(CHATSWORTH, CA) -- Award-winning director Thomas Zupko has just wrapped production on his first feature for Elegant Angel called "Flesh Circus". The movie, which Zupko calls a cross between "The Devil in Miss Jones" and "Dante's Inferno" stars Veronica Caine, Olivia del Rio, Scotti Andrews, Britney Blue, and Rosanna de La Vega, along with Zupko stalwarts Brian Surewood, Mr. Pete, Valentino, Scott Snott and Tony Tedeschi.
"In many ways, this is the best video I've ever shot". Zupko says. "It has all of the surreal, dark elements, an almost Fellini-esque non-plot, and kick-ass anal sex. I owe a great deal of debt to my cast and crew, who, with their unflinching dedication to bringing this project to life, once again made me look good."
"Flesh Circus" is an intriguing portrayal of a young woman's journey (played by Scotti Andrews) through the desert. Using symbolism and metaphors, Zupko weaves his story of self-discovery using a combination of sexy, macabre, and outlandish imagery, as he is so well known for. It also features the hardcore anal debut of buxom brunette Blue, and Scottish slut Andrews in a scorching three-way with Surewood and Valentino. The movie also marks the return to the XXX screen of Caine, the star of some of Zupko's most notorious and unforgettable vids.
"Every sex scene is unique in its own way." Zupko says. "You got Mr. Pete as Einstein tearing up the bountiful ass of Veronica Caine as Marilyn Monroe; Tedeschi introducing Blue to the beauty of sodomy in five different positions, the juice literally pouring out of her holes; Valentino and Surewood stretching Andrews browneye from Van Nuys to Dunkirk, waging their own Battle of Stirling Bridge on her meaty bum; de LA Vegas' asshole sucking up cock and jizz like a Venus flytrap."
Zupko says that the climactic scene between Valentino as Sasquatch and Olivia del Rio as a high society prima donna is award-worthy. "After making pornography for a good number of years, it's rare you shoot a sex scene that is so dead-on in every aspect. It leaves you speechless, and reinforces why you got into the business in the first place. It's one of those scenes that people will talk about for years to come. I feel it's as close to a perfect sex scene as you can get, and ranks up there with the best I've ever done."
Zupko also feels that he achieved his ultimate objective with Flesh Circus. "I wanted to make a flick where the sex was 150% strokeable, draped by some of the coolest imagery and camera work the business has ever seen....a video where you can nut to each of the sex scenes, but then want to come back to watch all of the cool stuff in between.", the mad auteur says.
Axel Braun, General Manager of Elegant Angel had this to say about Zupko's first foray with the company: "Last Friday I went to visit Tom Zupko on the set of Flesh Circus. Here's what I saw: I saw a carefully constructed set, where the care for detail was matched only by the quality of the shots. I saw a lot of people happy to give their best, motivated by knowing that they were part of something extraordinary. I saw a man completely in control of the situation, exquisitely polite with everybody, yet determined not to settle for anything less than the best. In other words, I saw a great director at work."
"Flesh Circus" is scheduled for a May 27th release. Look for it at your local video store or distributor, or call Elegant Angel at 1-800-495-5594.
