Won Ton Baby Re-Animated for Stop Motion Mayhem
One flick we've had our eye on for a very long time is James Morgart's delightful, gory, abd really friggin' weird flick Won Ton Baby. If you haven't been keeping up with this one, click on the title in the above taxonomy and do so immediately as it looks nothing short of crazed!
While we all wait for the feature film to bring on the lunacy Morgart and company have partnered with the incredible stop-motion artist Michael Granberry ("Robot Chicken", Never Sleep Again) to bring us an animated tale of terror featuring the titular character called Midnight Snack. Check out a teaser for it below.
The feature film stars Debbie Rochon, Suzie Lorraine, Lou Martini, Jr., and Gunnar Hansen.
Over thirty years ago former brothel owner, Rachel “Madam” Won Ton, found herself involved with one of the wildest clients to ever enter her establishment. The drug-filled night leaves the Madam pregnant, but with no desire to let the child go, she soon quits the pandering business for a more “clean” life. Today, despite having converted her brothel into a fully functioning Chinese restaurant, the lore of the Madam's past continues to haunt her family's life as outsiders continue to hold their unwarranted prejudices against the Won Tons. However, social scorn becomes the least of the Madam's concerns when the mother of two is faced with a greater challenge: her adult daughter, Lily, has a parasitic twin growing in her belly!
When the fetus is removed, it is not only alive, its mutated umbilical cord soon leads the way to mischievous and, ultimately, flesh-eating, gore-filled antics. The baby's mass murdering and eating of the locals forces the Madam to confront not just her deformed child but also a secret from her past that she's hidden for years. But can the Madam solve things before it's too late? Or has she sealed her family's fate thanks to the release of the child?
From the twisted minds of scream queen Suzi Lorraine (Claang the Game and Holocaust, Holocaust) and first-time director James Morgart comes Won Ton Baby!, one of the craziest horror-comedy indie films of the year. A fully developed package of drugs, sex, blood, gore, and an Elvis impersonator add up to a special delivery of laughs as Debbie Rochon (Tromeo and Juliet and Nowhere Man) and Lou Martini, Jr. (The Sopranos and Spiker) battle it out with a umbilical cord-swinging cannibalistic fetus driven by an overindulgent and unsavory sexual appetite. Right from the moment of being carved out of the belly of Suzi Lorraine by horror icon Gunnar Hansen (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre), Won Ton Baby's antics will leave audiences feeling both delighted and violated.
