After an extended hiatus from public life spent building the world’s largest people eating sex monster (among other things), underground film legend (Go To Hell, Mondo Collecto, Mark of the Astro Zombies) and lauded raconteur Raymond P. Whalen (a.k.a. Rock And Roll Ray) is returning as the subject of a new feature documentary entitled VORE KING at ANTHOLOGY FILM ARCHIVES as part of the NEW FILMMAKERS NEW YORK series.
VORE KING, a project of CREATIVE CAPITAL and recipient of the BEST DOCUMENTARY award at MIDWEST WIERDFEST, is a detailed portrait of R.P. Whalen, world famous horror host, trash movie guru, carnival sideshow barker, and America’s premier purveyor of vorarephilia fetish film. Vorarephilia, popularly known as “vore,” is an eating fetish where arousal is brought about by the act of one creature consuming another creature, most commonly manifested by monsters eating women. This documentary follows Whalen’s process of conceiving and constructing an array of vore creatures while he rekindles a bond with his elderly father and battles the demons of suburban Milwaukee. VORE KING features interactions with R.P. Whalen’s actresses (affectionately known as “La Vore Girls”) and family, as well as a rare glimpse into the production of vore film and the mind of a magical (and volatile) super genius.
Said VORE KING director Dan S, “Ray had to leave the limelight several years ago under very unfortunate circumstances, so I’m overjoyed that I have the privilege of bringing him back to the fore with this triumphant celebration of his life and work. I can’t wait for the citizens of New York to finally indulge in this new and exciting banquet for the senses.”
Dan S is a writer/director/producer working out of Minneapolis, MN. Dan has primarily been recognized for his experimental narrative features (SEEKING WELLNESS, INVINCIBLE FORCE) but recently delved into the documentary form (NED ABDUL NEEDS MORE RETAIL SPACE, OLD MAN). He has twice been the recipient of The McKnight Fellowship for Filmmaking (2010/2016), and was given the 2015 Creative Capital Award for Moving Image in support of VORE KING. Dan will be in attendance on May 17th to defend the film.
NEW FILMMAKERS is New York’s longest running and most popular screening series, focusing on films that are often overlooked by traditional film festivals.
