LaBruce Takes on Zombie Porn

Bruce LaBruce has long blurred the boundaries between art-house and porn films, but his latest project, L.A. Zombie, is in fact a porn flick -- with a message. Check out photos from our day on the set.

In an unmarked gallery space in Los Angeles just below the I-10 freeway I find director Bruce LaBruce sitting unassuming in a yellow folding chair in the corner, laptop balanced on his knees, checking his e-mail or maybe reading the news. Everyone is milling around. Boxes are scattered against the empty white walls. A single folding table holds, in no particular order, a few bottles of water, some candles, an empty box of KY lubricant, and a couple of yards of red and black rope. Four larger-than-life actors are dressed in an array of leather briefs with zipper backs, harnesses, Jag boots, and torn T-shirts. They are preparing for the last day of shooting for LaBruce's latest film L.A. Zombie, which had been shooting for just seven days. In this scene the four men in question will engage in an orgy and then decide to order drugs. When the drug dealers arrive, played by the rap artist Deadlee and Trevor Wayne (other non-porn actors appear in the film as well such as Santino Rice from Project Runway ), they shoot the four men dead. But never fear, because moments later L.A. Zombie 's star François Sagat will arrive on the scene and fuck them all back to life. Of course, he is an alien zombie -- or maybe just a delusional homeless person.
