WE WERE PROVIDED with only the first 17 minutes of Dan Lantz’s thriller, which stars Ronnie Kroell and is getting its World Premiere at this year’s festival. But that 17 minutes made us want to see the rest. There’s no telling where the story — about three gay friends who encounter trouble in a redneck bar — was headed. But we’re going to take a wild guess that things get pretty ugly for our trio. This one’s a gamble — but based on the first few minutes, it’s a gamble we’d gladly take.
An aside: The rough cut we watched included a pretty intense public bathroom sex scene, featuring a full-on erection. And you get to see Kroell full-frontal in a brief shower scene. We can’t guarantee that it’s in the final product, but you never know. So, guys, feel free to pack the house.
