When I was young so very long ago, we'd all pile into the car and head down to the movies, but we never left the parking lot once we got there. The parking lot was the theater, with tinny sound and a monstrous screen. You'd watch beach movies and monster movies. The bully always got what was coming to him, and the captain of the sports team always got the girl. He certainly never got the boy.
Tim Sullivan loves those old horror films, bad special effects and all. And so he's gotten his friends together to create Chillerama, an homage to those goofy, bloody films of our past, presented in four parts. It's for a mainstream audience, but with a twist - one of those four parts is incredibly gay.
I Was A Teenage Werebear premiered last month in Hawaii, but it gets its first major outing next week at the Frameline Film Festival in San Francisco. Just how gay is it? It stars Sean Paul Lockhart aka Brent Corrigan, as a singing, dancing teen who's just not that into his sexually liberated bobby sock and poodle skirt girlfriend, but gets really heated by the bad boy in the leather jacket. After a bite on his shapely behind, he transforms into a muscle werebear every time he gets turned on.
