Taste and Then Talk Back to Stuart Gordon in Los AngelesStuart Gordon has brought us many classic movies throughout his career, and recently his stage productions of Nevermore and Re-Animator: The Musical have lit up the stage wherever they’ve played. Now we have some new details about his latest stage play, Taste, and more!

From the Press Release
You’re invited to the most disturbing dinner party of the year. Based on a shocking true story, two men meet online and make a unique arrangement: One will kill, cook, and eat the other. Taste imagines their first and only meeting, told in real time, in a working kitchen.

In 2011, acclaimed horror director Stuart Gordon brought his feature-film cult classic Re–Animator to the stage with the inspired songs of composer Mark Nutter and created a singing, dancing Re-Animator: The Musical. The hilarious, blood-drenched show ran for six months at the Steve Allen Theater before triumphant runs at the New York Musical Theater Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It was honored by the Ovation Awards, the LA Drama Critics Circle, and won six LA Weekly awards, including BEST MUSICAL. Gordon’s earlier stage work includes Nevermore…An Evening with Edgar Allan Poe starring Jeffrey Combs, which earned rave reviews on both coasts and is currently touring the country.

Now audiences can be among the first to witness Gordon and playwright Benjamin Brand’s unique vision of an all-consuming relationship. Warning: Due to strong sexual content and imagery, no one under the age of 18 will be admitted.

Taste stars Chris L. McKenna as Vic, the man who has chosen to be eaten. He was last seen onstage in Re-Animator: The Musical and played the title role in Gordon’s film King of the Ants. Donal Thoms-Cappello is Terry, the gourmet cook with a taste for the bizarre. A company member of Sacred Fools Theater, Donal was seen last season in Watson and the Dark Arts of Harry Houdini as the famous escape artist.

Special effects will be provided by Tony Doublin, who won an LA Drama Critics Award and LA Weekly Award for creating the wonders of the Splash Zone for Re-Animator: The Musical. Gabe Bartalos, best known for his film work with director Frank Henenlotter and Matthew Barney’s Cremaster Cycle, will provide special makeup effects.

The Sacred Fools Theater Company is dedicated to fostering a dynamic, empowered artistic community in Los Angeles. Notable previous productions include the Buster Keaton comedic biography Stoneface, the award-winning action-comedy Watson, the ongoing late-night episodic extravaganza Serial Killers, the award-winning musical Louis & Keely, and recent hits Neverwhere and Absolutely Filthy. Run solely by the ensembled artists, the company’s smashing 17th season continues its ongoing commitment to the development of new plays and projects which challenge traditional expectations of the theatrical experience. Its goal is to produce work, which invigorates, enlightens and entertains.

Synapse’s Suspiria 4K Restoration Gets a Release Date

Published

on

Earlier this year, we wrote about Synapse Films’ Suspiria 4K restoration and how it was available for pre-order. The weird catch was that there was no release date confirmed and that pre-orders would go out sometime in December 2017. Today that changes as we can confirm that the 3-disc special edition Blu-ray collection will come out December 19th, just in time for Christmas but a little late for Hanukkah. Any chance we can have one extra night this year?

Restored over three years, Synapse has been working tirelessly to create the ultimate version of Dario Argento’s 1977 classic supernatural horror film, which has since gone on to become one of the most recognized and lauded titles in the genre. This cut has been overseen and approved by Luciano Tovoli, the Director of Photography on the film.

Pre-orders are still available via Synapse Films’ website.

Special features:
*Limited edition of only 6000 units produced
*Exclusive Steelbook packaging and collector’s o-card sleeve, featuring artwork from Malleus, Van Orton Design, Juan José Saldarriaga & Chris MacGibbon
*Three disc [Two Blu-rays + One CD] limited collector’s edition (only 6000 units) containing a new 4K restoration of the original uncut, uncensored Italian 35mm camera negative exclusively done by Synapse Films, with color correction supervised and approved by SUSPIRIA Director of Photography, Luciano Tovoli
*Original 4.0 1977 English language LCRS sound mix not heard since the theatrical release in 1977, presented in high-resolution DTS-HD MA 96 Khz/24-bit audio
*Italian 5.1 surround sound mix
*Two audio commentaries by authors and Argento scholars, Derek Botelho, David Del Valle & Troy Howarth

After finding an ad online for “video work,” she thinks she may have found the subject of her dreams. She drives to a remote house in the forest and meets a man claiming to be a serial killer (Mark Duplass, reprising his role from the previous film). Unable to resist the chance to create a truly shocking piece of art, she agrees to spend the day with him. However, as the day goes on she discovers she may have dug herself into a hole she can’t escape.
