Here’s Your Chance To See The Violent Debauchery Of ‘Prison Pit’ In Motion In L.A.

Sure, artist/writer Johnny Ryan‘s Prison Pit is a series of graphic novels that escalates its depictions of violence and all-around immorality to such a level that readers assume that there’s no possible way Ryan can top himself, and then he does. But do the drawings move?

Well, they didn’t, until now. If you’re in the Los Angeles area, you can go see what promises to be an X-rated animated version of the books, now five volumes deep into the grotesque, occasionally genitals-based brutality of protagonist Cannibal Fuckface and the other inhabitants of the hellish titular pit. It’ll be at Cine Family on August 30.

Here’s how Fantagraphics Books describes the movie in a blog post:

If your favorite WWE personas came to life and unleashed the worst horrors on each other, you’ll be barely scratching the surface of how amazing Prison Pit, and its DVD companion are.

It’s my secret hope that this animated film is the first step toward a Prison Pit live-action film, and, speaking of WWE superstars, I truly hope that Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista gets considered for the role of Cannibal Fuckface. After all, he’s got experience walking through a pit of danger.

The L.A. screening isn’t the world premiere of the movie (it was shown at Comic-Con International in San Diego), but it’s likely an opportunity to check out what will be a very small number of public screenings. Plus, Ryan, comedian Rick Shapiro and Workaholics star Blake Anderson will be there to offer up commentary.

The screening starts at 2:45 p.m. Tickets are still available for $12 each here.
