movie cover

Victor receives a desperate letter from his childhood friend and first love, Roderick Usher. Roderick, a notorious recluse, has not left the grounds of his hilltop mansion in many years. He is in bad health and is in need of Victor's love and care to survive. However, after a series of bizarre and spooky events, Victor realizes that both his friend and the house have a dark past that no one has lived to uncover.

Qvamp says:

While it is great to see DeCoteau finally making his gay movies ... well, gay - I was disappointed by this film. The well-built men in their underpants do show physical attraction to each other, but no actual passion.

The film had good production value, and an attractive cast, but sported poor acting, a weak plot and a surprise ending that failed to engage.

For those new to queer horror who like a little soft core porn with their not-so-scary horror, by all means watch this. But for the rest, there are better things out there.
