The sound and film editing in "Secret of ..." are just miserable, just as they are in Fleshapoids, but the Kuchar brothers get extra credit for having gay characters, and they even kiss in this one! This short is included as an extra on the DVD for Sins of the Fleshapoids, but this plot is easier to follow than the main event. Red Grooms, the main character only did one other project after this, but some of the rest of the cast made a bunch of films together. That bedroom scene with all the spectators and antagonists goes on just forever, but you can see the point they were making. This one was more enjoyable to watch than Fleshapoids. I too, bought this after reading an interview with John Waters, where he talks about this one. Mike Kuchar directed this one, but it appears that twin brother George was the more prolific director, starting in the 1950s, and later bringing his students' works to the screen, and continuing right into the 2000s. Acc to wikipedia, there was a documentary released in 2009 called "It Came from Kuchar" describing the lives and works of the Kuchar brothers.
