GAY FOR SLAY

Take West Hollywood, add a dash of Hitchcock, Gale Harold from Queer As Folk and Shangela from Drag Race and you have a killer new thriller from director Casper Andreas. He tells Jesse Archer about his whodunit Kiss Me Kill Me and the challenges of independent filmmaking.

Congratulations on Kiss Me Kill Me, which premiered at Chicago’s Reeling Film Festival.

How was the reaction?

Casper Andreas: Great! A sold out screening and lots of love. It’s a movie made to entertain and I think we were successful.

So how many people get killed? How many kissed? I don’t want to give away the exact number, but I can tell you more people get killed than kissed. It’s that kind of story.

Give us your 10 second plot pitch. While confronting his unfaithful boyfriend, Dusty blacks out. When he comes to, his boyfriend has been murdered and he’s the prime suspect.

Who really killed his boyfriend? The butler.

Fine. Who are the suspects? Everybody. The boyfriend. The secret lover. The best friend. The psychiatrist. The attorney. The drag queen. Nobody is exactly who they seem.

How did writer David Michael Barrett come up with the story? What was the germ? David joined his love of Hitchcock-style thrillers with life in West Hollywood. LA is a magnet for cute young guys angling to become rich and famous, either as TV stars or reality stars, or by marrying well. For every successful gay producer in town, there seems to be an endless group of hot young guys all competing for his attention. It occurred to David that the idea of them all turning on each other would be really fun! So you could say that the film is a heightened depiction of WeHo, but it is based on reality.
