And I'm clearly not alone, because a new one is made roughly every 15 minutes. The latest offering is Dead Serious, which one reviewer describes as "what would walk out of the wreckage if an episode of 24 got into a head-on with an episode of Angel and caught an unfortunate Queer as Folk in the crosswalk." Whoa. Can I get a hell yes? Put as simply as possible (which inevitably leaves a whole lot out), the plot involves right-wing terrorists and, um, a vampire taking over a gay bar with "remov[ing] the scourge of homosexuality from the planet" among their goals. Not surprisingly, things don't quite go as planned.
Though the movie doesn't seem likely to be showing up at your local megaplex any time soon, it has shown as a handful of horror and gay film festivals, so tracking it down might not be totally impossible. In the meantime, there's a six minute clip at the website which, assuming you can get it to load (I'm struggling at the moment), should offer a taste of the film's madness. After that, you can either move on to the next vampire flick or start scouring underground festivals for a screening.
