Like an alien from another planet, director Lee Roy Myers came to earth, landed in San Fernando Valley and soon began making the Porn Parody business his own.
No one really knew who Myers was, but he gained quick acceptance into porn society and suddenly emerged as one of the top go-to guys for the reinvented parody genre.
With that kind of real life story in play, I’d figure Myers for at least a porn spin of the Invasion of the Body Snatchers. Close, but no space ship. Though Myers comes pretty near, having just put the wraps to “The Human Sexipede,” a take on the cult horror hit, “The Human Centipede”.
The original, a Dutch film directed by Tom Six, is about girls who get surgically connected, ass-to-mouth, into a chain of humans with a single digestive system. Family entertainment through and through, you might say. Bring back the drive-ins.
Myers’ project, in tandem with Tom Byron’s company, has gotten a lot of mainstream play in recent weeks from websites devoted to the truly weird.
“Crazy, huh?” laughs Myers acknowledging the attention.
“We picked the project because we figured it was nuts enough that people would say, ‘look at the crazy people in pornography!’”
In all of this gee-whiz and hoo-ha, one’s likely to forget an even earlier announcement Myers put out that he was leaving New Sensations. Lest one be looking for knife fights, ego collisions, the ever popular citing of creative differences, or tabloid confessions that Myers had become world-weary from making parodies prompting his decision to leave, Myers claims it wasn’t that way at all.
“I like doing parodies,” states Myers flatly in rebuttal.
“And I owe a lot to New Sensations. I’m very grateful for what they did for me. But I really feel like I needed to try new things, different projects like The Human Sexipede, something that wouldn’t necessarily fly at New Sensations.”
One thing’s for certain. Myers won’t have much time to bum around, cultivate the five o’clock shadow he’s known for and reside on his laurels.
He’s got his own studio Nightingale Pictures to think about plus a line called Lee Roy Myers Presents [look for a parody of Tron]. This, aside from other deals in the works with Tom Byron Pictures. (more…)
