LOS ANGELES — John Stagliano is returning to Berlin to promote his darkly decadent new film, “Voracious,” and he’s bringing Brooklyn Lee and Lea Lexis, the main stars of the movie.
Lee and Lexis will be meeting fans, signing autographs and posing for photos at Europe’s largest adult event, the Venus International Trade Fair, on Oct. 18-20.
On the evening of Saturday the 20th they’ll be the guests of honor at the film’s release party, being held at Club Insomnia, which Stagliano calls, “the finest S&M sex club in the world.”
The vampire-themed “Voracious,” shot in Budapest, Berlin and Los Angeles, got its DVD debut with a collector’s edition four-disc set released on Sept. 27. Stagliano’s latest fetish-laden, sexually intense cinema this time runs more than six hours on two discs with bonus content on a third disc and a music soundtrack CD.
Regarding working with Stagliano, Lee said, “To this day, I am in awe of the opportunity I was given to work with a true legend in his return to world of cinematic erotica. Into this project, we poured our sweat, tears ... and a little fake blood. It is with great pleasure I’m heading back to Berlin to celebrate and promote this very special film. And of course, who wouldn’t want to party at a German fetish club?”
Club Insomnia is where Stagliano shot the climactic scene from “Voracious” as well as a memorably nasty scene for his “Fashionistas Safado” masterpiece. Now the club will be the scene of the “Voracious” release party, preceded by a red-carpet media reception and media photo opportunity.
Interested European media should schedule and RSVP for the Club Insomnia photo ops with Brian Gross (firstname.lastname@example.org). The red carpet event runs from 9 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20. An invitation-only fetish party follows at 10.
Stagliano, Lee and Lexis will all be appearing at Venus Fair Berlin for press interviews, photos and autograph sessions. Fans can meet the trio at the Paradise Films booth; industry attendees can meet them in the B2B section at the Little Hollywood booth.
In addition, Hot Magazine has scheduled a limousine for an extensive photo shoot of Stagliano, Lee and Lexis around Berlin’s landmarks.
“Voracious” started as an online serial with chapters presented to EvilAngel.com and Buttman.com subscribers. Lea Lexis remarked, “We got amazing feedback from the episodes, but I am convinced that the DVD will create an even bigger reaction, now that our fans get to experience the story all together. ‘Voracious’ was a project like something I have never done before and I couldn’t be more proud of it. I am very excited to return to Berlin to celebrate the release of this amazing movie.”
The Venus International Trade Fair in Berlin will be held at Messe Berlin Fairgrounds.
Club Insomnia is located at Alt Tempelhof 17 – 19, 12099 Berlin.
