Paul Walker wants to kiss Jerry Springer's ass in 'Pawn Shop Chronicles' -- NSFW VIDEO

Pawn Shop Chronicles should not be confused with Pawn Stars or Hardcore Pawn, two reality TV shows that delve into the hardscrabble lives of people who make their livelihoods wheeling and dealing others’ valuables. Pawn Shop Chronicles is a new movie from director Wayne Kramer (The Cooler) centered around a Southern pawn shop that attracts all sorts of extreme trouble. Paul Walker plays a white-supremacist meth-head with a confusing fondness for Jerry Springer, Brendan Fraser is the saddest Elvis impersonator, and Matt Dillon is a vengeful husband who tortures Elijah Wood with the gusto of Marathon Man and A Clockwork Orange, combined.

In this totally NSFW clip — and I can’t emphasize enough just how NSFW is it — there is mayhem, naked zombie women, and the most violent Mexican stand-off ever imagined that includes a clown armed with a bow-and-arrow.

To repeat, this teaser is completely NSFW. Watch it at your own peril and/or delight. READ FULL STORY

Lukas Haas spirals into oblivion in 'Meth Head' -- TRAILER

The first time moviegoers saw Lukas Haas was when he was the 9-year-old Amish boy in Witness, and ever since then we’ve watched him grow up.

The haunted little boy in Lady in White (1988), the alien-fighting teen in Mars Attacks! (1996), and the imperious drug kingpin known as The Pin in Brick (2005) are just a few of his memorable roles. But now he’s taking the lead in the new indie drama Meth Head, as a young man who falls into a Shame-like spiral after getting hooked on the stuff that makes even the most clean-cut souls break bad.

Check it out after the jump.
