Breaking Glass is challenging your moral compass once again with their release of “The Gruesome Death of Tommy Pistol”. These guys love to put in an ever increasing level of sex and violence in their films. That pretty much means we like those guys. Should be able to get you a more formal review soon, but in the meantime make sure to check out the trailer, enjoy the foxy ladies in bondage and try to figure out where Breaking Glass Pictures starts and Troma stops.
From the good folks at Breaking Glass (maybe they should put out a porn, sister company called Cutting Glass?… just sayin’).
Breaking Glass Pictures has announced theMarch 27 release of the surreal, horror-comedy “The Gruesome Death of Tommy Pistol”. Director Aramis Sartorio takes viewers on a demented roller-coaster ride through the mind of a down-and-out actor forced to the edge where sanity and fantasy collide, where he must ask himself, “At what point do you give up on your dreams?”
“The Gruesome Death of Tommy Pistol” follows the disappointing life of struggling actor Tommy Pistol, who has turned his back on family and friends to pursue his dream of stardom. When he finally hits rock bottom, Tommy seeks solace in a penis pump and finds himself in a fantasy world where he pursues bloody vengeance against those who’ve put him down. What he doesn’t realize is that his whole life has been leading up to the moment when he awakes to find that he’s run out of second chances, and despite his regret, there is no going back.
10KBullets applauded its “willingness to go where very few horror films have gone before.” “Gruesome Death” has captivated viewers and made top horror films lists for 2011 as well as being named Best of the 2011 Pollygrind Film Festival.
The DVD release will come crammed with Special Features including director’s commentary, interviews with cast and crew, behind-the-scenes footage, a featurette of the first sketch comedy troupe from Queens, the “DJ Tommy Pistol” music video and “It Ate His Face” music video trailer, and a special featurette showcasing director Aramis Sartorio’s heavy metal band “Amorea”!
Dr. Jimmy Terror, more commonly known as James P. Harris, has been “writing your eyes” shut since 2010 with his horror themed blog Dr. Terror’s Blog of Horrors (whose name is a play on words derived from the Amicus film, Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors). In the early 2000’s he fronted the band The Vaudeville Vampires, a short-lived Horrorabilly band which saw the creation of a catalog of horror related songs before disbanding (with only one, six song demo ever being produced and distributed). He has had only one on screen appearance to date in the horror/suspense short, Ocean Parkway, as maniacal, gloved killer with a hair fetish. Having done some un-credited, behind the scenes work in some low budget genre pictures, he is currently working on his first foray into screenwriting with a demonic, retro gore entry that pays homage to Lucio Fulci, Dario Argento as well as other Italian masters of the genre.
