The Whites


Here at Zombie Popcorn, we are always talking about loading up the car with our gear and hitting the road to interview people.  I guess, because this dream is deep in our hearts we hold a very special place for movies that do interview and dig deep into the lives of people.

There is a new DVD out called Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia. [singlepic id=1456 w=320 h=240 float=right]

From executive producers Johnny Knoxville and Jeff Tremaine (Jackass) comes a shocking and outlandish year-in-the-life documentary about the White Family of Boone County, West Virginia’s most notorious and surly family.

Shoot-outs, robberies, gas-huffing, drug dealing, pill popping, murders and tap dancing. Nestled deep in the Appalachian Mountains, the White family lives an existence more like something from the Wild West than modern-day suburbified America. The legendary family is as known for their wild, excessive criminal ways as they are for their famous mountain dancing members, including Jesco White, the star of the cult classic documentary Dancing Outlaw. The film follows the Whites over the course of one tumultuous year, as they deal with a stabbing, criminal sentencing, attempted murder, death and birth. Never dull, THE WILD AND WONDERFUL WHITES OF WEST VIRGINIA are ‘the Hatfields and McCoys all rolled into one’ (New York Magazine).
