This weekend, Master of Horror Stuart Gordon’s latest theatrical offering, the cannibalistic tale Taste written by Benjamin Brand and starring Chris McKenna and Donal Thoms-Capello, debuted at the Sacred Fools Theatre Company (660 N. Heliotrope, Hollywood) and will continue its run through May 17, 2014.

At a recent preview performance for Taste, Daily Dead had the opportunity to sit down and briefly chat with Gordon afterwards about what attracted him to Brand’s story, his experiences working with his two performers, the true horrors of cannibalism and his thoughts on directing a film versus directing live theater.

Check out our exclusive video interview with Gordon below and be sure to check out Taste if you’re in the Los Angeles area in the next month- it’s an experience not to be missed!

"You’re invited to the most disturbing dinner party of the year. Based on a shocking true story, two men meet online and make a unique arrangement: one will kill, cook, and eat the other. Taste imagines their first and only meeting, told in real time, in a working kitchen."
