On Saturday, April 13th at Shock Stock 2013 in London, Ontario, attendees at the Q&A with Naomi Grossman (who played Pepper in American Horror Story: Asylum) found themselves confined against their will when Grossman's Q&A was interrupted by legendary sleaze director Joel M. Reed and experimental filmmaker Michael MagGot. Leading the way with a bullhorn, Shock Stock co-organizer Jake Grimbro unleashed Reed and MagGot upon the crowd and barred the exit while Reed and MagGot stormed the stage to announce that they will be collaborating on a new film called Sniff, which Reed calls "the most disgusting picture we could make."

Sniff is about an affluent asshole who hates to pay for anything, even sex. After becoming dissatisfied by frequenting even the cheapest of prostitutes, he discovers that gay men will pay him for sex. However, because he has such a rotten personality, he rubs the gay community the wrong way and they beat the shit out of him. After his beating, this disgusting excuse for a human being discovers that his olfactory senses have increased to the point that he can smell it when someone farts across the street. He develops a new pleasure in perverse scents and disgusting odors. After creeping around men's rooms in search of new and forbidden smells, he eventually finds himself recruited by a group called SNIFF, a secret society of olfactory freaks. They want him to help them find a fabled anus, the greatest asshole in the world -- a butthole called "Vesuvius."
