This Valentine’s Day, Share My Pure Joy with Someone You Love

1 Comment

What better way to say “I love you” than with the gift of hardcore violence? James Cullen Bressack’s “My Pure Joy”, a film that was lensed when the director was only 18 years-old, is headed to DVD courtesy of Media Blasters on February 14th, 2012. Yes, Valentine’s Day. The film has been compared to the works of Frank Henenlotter, Takashi Miike, and Herschell Gordon Lewis, which, you know, sets the bar kind of high. After all, not many people come close to touching the genius of Henenlotter.

Take a peek at the official synopsis:

On the outside Adam appears to be a normal teenager, but underneath…his mind has been so rotted by trauma from his past and the gory films he watches, that he has blurred the lines between reality and pretend! This prompts Adam to start killing people in similar ways to films he watches, making sure to put his own little spin on it.

So remember: If you’re looking for a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone, show how much you care by picking up a copy of “My Pure Joy”. Who knows? You might get laid. Probably not, but strangers things have certainly happened.

He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)
