FIRST ALL GAY SLASHER MOVIE

What is being claimed as the first ?all-gay horror film? recently wrapped production in Los Angeles. The currently untitled film stars Dylan Fergus, Bryan (THE REAL WORLD) Kirkwood, Hank (PUMPKIN) Harris, Matt Phillips and Andrew (PSYCHO BEACH PARTY) Levitas and is directed by newcomer Paul Etheredge-Ouzts.

?This is the first film of its kind,? producer Steven (CIRCUIT) Wolfe tells Fango, not counting the various lesbian vampire films and hardcore flicks. ?[This] is not just a horror film with gay characters, but a horror film where all the primary characters are gay. What attracted me to the idea of developing this project was the lack of gay-themed films out there that are non-issue-related. This is simply a horror film that follows the standard genre formula, like a SCREAM kind of film. The twist is that all the lead characters are gay.?

Director Etheredge-Ouzts gave Fango the scoop on the plot: ?On Halloween morning in a West Hollywood park, two guys? makeout session is interrupted by a serial killer with a fondness for severed heads. Later that night, a group of gay kids celebrate the holiday with a visit to the site of the murders. Unfortunately for the boys, the killer never left the murder scene. After a close encounter with the slasher in the woods, the friends escape to the West Hollywood Halloween Carnival. There, the guys search for the simple pleasures of youth?drugs, booze and boyfriends?unaware that the shadowy killer stalks them through the street party crowds. The boys have to fight to keep their lives and their heads,? with makeup FX by Justin Raleigh.

?To my knowledge, we?ve made the first gay slasher film,? Etheredge-Ouzts continues. ?In writing and directing the film, I felt a responsibility to set a high bar for any future gay horror films. I wanted the film to exceed what the target audience expects to see?another tired slasher-movie parody. My challenge to myself was: ?Don?t give in to the formula! Turn the slasher conventions on their heads!? I used the genre?s stock female victims?the ing?e, the sexual dynamo, the prude?and tried to create gay male characters who are dimensional, believable and, I hope, appealing, even to a mainstream audience.?

Producer Wolfe and his Sneak Preview Entertainment company will be shopping the film around to distributors once postproduction finishes in the months ahead. The company also has other gay-themed horror films in the works.
