Big Gay Horror Fan has always had a hard time making up his mind. For years it was because a caravan of bald nuns in blue leather thigh highs controlled his every thought, but recently it has been because there is just so much cool stuff to see and do that he doesn’t know where to start.
On May 31st, writer and director John Borowski is raising funds for his latest true life horror documentary by showing his acclaimed double feature, H.H. Holmes: America’s First Serial Killer and Albert Fish: In Sin He Found Salvation. The event begins at 7:30 at the historic Portage Theater in Chicago. More information can be excavated by visiting http://www.facebook.com/#!/events/135559819911254/ or www.johnborowski.com.
For all those strolling through the maimed bodies that litter the streets of Forest Park IL – make sure to stop in at the bloody elegant Centuries and Sleuths Bookstore on 7419 W. Madison Street. Yes, the store features detective fiction and murder mysteries galore, but there is also a great gothic young adult section, a zombie coloring book available and some steam punk offerings, as well. Staff member Lynda Fitzgerald is knowledgably friendly, too! And for those with a great fear of the Midwest, but a strong desire for that graphic novelization of the Clue board game (is there such a thing?) – Centuries and Sleuths can always be found online at www.centuriesandsleuths.com, as well.
Then, once you’ve purchased your books on cannibalistic jailbait murderers you may just be ready for Random Films’ outrageous Kill Cecile Volume One. Featuring the fabulous Rodney Horn echoing Lynda Day George’s Pieces‘ freak-out, the adorable Bo Adkins as Corey, a psychotic killer and a disgustingly hilarious sequence that brings new meaning to caring for your pets, writer-director Brian Dorton definitely delivers the wig stained goods here.

Two lesbians discover that there is more to the nighttime than some late loving in Luther Blogal-Jones creepy Creak (www.vimeo.com/fasterproductions). Who hasn’t thought someone was standing in the tiny hallway of their studio apartment at one time or another? (Besides BGHF, that is, who actually PAID for his stalker!) You can keep up with Blogal-Jones at http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Sincerely-Psychopath/343362982343983 and www.fasterproductions.blogspot.com.
Meanwhile, eternal BGHF fave Lori Cardille is appearing in Scott Goldberg’s powerful short The Three. The Three is available, online, for free until September 1st at http://www.TheThreeFilm.com/. Featuring powerful images and passionate performances from the always gorgeous Cardille and John Amplas, The Three is definitely worth a look.
After all that, I am totally worn out – so, until next time –
Sweet love and pink Grue, Big Gay Horror Fan!
