Yes, you read that headline correctly.

Written and directed by Justin Kelly, King Cobra is based on the true story of fame, murder, and money in the world of gay porn.

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. 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), 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.

King Cobra can be watched on VOD beginning October 21st. You can also read the book Kelly based his script on: “Cobra Killer: Gay Porn, Murder, and the Manhunt to Bring the Killers to Justice” by Andrew E. Stoner and Peter A. Conway.
