Make Room for Daddy

Colin McCormack (BearCity star Gerald McCullouch) thinks he has it all – a great job, a steady stream of hot younger guys, and a best friend (Dan Via) whose devotion he takes for granted. But when a charming and mercurial intern (Jaime Cepero) sweeps him off his feet, Colin sees a chance for something more: A family of his own. What he discovers instead is a shattering secret that may cost Colin everything – and everyone – he holds dear.

By turns funny, heartbreaking and hopeful, Daddy explores the universal need for love and connection, and the evolving understanding of “family” in today’s rapidly changing world.

Following a buzz-heavy world premiere in New York and an extended run in Los Angeles, the critical smash play by actor Dan Via became this big screen adaptation, directed by star Gerald McCullouch and co-starring the original creator himself.

Daddy is now available on Dekkoo.

Another Derek Jarman classic comes to Dekkoo

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio (1573-1610) was the last, perhaps the greatest, and certainly the most controversial painter of the Italian Renaissance. The late great Derek Jarman’s stylishly bold tribute to the violative artist features Nigel Terry as Caravaggio, a bad-boy of Italian aristocracy who scandalized the established order with his faintly erotic paintings of often naked saints modeled by prostitutes and street urchins.

Jarman portrays Caravaggio as a man of intense passions – artistically, emotionally and physically – who was also bisexual, with a taste for “rough trade.” Sean Bean, long before his turn as Ned Stark on “Game of Thrones,” co-stars as the bisexual Ranuccio, the artist’s rugged lover. Jarman’s regular muse, the incomparable Tilda Swinton, is also on hand as Lena, the beautiful mistress who comes between these two men.

A quirky yet elegant film, blending anachronistic playfulness (a technique Jarman would use again in Edward II, also available now on Dekkoo) with a touching homoerotic love story, spectacular camera work and a complex, impressionistic feel, Caravaggio is a unique cinematic pleasure. Jarman spent seven years preparing for the film. When the actual production began, he made it in only five weeks – all in one single warehouse at the East End of London.

You can watch Caravaggio now on Dekkoo – and make sure to check out Edward II as well.

9 Gay Films to Watch This Halloween

If you’re anything like us, you enjoy a good scary movie during the month of October. Dekkoo has plenty of options that will satisfy your spooky seasonal needs, but we narrowed down the selection process to highlight these nine flicks worthy of Halloween viewing.

Still from Alpha Delta Zatan

Alpha Delta Zatan

Starring an all-male cast of hotties, this low-budget homoerotic slasher flick offers up a fun, sensual spin on the “sorority massacre” sub-genre. A goofy but noble college kid is surprised when he’s invited to join his school’s most exclusive frat house… until he comes face to face with a masked psychopath who is picking off all of the half-naked muscle boys one by one.

Still from Bite Marks

Bite Marks

While backpacking across the country, bickering gay couple Cary and Vogel decide to speed up their trek by hitchhiking. Bad idea, right? Brewster, a sexually-confused trucker, picks the pair up on his way to deliver a shipment of coffins. After a few strokes of bad luck (and some others kinds of strokes), the mismatched trio ends up lost and broken down in an abandoned junkyard with five bloodthirsty vampires on the loose.

BlackBriefs_CollectionArt

Black Briefs

We’re cheating a little with this one as Black Briefs isn’t really a feature film, but a collection – featuring six different award-winning short films with suspenseful story lines and themes. This compilations aims to entertain and chill your bones in equal measure. Included here are the shorts Communication, Promise, Remission, Spring, Video Night and Winner Takes All. Some are sexy, some are spooky, all are appropriate for a chilly Autumn night in front of the TV.

Still from A Closer Walk with Thee

A Closer Walk with Thee

Intense and deliciously homoerotic, this award-winning new thriller follows Jordan, a strange young Christian missionary who gets caught watching his handsome and equally young Pastor take a shower. Disturbed by these “sinful” urges, Pastor Eli becomes convinced that Jordan is under the influence of a demonic force. The two men get unusually close as an amateur, bizarrely erotic exorcism soon begins.

Still from In a Glass Cage

In a Glass Cage

In the aftermath of WWII, a former Nazi doctor and child molester – this is a REALLY bad dude – finds himself confined to an iron lung following a failed suicide attempt. Things get even worse when a mysterious, handsome young man, hired to be his caretaker, is discovered to be hellbent on revenge. An uncompromising psycho-sexual drama that’s erotic, painful and terrifying in equal measure, In a Glass Cage is a highly controversial classic. Certainly not for the squeamish.

The Lost Coast

The Lost Coast

As a group of old high school friends wander through the streets of San Francisco on Halloween night, two of them are forced to confront their unspoken sexual history. Unlike the other films on this list, there’s nothing about The Lost Coast that dips into the horror genre, but it gives you a good Halloween-ey vibe nonetheless. Writer-director Gabriel Fleming’s debut film is a beautifully rendered story of reunion, desire and regret.

Still from Rift

Rift

Months after they broke up, Gunnar receives a strange phone call from his ex-boyfriend, Einar. He sounds distraught, like he’s about to do something terrible to himself. Gunnar drives up to the secluded cabin where Einar is holed up and soon discovers that there’s more going on than he imagined. The two men seem to be alone, but there’s some kind of supernatural force just beyond the walls that’s looking to get inside with them.

Still from Vampire Boys

Vampire Boys

Jasin and his vampire brood’s time is running out. In order for them to survive, Jasin needs to find a mortal to turn into a vampire. It’s sort of like finding a husband… but for all of eternity. Luckily, a fresh-faced young lad named Caleb seems to be just what the witch doctor ordered. The cast is packed with cuties in this gay, low-budget indie in the vampire-romance vein of Twilight. Vampire Boys 2: The New Brood is also streaming now on Dekkoo.

Still from The Year I Lost My Mind

The Year I Lost My Mind

After encountering him during a burglary, Tom begins stalking and antagonizing the attractive young Lars. When Lars finds out about Tom’s intentions, he manages to turn the tables on him, leading to a shocking confrontation. With something of a Single White Female vibe (with ridiculously attractive men swapped in for the leads), The Year I Lost My Mind is a sexy mind-fuck of a thriller from Germany.
