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 a room toward the back, lit and lined with plastic, a man wearing a black latex hood is bound in the aforementioned ropes and tethered to a wall. The actors block out how they will sit on white sawhorses around the three cameras in use before they walk up and cut the bound man down from the wall and carry him out of the frame. After that perfunctory scene, which is probably relevant at some other time, they are ready to get down to business. Actor Erik Rhodes has the brilliant idea to open the scene with him on the floor and the other two actors engaging in water sports above him. "Perfect," LaBruce agrees. "I have been wanting to get some of that in the film." LaBruce has accidentally spilled a bottle of poppers while blocking out the scene on-camera and one of the producers quickly clears it. "No words," is LaBruce's only real direction to the actors. Otherwise it seems the actors know exactly what to do. LaBruce seems to just sit back and let them work, knowing exactly how to make whatever they do work for his own ends. They enter the room and start to get to work. As the reader can imagine the rest and so could I, I slipped quietly out the back door, leaving LaBruce to his summer fun.
