I truly believe this movie brings gay cinema to a new level. It moves the genre away from the same "coming out/coming of age" and HIV/AIDS story lines that have defined gay movies since their inception and takes viewers into the realm of gay men living their lives just like everyone else (to the extent they can when a serial killer is one the loose!).
We all know coming out is hard and it plays a central role in gay men's lives. And HIV/AIDS has defined a generation of gay men since the 80s. But coming out is a brief moment in the lives of gay men and HIV/AIDS has become everyone's problem not just gay men.
What about falling in love, getting married (that's legal in MA now, ya know!), having children, getting chased around by obsessive serial killers, and growing old? This movie boldly does just that. It makes no excuses about the choices people have made in their lives. It accepts them and moves on with the story at hand - killing people!
