Based on a stranger-than-fiction true story, King Cobra is a deliciously dark, twisted plunge into the behind-the-scenes world of the pornography industry. Making its Blu-ray and DVD debut on February 14th, 2017 from Shout! Factory, in conjunction with IFC Midnight, King Cobra also includes an audio commentary with director and co-writer Justin Kelly, outtakes from the film and the theatrical trailer as bonus features. Fans of this debauched thriller can pre-order their copies now at ShoutFactory.com.
It’s 2006, YouTube is in its infancy, and internet porn is still behind a paywall. Taking the stage name Brent Corrigan, a fresh-faced, wannabe adult video performer (Garrett Clayton) is molded into a star by Stephen (Christian Slater, Mr. Robot), a closeted gay porn mogul who runs the skin flick empire Cobra Video from his seemingly ordinary suburban home. But as Brent’s rise and demands for more money put him at odds with his boss, he also attracts the attention of a rival producer (James Franco) and his unstable lover (Keegan Allen) who will stop at nothing to squash Cobra Video and steal its number one star. Co-starring Alicia Silverstone and Molly Ringwald, King Cobra is part delirious tabloid-shocker satire, part American tragedy.
