VORE KING
  
Directed by Dan S
Produced by Dan S
Vore King is a detailed portrait of R.P. Whalen, world famous horror host, trash movie guru, carnival sideshow barker, and America's premier purveyor of vorarephilia pornography. Vorarephilia, popularly known as "vore", is a sexual fetish where arousal is brought about by the act of one creature consuming another creature, often manifested by monsters eating women. This film follows Whalen's process of conceiving and constructing an array of vore creatures while he rekindles a bond with his elderly father and battles the demons of suburban Milwaukee. Vore King features interactions with R.P. Whalen's actresses (affectionately known as "La Vore Girls") and family, as well as a rare glimpse into the production of vore film and the mind of a magical (and volatile) super genius. A monument to the artifice of deviation. Vore King was funded by The Creative Capital Grant for Moving Image, awarded in 2015.
