gay thriller porn? or a gay porn thriller?
21 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now we know that being a murder suspect can be yet another opportunity to land a piece of ass. If only "Skinemax" could offer us gay boys something like this.

The difference between Open Cam and a porno is that pornos usually have less blood, better acting, and a few more sex scenes. It offers moments of unintentional-but- hysterical camp, and Amir Darvish was often impressive as Detective Hamilton. But the rest of the cast, including it's lead character, Andreau Thomas, come across as community-theatre-amateurs. In the case of Thomas, a community-theatre-amateur who is oh-so-eager to bare his sculpted, sexy bubble-butt for half of the time he's on the screen. silly, stupid, smut.
