A Classy Little Cult Film

  • Aug 20, 2004
NINE DEAD GAY GUYS is a hoot! Director/Writer Ky Mo Lab has concocted a tale of two Irish lads (Byron played by Brendan Mackey and Kenny played by Glenn Mulhern) who have come to London to find the 'streets paved with gold' and instead find that the only way to support their wayward habits of drinking and bumming off others is to play the gay pub route, making money giving sexual favors in the johns. In this dubious line of work they encounter the subterfuge of London's seamy side and come upon a murder that has to do with 'Queen' (Michael Praed), an Orthodox Jew named Golder's Green (Simon Godley) who is obsessed with 'size'9 (a fact which eventually leads to the path of the man directly and indirectly responsible for the deaths of nine gay guys), and a supporting commedia dell'arte bunch of oddballs. The cast of highly original and hilarious characters includes a Lesbian pub owner Iron Lady (Karen Sharman), a cab driver Dick-Cheese Deepak (Abdala Keserwani), a dwarf (Raymond Griffith), and others. The photography is appropriately smarmy, the sets and production design are some of the best color manipulation you'll find anywhere, the musical score fits the plot, and the use of over titles at the right moments punctuates the comic book atmosphere of the piece. Excellent acting from everyone involved, a spiky and uproariously funny script and a general sense of great British satire make this film about what could be construed to be a shady topic simply an all out good time to watch. And there is even a touch of tenderness at the ending, which makes a major statement about corporal vs. spiritual love. Excellent!
