The Guy Who Brought Us ‘Re-Animator’ and ‘Robot Jox’ Is Giving Us An Onstage “Taste”

Reanimator_Musical_6_25_12

Re-Animator Director Stuart Gordon (also of Robot Jox!) will be bringing the play “Taste” to Los Angeles. This teams him up again with producer Adam Goldworm, whom he worked with on a recent episode of “Fear Itself”. The play is written by Benjamin Brand (November), and it’s about cannibals, which is a nice emerging trend what with Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno on the horizon and all.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, “Written by Benjamin Brand, Taste is based on the true story of Armin Miewes, aka the Rotenburg Cannibal, the German man who achieved international notoriety for killing and eating a voluntary victim whom he had found via the Internet.

This definitely sounds like it’s worth a night out on the town. Plus, it’s not like this is Gordon’s first foray onto the stage. Remember “Re-Animator: The Musical”? More details as they emerge.

    Anyone see the movie ‘Cannibal’is that was based on this? Barely any dialogue a whole lot of fucked up. Lots of gay sex and some very realistic gore. At one point you see Armin goin at where the mans penis used to be.. anyway, kinda doubt the play will reach that level of realism. I’d love to see how they do the whole cutting off the penis and eating it on a stage.

      That sounds like a damn good play regardless of if that’s what they are adapting.

    Here’s a short film version minus the gay sex.
