Very cool spin on vampires, with a gay twist. (Hold the lemon).
I saw Scab at the gay & lesbian film festival here in Chicago. I was very surprised since I didn't really know what to expect. My first thoughts were that it was going to be a vampire horror slasher film, but it wasn't. Not in a bad way, though. It's really a drama with some dark humor (and a couple of hot guys, which isn't a bad thing at all).
The film about a Hollywood gay guy who gets 'infected' and becomes a vampire and takes his best friends to Vegas to get away from all of the drama. When there, the situation gets worse, people die, sex is had, and skin is shown. There are a few kooky characters thrown into the mix, but not in too jarring a way. I was impressed with the sound and the score, which for an indy film were pretty good.
I noticed that the filmmakers cast some gay porn stars to play 'victims'. You can definitely tell with a couple of them (Cody Cash especially), that they aren't professional actors, it doesn't hurt the scenes too much and the rest of the actors more than make up for them.
I've seen lots and lots of gay cinema and it's always cool to see something that tries to do it a little differently and isn't the usual fare. While this film has its shortcomings and could have been paced a little better, I would recommend it and spread the word.
