Is Leaked Raging Stallion Clip Snuff?
I got a rather disturbing email the other day from someone at Raging Stallion, and I’m not sure what to make of it. It seems that the latest RSS feature, Focus Refocus includes a rather graphic gay murder scene featuring auto-asphyxiation, strangulation and sex, of sorts, with the dead body. Fairly gruesome stuff. Anyway, I never know how much to trust emails from within a porn company (too much gay politics as it is), but my friend seemed fairly uncomfortable with the turn the movie had taken — essentially it looks like a gay snuff film — and ripped an FLV from the server (aka pardon the quality) to show me.
(Pardon the quality and the watermark — he had to convert the raw file using a free service. If you’re having trouble viewing it with the player above, I’ve posted a direct link to the FLV here.
This isn’t Raging Stallion’s first brush with death — last year’s To The Last Man was a virtual bloodbath — but this may be the first time where a dead body gets a facial. Did the sales (and GayVNs) for To The Last Man give them a taste for blood? Is it dangerous to suggest this is hot? Is it legal?
I don’t know if my friend expected to write a vitriolic editorial, or call up Chris Ward, but I don’t relish telling directors their business (or rather I do but I don’t relish the response). But I thought I might as well post it and let you be the judge. Let’s me off the hook a little. In a year that’s already seen incestuous twins,execution, and gang rape — has Raging Stallion gone too far?
Turning phone ringer off … now. (Hi Chris!)
