A triple threat is on its way, courtesy of Mike West and D.W. Frydendall. The bare bones plot of Body Trade concerns a group of prostitutes who discover how lucrative it is to get involved in the body-harvesting business.
First out of the multi-media gate will be the graphic novel, written by Mike West and illustrated by D.W. Frydendall, followed by the feature film. There will also be a web series, the plot of which continues the feature with the girls on the lam – wounded and strapped for cash. The web series stars Marianne D’Vaz as Mika Monaco, Krista Noguchi as Brandi Bunni, Mary Beth Rix as Suzi Spanx, Sarah Kellner as Candi Cane and Lise Moule as Mona. More info on the series can be found at its Facebook page, where two teaser videos are already posted (and more should follow in August).
Hmmm, we’ve already seen body harvesting in Turistas and Repo! The Genetic Opera. This one may or may not be an improvement on those films. It sounds like it will definitely be titillating. Writer/director Mike West has promised that the feature will be dramatic and suspenseful horror à la 8mm, the graphic novel “straight-up horror“, and the web series “experimental and sexy“. With character names like “Suzi Spanx” and “Brandi Bunni“, I don’t think viewers will feel they are watching the nomination hearings of a Supreme Court Justice. Bon Appetit!
