Bruce LaBruce, a Canadian film director and photographer, does not produce work for the timid. His most recent film, L.A. Zombie, created a huge buzz when LaBruce was denied permission to show it at the Melbourne International Film Festival. This refusal resulted in a ban of the film in Australia. According to a press release sent out by LaBruce, the artist is being censored on his roundabout way of portraying the homeless epidemic in Los Angeles.

The film is quite graphic, and the lead zombie character brings the dead back to life through sexual contact. You won't see any of L.A. Zombie here, but the images provided give you a glimpse at the gore within the film.
