WATCH: Trailer For James Franco’s “King Cobra” Finally Here, And This Is One Wild Ride

by Dan Tracer September 26, 2016


Since the project was announced nearly a year ago, there’s been a lot of talk about King Cobra, the murderous tale of lust, greed and crime set against a wholesome gay adult film backdrop.

And though we’ve seen images and a clip and even heard from the real life Brent Corrigan about how he’s portrayed, we’ve oddly still been waiting on a trailer.

Well the wait is over.

Hype can be a real killer when expectations are catapulted into the clouds above reality — and this film has seen nothing but hype — but we’ve got to say, the trailer makes the film look entirely watchable.

Check it out below:

The film tells the story of Cobra Video owner Bryan Kocis’ murder by two of his stars, Harlow Cuadra and Joseph Kerekes, in 2007. Naturally, James Franco is also involved, taking a producing and acting credit.

Both killers were sentenced to life in prison, and the gruesome details of the story inspired the book Cobra Killer: Gay Porn Murder.

According to the investigating coroner, Kocis was stabbed 28 times and his throat was cut, nearly decapitating him. His body was left in his house before it was set on fire. Officials had to use dental records to identify Kocis because his body was burned beyond recognition.

Kocis’ involvement and subsequent legal battle with a then-underage Brent Corrigan, aka Sean Lockhart, added an unhealthy dose of scandal to the already-insane story.
And now the whole sordid mess is coming to a theater near you! It’s kind of like Brokeback Mountain with few more twists and turns. Except not at all. It’s all fairly horrifying.

Slater has signed on to play Kocis, and Ringwald has been cast as Kocis’ sister.

King Cobra comes to theaters on October 21st.

Deodorant Ad Perfectly Nails What’s Wrong With The Trans Bathroom Debate

by Dan Tracer October 26, 2016

Leave it to a deodorant company to get what so many elected officials in this country can’t quite wrap their heads around — that there is no “one way” to express gender. And while right wing politicians and talking heads spend no shortage of time obsessing over how they, and most importantly their pure and [...]
