Sean Patrick Flanery,
Two gay men on a date are murdered the night before Halloween in West Hollywood, California. Eddie and his friends Joey, Chaz and Tobey are going out the following night to the West Hollywood Halloween festival when they encounter the psycho, who sets his eye on them. The killer stalks them through the festival as Chaz parties, Joey chases his jock crush, Tobey tries dressing in drag, and Eddie pursues Jake, the bad boy he wants to get to know better.

The title was selected from an online "name the movie" contest created by the producers to publicize the film. The directior was initially horrorfied at some of the initial submissions, which included such titles as "28 Gays Later", "Boy Meets Knife", and "Queer Eye for the Dead Guy".

Hey. I saw you today. At the tattoo shop? We talked about the murders? Do you remember?
Yeah, I do. I do remember. Eddie, what do you want?
Like to know your name.

You know, it's Halloween. My handcuffs are real.
Right on. Unfortunately you have no gun.

Some may feel that queer cinema was due for a slasher film. But what is the point really? It's no longer enough for me to see a film only because it features attractive men with hot bodies. What about story? Character development? Acting? Are these not important?
The premise of this film is as follows. A psycho killer stalks a group of gay friends on Halloween night. That's it. More frustrating is the fact that at the end, the audience is given no indication as to who the killer is or why he did what he did. Honestly, if these were straight characters, would such an unoriginal film get released or even made for that matter? There wasn't even much humor in the film to make the excessive gore easier to take. I especially disliked the scene in the bathroom where the most likable character was beheaded right after he expressed his happiness about getting a phone number from a guy he liked.
So now we have our gay slasher film. A step forward or a step backward?
