3.0 out of 5 stars Low Budget Predictable Gay Horror., 27 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Into The Lions Den [DVD] (DVD)
This is the story of three gay friends from West Hollywood who having grown bored with all that sun shine and happy laid back people have decided to take a road trip to the Big Apple. Along the way they want to get a flavour of the country they are passing through. The 38 years old guy of the bunch is Johnny (Jesse Archer - `Going Down in La La Land') has a mobile positioning device that lets him know where all available action is en route and so wants to get a bit more `flavour' than most.

Anyway they end up in Nowherseville at a crummy motel but Johnny wants to go to a low rent dive called `The Lion's Den', (now you get the title)it's the sort of place where dust goes to die and the in house singer - `The Mouth of the South', should be on that X Factor show, just to be humiliated with her truly appalling vocals - and she was dubbed!

Anyway there are a few scuffles and Michael ( played rather well by Ronnie Kroell - `Eating Out Drama Camp') and Ted decide to leave, but alone at the bar things don't go so nicely for Johnny as he finally gets a bit of `flavour' but it was far from what he wanted to sample. What happens next is the inevitable `horror'. Actually the themes are horrible but in many aspects it is far from being horrific. It is comedic in places, some issues are dealt with but it is all a bit predictable, no one will be gasping at a sudden plot shift and the production values are a bit - `oh dear' at times too. The acting varies in quality as does the sound and I am not going to bother with ropey lighting as I have seen far worse, but is still inexcusable. And there are some plot holes or moreover people doing stupid things that will always end in disaster type scenarios, which I find yawn worthy at best.

All that said I still watched the full 82 minutes and felt it was an OK film and a reasonable way to pass the time but not one for a second viewing at all, as I said there are a lot worse films out there but like wise this could have been a fair bit better.
