This is really, really awesome! A very Truly Disturbing line of disgusting-looking deliciousness is going on show at a pop-up shop in east London to launch the DVD launch of The Helpers. Read on for all the goodies.
First a bit about the film and then the sweets.
Kristen Quintrall (Wolvezbayne), Denyce Lawton (“House of Payne”), Christopher Jones (You Got Served, JoJo Wright (Bring it On: All or Nothing, and former “The Man Show” juggy dancer Rachel Sterling star in Chris Stokes’ (You Got Served, House Party 4) upcoming The Helpers.
Here’s a plot synopsis that by the third paragraph goes from merely summarizing the story to spoiling major plot twists. Continue on at your own risk.
Seven friends, three couples (Claire, Todd, Jordan, Brandy, Ryan, and Anna) and their tag-along buddy Phil from Sacramento, California, all decide to go on a trip to Las Vegas. Phil decides to document their entire trip because his girlfriend Julia wasn’t able to make it. All seems fun until they hit a detour/road block. A couple hours of lost driving later, both of the back tires on the truck are blown out! After some moments of confusion and arguing, the gang comes up with the plan that all the girls will stay inside the truck while all the guys walk down the road to find Help. A few miles down the deserted road, the guys stumble upon a gas station/diner/motel, which conveniently has a tire shop attached.
The guys think they’re in luck when they’re offered help by the super friendly gas station attendant Brad, who just happens to be great with cars. Brad introduces them to Steve, the owner of the place, and Norah. Steve offers to fix the truck and also offers Todd a ride down the road in the tow truck to pick up the girls, while Jordan, Ryan, and Phil all stay in the diner for free food and drinks. Todd is a bit hesitant at first but agrees to go along with the idea. Once the girls get back, the fun really begins. Steve lets them all know that their truck won’t be ready until the morning so it would be best if they stayed the night in the motel free of charge. After some hours of drinking, partying, and karaoke, the gang all go to their rooms hammered!
The next morning, Phil wakes up with no memory of what happened the prior night. When leaving Todd and Claire’s room in a hurry to get everyone up and moving, his head gets amputated by Brad. Turns out that Brad and all the friendly helpful people aren’t so helpful at all but are really orphans who went crazy from being abused and beaten in a crooked orphanage a long time ago. Claire and Todd are both locked inside their room to watch all their friends die on the TV monitor in their room, one by one in the worse way possible. When Claire’s past is brought into the light, she finds out that it’s no accident that she and all her friends ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time. In fact, her father used to run the orphanage in which all this abuse went on and is responsible for this entire ordeal.
The creepy creations have been made by some of the UK’s finest delicacy artists to mark the release of The Helpers DVD, due to hit the shelves next week. The brains behind the little pop-up-shop of horror is ‘freelance creative director‘ Miss Cakehead, who brought London the first 18+ cupcake shop and hit the headlines with the macabre ‘human butchery shop’ which fashioned meat into body parts.
This time Miss Cakehead, real name Emma Thomas, has teamed up with food artists and master mixologists to put even the toughest of stomachs to the test.
Invitees will be able to tuck in to the gory medley which include a severed stomach cake, screaming chocolate baby heads and vomit cocktails.Co- organizer Koch Media Said: ‘The Helpers is a gory treat for horror fans, and this installation will certainly push the boundaries of what people can handle.‘The edible creations mirror moments from The Helpers, such as the horrific bathtub scene, so members of the public can become truly immersed in the film.’
No word yet on U.S. distrobution but when we find out we will get it to you. Now who wants a cupcake?
