So who isnt a fan of Deadpit.com? Almost everyone that I have talked to is. Now you can see the story behind the show and learn a little about Uncle Bill and The Creepy Kentuckian with the new movie “Into the Pit” Check out the synopsis below, and stay tuned for our review of the movie coming soon!
The Shocking Story of Deadpit.Com is a rich story of friendship, diverging dreams, blatant escapism, and childhood nostalgia set against a high contrast rural backdrop.
Into The Pit tells the story of Wes Vance and Aaron Frye, two seemingly unremarkable Kentuckians who have lived in the small town of Prestonsburg their entire lives. They live in a world where family, coal, bluegrass, hunting and church are the pillars of life itself. For a couple of guys whose main interests in life are horror films, professional wrestling, and heavy metal; staving off boredom meant taking some serious and inventive measures. They needed an outlet, and in 2005 they found one, creating an Internet-based “Horror Talk Radio” show called Deadpit.com. Forming a pair of wacky alter egos by the names of “Uncle Bill” (Aaron) and “The Creepy Kentuckian” (Wes), the duo hosts a weekly MP3 show that features the latest horror news, film reviews, and in-depth interviews with a roster of horror royalty: John Carpenter, Joe Dante and George A. Romero, among many others.
In the film, Wes focuses on Deadpit full-time, juggling duties on the site while freelancing as a web master. Simply put, he is the “Creepy Kentuckian,” a fun-loving guy whose passion for horror and humor is apparent in everything he does. The show’s other host, Aaron, is part “Uncle Bill,” and part graduate student pursuing a certification in mental health counseling. To help relieve the stress of this pursuit, Aaron becomes “Uncle Bill.” Under this pseudonym, Aaron lets loose, becoming as lewd and crude as he wants, obsessing over the gory details of horror movies and commenting with charisma and humor matched only by his co-host.
As the show grows in popularity, Aaron gets closer to gaining his degree. He begins to feel the tension between his two personas as an outrageous horror show host by night and a professional counselor by day. Adding to the stress is an ambivalent Wes, who sees the show as top priority and offers little empathy. Aaron finds himself in an ethical, professional, and internal quandary. The question becomes unavoidable: when or if will Aaron put away his scarier passions in the pursuit of more altruistic endeavors?
The future of Deadpit.com is uncertain.
