Legendary music producer, artist, and underground luminary Kim Fowley grabs a scalpel and joins The Art of Bleeding’s fetish-friendly nursing staff in this doll hospital ether dream of nursery rhymes, anatomical striptease, and decidedly adult doll-women.
Hell hath no fury like a nurse scorned in this gruesome but witty horror story from Thailand. Dr. Tar is a charming but devious surgeon who has a profitable side business supplying black market dealers with fresh human organs for transplant. Dr. Tar’s staff of seven nubile nurses help him find a steady source of victims, but one of his aides, Tahwan, is shocked to find that her sister Nook is on the doctor’s list of upcoming cases, and threatens to turn him in to the police. Dr. Tar puts Tahwan under the knife to keep her quiet, and she conveniently dies during surgery. But a few days later, Dr. Tar is receiving an award for his work saving lives, the ghost of Tahwan begins stalking the halls of the hospital, seeking violent revenge against the doctor and her fellow nurses who failed to come to her rescue.
The blog’s been sleepy, but we’ve been more than busy on the shooting stage.
“All Things Nice,” a new video set in a sort of surreal doll hospital and starring ever-shocking rock impresario Kim Fowley along with the Art of Bleeding nurses will be in production throughout the summer. Look for a premiere event in early Fall.
Thanks, Skary Nurse, for reminding us about this video….
Benway is the name of a character in many of William S. Burroughs’ novels, including Naked Lunch. Usually referred to as “Dr. Benway” or “Doc Benway,” (his first name is not revealed), he was used by the author to parody the medical profession and, perhaps, the misuses of science in general. More of a maverick surgical artist than a doctor, Benway lacks a conscience and is more interested in his performance (and his next fix) than his patients’ well-being. Benway is a manipulator and coordinator of symbolic systems, an expert on all phases of interrogation, brainwashing and control. He is also a master of disguise and gender ambiguity, playing the role of ‘mild mannered doctor’ stateside, whilst simultaneously maintaining the persona of ‘fadela- the bitch queen’, leading a carde of lesbian lovers in the medina and puppeteering a drug network.
In 1955, Der Struwwepeter (“Slovenly Peter”), the startlingly grisly collection of cautionary tales for children mentioned in our last post was made into a charming technicolor fantasy film by director Fritz Genschow, who had previously directed versions of other classics familiar to German children such as Hansel and Gretel, Sleeping Beauty, and other fairy tales compiled by the Brothers Grimm. With the exception of a Christmas miracle which undoes all the dreadful fates befalling the naughty children, the film restricts itself to narration provided by the book’s poems. Rather than speaking dialogue, the characters dance their way through each scene in a sort of ballet choreographed to exactly mimic the look of the book’s original illustrations. You can read more about the production on Forces of Geek. And be sure to check out the other YouTube Struwwelpeter clips featuring children having their thumbs cut off, rabbits shooting hunters, death by gluttony, and children carried off by wind-born umbrellas.
