Storyline

The story of two lads from Belfast as they stumble their way through the London gay underworld in search of 'gainful employment'. This being the offering of sexual favors to older gay men in order to subsidize their respective giros. However, when one of the lads accidentally shags a punter to death, they are forced to look for 'work' elsewhere. It is then that they discover the myth of 'The Bread in the Bed' - a huge bed full of money. 'Nine Dead Gay Guys' is the result of the ensuing caper as the lads begin the search for the elusive bed.

refreshingly irreverent in-house gay humour
17 June 2003 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

9 Dead Gay Guys is fast paced - looks and sounds great - and has plenty of intrigue and genuinely funny moments. It's best point is in being totally non-apologetic in basing it's humour firmly on in-house gay and lesbian "lifestyle" scenarios. So there may be plenty of gays and lesbians (without a sense of humour) who will be finding insults galore - and there will also be plenty of straights who miss the point of some of the jokes completely.

I think it's great that a high class product such as this has been made especially for a niche target. Now the big test is whether gay movie-goers give it the support that the film-makers deserve, and whether straight audiences can laugh along with us as we squirm in our seats.

10 stars (screened at Brisbane's Queer Film Festival in April 2003)
