Storyline

Daringly unique and sexy, Over the Edge is a wild trip through the dark side of gay cinema. Med-school dropout Jason is in a funk. Working as a photocopier repair-man he can't bear the thought of leaving the house, let alone going to hid mundane job. As he becomes increasingly isolated, losing sense of time and perspective, he begins to have blackouts. Intriguingly, as the blackouts become more frequent so too do the discovery of murdered men and women all over town. Confused, he enlists the help of co-worker Richard who also happens to be the object of his unconsummated affection aim to unravel these mysterious deaths. Full of eccentric British flair and ever-building sexual tension Over the Edge is a true, one-of-a-kind thriller. Written by Anonymous

Oh dear.
29 August 2011 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I rented this film, thank God I didn't purchase it as I would want a refund. It is filmed very amateurishly, the script is dire & the plot beggars belief.

There is a serial killer on the loose. Richard comes round to Jason's flat to fix up his DVD player & when he gets there he learns that there is a dead body in Jason's bed, but Richard isn't alarmed because he is too busy making goo goo eyes at Jason. But is Jason really the killer?

This film had such potential, but when it becomes clear quite quickly that it appears to be more like a spoof than anything else, I soon lost interest. There are some deleted scenes on the DVD with introductions from the director who was clearly deluded, he speaks as if he was making a masterpiece.

I would have given the film 1 star but I quite liked the charisma of Danny Bedford's performance.
