Who knew tricking could be so creepy?
26 August 2004 | by MonauralSee all my reviews

A creepy look at two defining (and equally terrifying) concepts for many gay men: Tricking and TURNING THIRTY! All kidding aside, this is a great short film, combining some good acting and a number of horror standards into a ghoulish example of gay horror, a field that has too long gone unrepresented. As a short film it manages to give adequate back-story without slowing itself down, jumping into the action after an appropriate build-up of tension. The production has a shoe-string look to it, which does not in any way impact the story itself, and some of the spookier moments are actually amplified by this look. Don't expect to see any amazing special effects, just some good make-up work and clean direction! I watched a screening of this movie in West Hollywood and everyone there had a good time watching this one!
