Indie queer cinema is not dead! Drag, drinking, dead bodies in dumpsters. Check out this ode to John Waters.
Now, from Dark Star Pictures comes the queer horror flick you needed to see some time between now and Halloween — Death Drop Gorgeous! A dejected bartender and an aging drag queen fight to survive the eccentric and hostile nightlife of a corrupt city, as a masked maniac slaughters young gay men and drains them of blood.
An ode to the wicked work of John Waters, festival fave Death Drop Gorgeous – the dark horse hit of Seattle Queer, Chicago Horror, Wicked Queer, VideoScream and over 20 more festivals worldwide – features divine work by directors Michael J. Ahern, Christopher Dalpe, Brandon Perras-Sanchez, and a superlative cast headed by Wayne Gonsalves, Payton St. James, Brandon Perras-Sanchez, and Christopher Dalpe.
“Best enjoyed with a drink in hand and a smear of lipstick across your face,” according to reviewers at The AV Club.
Death Drop Gorgeous is available on VOD and in selected theaters now.
