Just Came Out: Hooked

A feature film created to support homeless LGBT youth charities, Hooked, the newest project from actor-writer-director-producer-novelist Max Emerson, partnered with numerous charities and outreaches, including The Albert Kennedy Trust in the United Kingdom, The Ali Forney Center in New York City, The Los Angeles LGBT Center and Lost-N-Found in Atlanta.

 

We first meet Jack (Conor Donnally), a homeless hustler with a smart mouth and impulsive tendencies, in New York City, turning tricks on the evening before his eighteenth birthday. He spends most of his time in a world of often abusive, but affluent, eccentrics. His only ally is his boyfriend Tom (Sean Ormond). They live together in a shelter, but their safety there is compromised by the threat of Tom’s father finding them.

Black Briefs

2012, United States

Curated by prolific writer/director Rob Williams (Make the Yuletide GayShared Rooms) for his distribution label Guest House Films, Black Briefs features six award-winning short films with pretty dark, horror or horror-adjacent stories and themes. When it comes to short film compilations, there is always something to recommend. If you don’t like the first one, chances are good there is a short just around the corner that you’re going to appreciate more. In Black Briefs, we really like Hong Khaou‘s steamy Spring, about a young man meets up with a stranger for a little exploratory sadomasochistic sex; and Jack Plotnick‘s Video Night, in which a group of filmmaker buddies discover something unexpected in their raw footage. Our favorite, though, is Greg Ivan Smith‘s Remission. A man, all alone in a secluded cabin awaiting the results of a serious medical test, is haunted by a terrifying presence. It’s genuinely chilling and it’s one of those rare movies that can create dread and unease even in its scenes set during the daytime.

Just Came Out: Boy Undone

If you’re at work right now, make sure no one is looking over your shoulder. The trailer and pics below, all from writer/director Leopoldo Laborde‘s new film Boy Undone, are pretty hot and heavy.

 

Two young men spend the night together after meeting the previous evening in a notorious gay club. The next day, however, the host wakes to find the boy he picked up bewildered and confused, unable to remember his name or anything about his past. Lacking any type of identification or obvious clues, the boys begin to search for the truth among fragments of memories that may or may not prove reliable. A chilling homoerotic thriller, Boy Undone is queer guerrilla filmmaking at its most intense.

Chemsex

2015, United Kingdom

Through hidden basements, bedrooms and bars across London, Chemsex frankly and intimately exposes a dark side to modern gay life. Traversing an underworld of intravenous drug use and weekend-long sex parties, this stunning documentary tells the story of several men struggling to make it out of “the scene” alive – and one health worker who has made it his mission to save them. While society looks the other way, this powerful and unflinching film uncovers a group of men battling HIV and drug addiction while trying to find acceptance in a changing world.

Eating Out: Drama Camp

2011, United States

Drama Camp, the fourth film in the beloved Eating Out series, is packed with laughs, smarts and plenty of full-frontal nudity. Zack and Casey (Chris Salvatore and Daniel Skelton) find that their relationship is in a slump, but things are about to change this summer at “Dick Dickey’s Drama Camp”! When Zack meets Benji (Aaron Milo) there is an instant connection. However, not wanting to interfere with Zack’s current relationship, Benji pretends to be straight. When Benji and Zack get cast as lovers in an updated, sexed-up version of ‘The Taming of the Shrew’, their self-restraint is put to the test. And when the sparks start to fly, Casey’s trusted friend Penny (Lilach Mendelovich) takes matters into her own hands by setting a poison oak trap for Benji so that Casey can step in as Benji’s understudy. But when Beau (Ronnie Kroell) starts crushing on Casey, Casey wonders if he and Zack are really meant to be together after all. Introducing a diverse ensemble of characters, Eating Out: Drama Camp is an over-the-top, deliberately raunchy sex comedy with the heart and soul of a sweet summer romance.
