If you gotta see a sexually graphic gay zombie movie....
7 February 2019 | by dfranzen70See all my reviews

...this might be the only one you come across. Well now, anyway, since I've pointed it out. Very low (or no) budget is about a young man who's definitely most sincerely undead, so naturally he auditions for a movie about an undead young man. Yeah. Only no one thinks he's actually undead, just, you know, weird.
