Title – ‘Baby Jane?‘
Director – William Clift
Starring – Alotta Boutte, J. Conrad Frank, Matthew Martin, Vincent De Paul
Release Date – June 10, 2010
‘You wouldn’t be able to do these awful thing to me if I weren’t still in this chair!’
‘But you *are*, Blanche! You *are* in that chair!’
Ah ‘What Ever Happened to Baby Jane’…One of the undisputed camp classics of the sixties. The ultimate sibling rivalry film follows two sisters one of whom surpasses the other in stardom which leads to intense jealousy and eventually acts of violence. The original film from 1962 utilized two actresses who were also rivals, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford which added to its success with audiences.
‘Baby Jane?‘ a loving homage to the original takes an even more campy approach by casting the two leads as men in drag. With just as many hi-jinks and back-stabbings as the original, ‘Baby Jane?‘ will definitely make you think twice before trusting your crazy siblings!
Watch it with: Your spiritual sisters
Mix it with: A dry martini (but don’t forget to eat din-din first!!)
We love the short film format. Just like a short story, a short film forces the filmmaker to be concise and exact with the tale he or she wants to tell. And while a short film is just that – short, it does not diminish its ability to tell a great story.
So far this week we’ve added two short films to the Dekkoo library that we think you’ll enjoy.
‘The 6 Gays You’ll Date Before You Die‘ is a short that plays like a pseudo-public service announcement. It outlines the six types of guys every man will ultimately date before they finally choose to settle down. It’s hilarious, a bit goofy and sadly, completely accurate!
‘Buddy‘, a short film from The Netherlands (which we absolutely had to have in our library once we saw it), is more dramatic story of two friends, former lovers, who share a scary moment together.
Take a peek at both and consider what elements of the story are purposely excluded in favor of other pieces of information being included and how do those decisions help the humor, drama or action of the story.
Title: Eating Out
Director – Q. Allan Brocka
Starring – Scott Lunsford, Jim Verraros, Emily Stiles, Ryan Carnes
Release Date – February 14, 2004
Q. Allan Brocka is known for writing and directing some of the funniest and sexiest gay cinema in the 2000’s. From ‘Boy Culture‘ to ‘Rick and Steve the Happiest Gay Couple in All the World’ he’s managed to bridge the divide between low-budget film making and a damn funny movie.
He got his big break in 2004 with the now-classic camp comedy ‘Eating Out‘ which went on to become a gay franchise with four sequels! Four! How many other gay films have had that honor? I can’t think of any. Don’t worry, they will all be arriving on Dekkoo in the coming weeks.
‘Eating Out‘ stars Jim Verraros (an openly gay contestant from the first season of American Idol) as Kyle, a young gay boy who’s fallen head over heels for his straight roommate Caleb (how many of you out there have done that before?). He’s also in love with Marc, the mega-hottie gay at school and Gwen, Kyle’s right-hand gal and self-proclaimed bitch who can’t seem to stop dating gay guys. When Kyle pushes Caleb into pretending he’s gay so he can meet Marc things take a turn when Marc falls for Caleb.
But that’s really only a fraction of ‘Eating Out’s’ charms. Starting with the first installment, there’s always an incredibly spectacular (long) sex scene that involves someone remotely telling the participants what to do (don’t forget to use the magic word…). Also included in the price of admission is full frontal nudity, hilarious offensive jokes about the holocaust, and awkward family dynamics!
Watch it with: The biggest group of gay guys you can find and/or a hot date (you two won’t be able to make it past the sex scene without something happening…)
Mix it with: Appletinis!
Since 2010, producer/director J.C. Calciano has been creating Steam Room Stories, a sketch comedy series following gay men at their most candid and confessional while relaxing in the gym sauna. The series has been compiled into three extensive volumes and we’ll be releasing them all over the next few weeks.
Today, we’ve added volume 1 to our library so strip down, grab a towel and get ready for the steamiest gay web series ever made.
Steam Room Stories: Volume 1 is now available on Dekkoo!
Jayson Bend (also known as “Agent 009”) is an openly gay British super spy! Modeled completely after James Bond, he drives fast and plays hard – always with other hot boys. In this truly impressive parody/homage, the first in an on-going series, Jayson teams up with a sexy Swiss counterpart to try and stop the world’s largest global hair salon chain, and their nefarious CEO, from launching a satellite that will threaten the very fate of human existence.
This funny and sexy send-up of Ian Fleming’s iconic character is an instant classic. We can’t wait for more!
Jayson Bend: Queen and Country is now playing!
With Halloween just around the corner we thought we’d kick off the witching season a little early. I Was a Teenage Werebear is a hilarious musical spoof of 1950s and 60s drive-in flicks with a perfect dash of campy horror fun that is perfect for the season.
When closeted new kid Ricky O’Reilly (played by Sean Paul Lockhart better know as beloved adult film superstar Brent Corrigan) falls for Malibu High’s mysterious bad boy Talon (Anton Troy) love bites them on the ass as the two transform into bestial, leather daddy werebears!
We’ve included a ton of extras including deleted scenes and a making of featurette so be sure to check out all of the extras available with this great addition to the Dekkoo library.
