I’m a fan of Kim Sønderholm. He’s a guy who you may not recognize his name, but if you’re an avid horror movie-goer, you’re gonna recognize his face. I recently saw him in JA Steele’s BLOOD FARE (my review), and although he had only a small role, he’s got the reputation to help other fellow filmmakers make, produce, and promote horror films. Well now it’s Sønderholm’s turn and his film, LITTLE BIG BOY: THE DEATH STALKER MURDERS, is getting a DVD release this August from Worldwide Multimedia. Sønderholm wrote and directed this one and it stars Sønderholm, Lloyd Kaufman, Gry Bay, Monique Gata Dupree, and Eileen Dietz. Check out the press release:
Controversial indie film “LITTLE BIG BOY” finally coming to DVD!
Controversial independent horror comedy “LITTLE BIG BOY: THE DEATH STALKER MURDERS” (formerly “Little Big Boy: The Rise and Fall of Jimmy Duncan”) is finally getting a proper DVD release. The film has been in the works for a long time but controversy have so far prohibited it from coming out. This is about to change now, as the film will be released onto DVD on August 21 from Worldwide Multimedia, http://wwmm.info/
“Little Big Boy” tells the story of acclaimed horror film director Jimmy Duncan, infamous for his psychotic temper and his unique brand of exploitative movies. Having witnessed the murder of his mother at the age of seven, Duncan grew up in an orphanage and then worked his way up in the movie industry. Caught up in the downward spiral of his own success, surrounded by movie reviewers who refused to acknowledge his obvious talent, starlet wannabes with zero ability to act, producers with little patience, and those who will exploit anyone to become famous in a soul eating industry, we follow Jimmy while he is working on his latest feature film “Death Stalker.” The shoot quickly turns into a descent into insanity when his leading lady leaves the production halfway through shooting the film. Haunted by his childhood experiences, Duncan finds himself in an abyss from which there is no return.
Featuring Troma’s Lloyd Kaufman; April Monique Burril (Chainsaw Sally, Good Sisters); Monique Dupree (Satan Hates You, Spirit); Megan Sacco (Avantgarde); Amy Lynn Best (A Feast of Flesh, Splatter Movie); Rachel Grubb (Terror Overload, Strip Club Slasher); Brandon Slagle (Methodic, Mega Shark vs Crocosourus); David C.

The troubled film maker Jimmy Duncan is played by Kim Sønderholm who also directed the film, while his younger self is played by Danish actor-rapper Toke Lars Bjarke, well known for his performance in 2011’s Best Foreign Picture Academy Award Winner and Golden Globe Winner “In A Better World”.
Director Kim Sønderholm about the film “The “Little Big Boy” project started out as an experiment very much inspired by the documentary “Overnight” about the making of “Boondock Saints”. I found that film very interesting and thoughts about making a fictional documentary – or mockumentary if you will – started buzzing around in my head. I wanted to infuse some of the somewhat toe crumbling humor known from sitcoms such as “The Office” and before I knew it I had a script and started shooting and luckily a lot of great people were keen on the idea – without them I would never have succeeded.
It’s probably gonna cause a lot of controversy and I know a lot of people are instantly gonna be turned off by it and hate it automatically, but I also know the opposite to be true – I know a lot of people are gonna find it hysterical and hopefully even thought provocating. I know I had a blast making the film although it’s very different from anything you’ve probably ever seen and I hope that enthusiasm shines through. Having said that, this is a one-off for me, at this point I don’t know if I will ever direct another film but if I do, it will be back to straight fiction for me. As fun as this film has been to make, as big was the nightmare – especially getting it released to the public, a task that has taken me well over two and a half years. But I am happy to say I finally found a distribution company I felt could carry the task with grace and take it in the right direction. So… Without further due – make sure you get the film – out August 21! ..and enjoy!”
