Bottom of the barrel drive-in movie, 1 September 2006
Author: Wayne Malin (wwaayynnee51@hotmail.com) from United States

Teenager Bobby Douglas (Stephen White) is abused at home and runs away. He is picked up by a gay man and raped by him and his friends. They leave him by the side of the road--bruised and unconscious. A friendly Satanic cult (!!!) pick him up and bring him to their place to heal. But then they think he might be gay and Satanists hate gays and lesbians (???). It leads to an ending that was just laughable.

Wow--what a TERRIBLE film! The plot is (to be nice) pretty stupid and homophobic. As a gay man I have no tolerance for homophobia and if this were a GOOD movie I'd be bothered--but it's not. Also the rape scene in the car is so obviously faked it's hard to take seriously. And since when are Satanic cults homophobic? Let's see--it's OK to worship the Devil but you can't be gay? Right. Also White spends a large part of the film running around in his underpants. So--the film comes out against gays yet throws homo erotic images in our face. That's so pathetic it boggles the mind.

That aside the acting is terrible. Every actor seems to pause before saying his lines and there are long pauses in between sentence. If they cut those out this movie would be much shorter. Hard to say who's the worst actor here--they're all pretty terrible. It's poorly directed with many technical problems--some scenes were so dark I couldn't tell what was going on. Cheap sets too.

This is almost bad and offensive enough to be good--almost. Basically a boring, stupid and offensive film. I give this a well-deserved 1.
