Labeling the just released CD soundtrack for the indie horror hit I WAS A TEENAGE WEREBEAR as “sexually and morally offensive”, eBay has removed it from sale, the film’s director, Tim Sullivan, reports.
Writing on Facebook, Sullivan said:
“YES it is TRUE ! eBay has banned the sale of the personally autographed TEENAGE WEREBEAR CD and 8×10 on its site, deeming it “sexually and morally offensive”. I KID YOU NOT!
Rather than fight an uphill battle with the fine folks in eBay’s ‘safety & trust” department, I have decided to offer an alternative to those wishing to indulge in the apparently corrupt delights of the Werebear World”
An homage to the drive-in movies of the 50’s and 60’s, CHILLERAMA is a comedy-horror anthology comprised of four vignettes from some of contemporary horror’s biggest filmmakers. I WAS A TEENAGE WEREBEAR is Sullivan’s contribution to the project.
WEREBEAR spoofs the Eisenhower/ Kennedy-era beach movies, by following a day in the life of closeted new kid Ricky O’Reilly (played by Sean Paul Lockhart, aka adult film superstar Brent Corrigan) who falls for Malibu High’s mysterious bad boy Talon (Anton Troy). When aroused, the two transform into bestial leather daddies, the titular werebears. The film features five rock ‘n roll musical numbers.
A full length musical stage version of WEREBEARS has been announced for LA in September of 2012. Stars Sean Paul Lockhart, Anton Troy and Tom Colby will be reprising their roles, with Sullivan writing the book and lyrics, and Werebear newcomer Sean Abley serving as director.
Sullivan is undaunted by the eBay slam. He has stated autographed copies of the CD will still be available for sale. People looking for autographed copies of the CD are being told to send an email to “email@example.com” and write “FUCK YES- I WANNA BE SEXUALLY AND MORALLY OFFENDED!” in the body of the email.
