Storyline

In a small town in 1967, plucky young sissy Phillip is about to celebrate his birthday at the beach cottage owned by his best friend Stan. All of Phillip's friends are gathered for the festivities, including Stan's hunky-but-impulsive boyfriend Billy, Billy's shy, nerdy cousin Joseph, and Randall, the chain-smoking, bitter queen of the bunch. Meanwhile, a horde of libidinous gay men - turned into ravenous flesh-eating zombies by toxic mosquitoes at a cruisy highway rest stop - are making their way towards our oblivious celebrants, eating every man in their path. With body parts washing up on shore and party guests disappearing, our heroes must find a way to stop the zombie onslaught. Will Stan keep the rotting corpses out of his spotless home? Will Joseph work up the courage to declare his love for Phillip? Will Billy keep it in his pants long enough to stay alive? Will Phillip's cheating boyfriend make it to the party - and if so, will he be there to save them, or to eat them? No one... Written by Anonymous

Decent, campy fun!
28 November 2005 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

CREATURES FROM THE PINK LAGOON, is a goofy send up of 50's monster movies, that gloriously and at times hilariously sends up every gay stereotype abound. Judy Garland, sex toys, butch/femme dynamics, etc. This film embraces those stereotypes, in a loving and sly way, and its those things, plus a variety of stock character types, and Ed Wood nods (giant monster mosquitoes, gloriously low key set pieces) that keep this piece at a high click. Where CREATURES suffers is when it decides to incorporate its gory violent moments. I love gory movies, but the films tone shifts so dramatically, that you forget at times you're watching a parody and send up, and it just turns into a painfully bad gore zombie movie. Luckily for us, the able cast of theatre veterans go for the gusto, and manage to chew the necessary scenery required to save the film from falling into this pit. The final issue will be the video format, a good run through a film look process could only enhance the film's above average lensing, and give it a much needed authentic feel.

For fans of 50's queer satire, this will provide more laughs than disappointing fare like Straight Jacket, and signals an interesting new voice amongst queer filmmakers.
