American Translation

2011, France

Directors: Pascal Arnold & Jean-Marc Barr

A sexually ambiguous Frenchman tours his native countryside with his naive American lover in pursuit of the ultimate thrill. From the moment they meet, brooding Chris (Pierre Perrier – holy fuck… what a hottie) and the beautiful Aurore (Lizzie Brochere) fall instantly and passionately in love… but it’s not long before their intense connection is consumed by Chris’s dark obsession with gay men. Before long, the pair embarks on a violent and sexual journey filled with the seduction and destruction of young gay hustlers. This one might be harder to watch than most. It’s easy to see why men would be instantly attracted to Chris and follow him just about anywhere. It’s not as easy to watch him take advantage of them and ultimately murder them. American Translation is twisted and often bone-chilling, but it’s also wildly sexy at times. Mixed signals, we know. Just don’t say we didn’t warn you.

B&B

2017, Great Britain

Director: Joe Ahearne

“They made their bed… now they’ll have to die in it.” B&B earned a whole lot of praise from LGBT horror/thriller/suspense fans at festivals and now it’s available to watch at TLAgay! Lovers Marc and Fred (Tom Bateman and Sean Teale) initiated a major legal battle after they were refused a double bed at a remote Christian guest house. They came out of their court case victorious and now they’re back at the establishment to claim their conjugal rights. Triumph, however, quickly turns to terror when a scary Russian neo-Nazi also checks in. Their weekend of celebratory fun soon becomes a bloody battle for survival. B&B is a whip-smart and brutally funny dark comedy-thriller that has been earning rave reviews from critics – some of whom have even compared it to the work of Alfred Hitchcock. The Hollywood Outsiders, specifically, called it “a film Alfred Hitchcock would be proud of.” The Horror Society said it’s “frickin’ fantastic and a trailblazer for LGBT cinema.”

Bloody Knuckles

2014, Canada

Canada, our well-heeled neighbor to the north, is not known for cinematic carnage or gore comedies, but first time director Matt O. aims to shake things up with Bloody Knuckles, a deliriously offensive, gory and happily un-PC horror-comedy. Travis (Adam Boys), an underground comic book artist with a penchant for obscene caricatures, upsets a thin-skinned crime lord, who responds by cutting off the young mans hand. A despondent and now alcoholic Travis wallows in post-severed hand depression. Will criminality reign supreme? Will Travis give up his acerbic pen and live alone as a bitter one-handed man? Not if the slightly rotted hand, now alive and determined to exact revenge, teems up with his former body and a masked, S&M-loving gay superhero to rid the city of evil!

Death in Buenos Aires

2014, Argentina

A big hit in Argentina, where it was filmed, Death in Buenos Aires is a gripping police thriller about corruption, paranoia, and the secret gay lives of the wealthy elite of Buenos Aires during the politically tumultuous 1980s. At the scene of a murder of one of the city’s high society figures, veteran police inspector Chavez (Demian Bichir) runs into Gomez (Chino Darin), a.k.a. El Ganso (The Goose), a handsome young rookie cop with dreams of advancement. When Chavez discovers that the murder may be linked to a small-time hustler, and the gay nightclub La Manila, the detective sends the rookie undercover to pose as a newcomer on the prowl for an older benefactor. As they come close to luring out the killer, the erotic charge of their new surroundings triggers changes in both Chavez and Gomez. Director Natalia Meta‘s deeply involving debut film delivers rich, multi-faceted characters that match the complexity of its riveting story.

Der Samurai

2014, Germany

Jakob (Michel Diercks) is a policeman in a village deep in the woods, where little happens… until the arrival of a mysterious wolf that is causing havoc. Working the night shift, Jakob is tracking the wolf, only to discover that the lupine lurker is actually a man clad only in lipstick and a ladies’ slip – and toting a samurai sword that he uses to lop off the heads of the townspeople, including Jakob’s tormentors. Jakob and the transvestite samurai seem to share a bond, and as the night gets darker, events get even weirder. Unlike any other horror film you’re likely to see, Der Samurai is a German mind-bender about shape-shifting cross-dressers, bloody decapitations, repressed sexual desires and small town life. It’s a surreal mix of dark comedy and eerie creep-out fun that recalls David Lynch and pays homage to, while often improving upon, the synth-soundtrack-packed horror classics of the 80s. Check it out and get your Halloween viewing started early!

Al Berto

2017, Portugal

It’s 1975 and the winds of change are blowing over post-revolutionary Portugal. Al Berto (Ricardo Teixera) returns to his small village after spending several years away in Brussels, where he trained as a painter. Settling illegally in a mansion that had been expropriated from his family during the revolution, young Al Berto begins to hang out with locals – who seem to share his interest in the arts and his dream of a different life. Among them is the handsome Joao Maria (Jose Pimentao), who quickly finds himself falling for Al Berto’s charm. Soon the young man begins forming his own counter-culture revolution – one that bewitches the town’s youth, but proves deeply threatening to the ideals of the conservative locals. Colorful, sexy, provocative and deeply political, Al Berto is an expertly-made period piece.
