What do you get if you cross Battle Royale with The Purge, and sprinkle in a healthy dose of James Gunn’s extremely weird, dark sense of humour?

The Belko Experiment, the latest release from low-budget horror label Blumhouse Productions, may not reach the cult heights of either of those comparisons, but it’s a rollickingly entertaining, gory ride that’ll please horror and B-Movie fans alike.

The set-up is typically ridiculous – a bunch of American employees working at a remote tower block in Columbia are confused to find themselves locked in the building. They’re soon told over the intercom that they have to kill two of their sta., or else more will be murdered at random. The threat is followed through with and then given a more startling ultimatum – kill 30 within two hours, or 60 will die. Cue murderous panic, hierarchical 1% vs 99% Wall Street parables, and all manner of darkly humoured carnage.

About Gay Times

It’s been 25 years since the National Theatre first staged Angels in America - the most important play to come out of the 20th century. In our world-exclusive interview and shoot with the cast of Angels in America, debuting at the National Theatre this July, we discuss the political and cultural parallels between then and now, the evergreen relevance of Angels in America and the importance of coming out and living with pride. Elsewhere, TOWIE’s Charlie King, who is also our resident fitness guru, gets you festival ready with a focus on upper body workouts, and James Haskell, former Gay Times cover star and international rugby icon, takes us through the new fitness craze, F45. Also, gay sex in Karachi, Pakistan's largest city; Steps take us through their 'gay-tastic' new album; homophobia in football; men who make money from men they barely know; Lucie Jones sticks her hand in our sweetie jar; Romy and Michele turns 20; Megan Mullaly on Karen Walker; and Todrick Hall on Broadway. The issue is packed - as usual - with opinion, travel, style and fitness.
