Sneak Peek! Beset By Demons: The Lou Perryman Story Directed by Kim Henkel (co-writer of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre 1974) and Brian Huberman (associate professor of film at Rice University) – Lou Perryman was a big man with a big heart, and big appetites. He loved life, both its bright lights and its dark underbelly. He was a veteran, a factory worker, assistant cameraman, an actor of considerable talent, gourmand, lover of women, long-time cabbie, a devoted father, and a convicted felon. This film attempts to uncover some perspective on a life that was in many respects quite ordinary—but in others was a grand, quintessentially American adventure. Followed by a Q&A with the directors.
