'SAW' Franchise Creator Endorses Dick Chibbles' Porn Parody

Craig Shaw
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Blue Circus Entertainment’s “SAW: A Hardcore Parody” is full of sick twists, but the tables were turned on the cast and crew at the official release party last Friday at Aqua Lounge, where the creator of the mainstream “SAW” franchise, James Wan, showed up to give the film a nod.

Girls & Corpses magazine joined the festivities to celebrate the unveiling of its fall issue with cover model Andy San Dimas.

In addition to Wan, mainstream horror director Mike Mendez ("Gravedancers," "The Convent") made a surprise appearance.

“I was utterly shocked to see him walk in the door, it was an honor to meet James," said Dick Chibbles, the CEO of Blue Circus who wrote and directed the "SAW" parody. “Then to my surprise he asked me for my autograph.”

The cast and crew posed with Wan and Mendez for several photos, while the live entertainment included Maria the Snake Babe from Las Vegas showing off her collection of rare reptiles, the crowning of the Girls & Corpses “Miss Skanksgiving Pageant” winner, and the side-show feats of Murrugun the Mystic.

Murrugun wowed the audience with sword swallowing, hammering nails through his head, and skewering his flesh like a human pin-cushion. For his finale, he invited the audience to come up and staple money to his body with a real industrial staple gun. Wan stapled a $20 bill to Murrugun’s forehead.

“The night was insane," said Rob “Corpsy” Rhine, deaditor-in-chief of Girls & Corpses magazine. "We would like to congratulate Lilly Lashes who won the ‘Miss Skanksgiving’ beauty competition over 10 other writhing babes, and then paraded on stage with her human skin sash, bone crown and golden cock trophy. What a night!"

Among the "SAW" cast members attending the event were Syren DeMer, James Bartholet, David Lord, Britney Amber, Heidi Mayne, Jack Vegas, Evan Stone, Jordan Lane, and Daisy Layne.
