Final Flesh

Final Flesh is a film by Vernon Chapman, one of the creators of PFFR, Xavier: Renegade Angel and Wonder Showzen. He screened the film last night in LA to a packed house at the Silent Movie Theater. The films set-up is this: There are porn companies online that do custom porn. You can send in whatever your fantasy is and they will act it out, record it, and send you the tape. Well, Vern wrote a series of absurd scripts for the porn actors to do- weird and bizarre shit, no sex. He made it so the actors thought he would be getting off on it- not turning their videos into art films. He presented the films exactly as he received them- the companies did all the titling and editing. The result is very twisted, often times gross, and always funny. The film is in four parts. The first begins with three black actors talking around a table moments before the Atom Bomb is about to drop. One of the ladies goes into the shower and pours a jar of ‘neglected children’s tears’ over herself in an erotic manner. Read into this what you will… She goes on to give birth to a piece of raw meat that she breastfeeds. And that’s just the beginning; the parts get progressively crazier from there. Check out the DVD that will be released by Drag City later this year.

I couldnt find any images online from the film so I just put the PFFR logo...

As a lover of Wonder Showzen, I am definitely looking forward to this.

it's genius bc of it's stream-of-consciousness, dreamy weirdness, but also very samey in terms of the nonsequitor type humor vernon chapman always implement.

i felt it was like watching the kid sketches he had the grade schoolers do on wonder showzen. ignorant people saying stuff they couldn't possibly comprehend. which is the point.

so it's funny, and worth a watch (esp w/ some good weed) so propz to V-Chap, but dude now needs to find some focus or else his humor is going to have to be passed off as eclectic randomness.
