Filming took over two years and started just a few weeks after the plot was pitched to the producers. The writer/director took a crew to the annual West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval to shoot B-roll footage that would be cut into the film, without knowing what the story would actually be. The crew returned to the same event the following year, this time with actors and a completed script, to film the rest of the movie. See more »

I was fortunate enough to see a screening at Frameline's Gay and Lesbian film festival, and the audience went nuts. From the moment the lights went down this film kept the sold out crowd on the edge of their seats.
The story follows a group of friends in West Hollywood at a Halloween gathering, and is well written with some predictable yet well executed plot twists. The expected gore is also well done - just enough to keep you clutching at the arm rests! You can really tell that the writer/director is an avid fan of the genre, and that is what makes it great for the rest of us as well.
More importantly, it gives the queer audiences something of our own to relate to, after years of watching "Jamie Lee Curtis" et-al running from the likes of Jason, Freddy and Mike Myers. All I can say is it's about time!
