Editorial Reviews

The story of two lads from Belfast as they stumble their way through the London gay underworld in search of 'gainful employment'. This being the offering of sexual favors to older gay men in order to subsidize their respective giros. However, when one of the lads accidentally shags a punter to death, they are forced to look for 'work' elsewhere. It is then that they discover the myth of 'The Bread in the Bed' - a huge bed full of money. 'Nine Dead Gay Guys' is the result of the ensuing caper as the lads begin the search for the elusive bed.

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!

What a great movie! While the story is based in London, it is about 2 Irish guys abroad. How the Irish view colors their view and experiences. How well Irish-English describes bizarre situations. How others respond to the Irish.

Looking to get out of Ireland, seemingly the North, to make a buck, our fellows live off the city, and discover new ways to get by. What follows is a very light and funny story of how different ethnic groups clash in even little ways as they melt in the pot, and the inter-relatedness of it all.

I watch lots of 'gay' movies, and so many of them stink. This one sails, avoids political correctness, yet is never mean spirited. If you do not get Irish humor or social commentary, skip it. Otherwise, you will have a great time!

Generally, it's a good idea to read the back cover of a movie to get a taste of what it is about. That's still especially true in this case, as it says right off the bat, that it's "Offensively funny, politically incorrect and in-your-face". :) If you dont have a good sense of humor and an open mind, chances are it's going to offend you in one way or anoher. But there's no sense in bashing a movie that warns you ahead of time. So sit back, relax, and take it for what it is; a humerous comedy of Britain's underbelly. Besides, reading into things is so overrated. ;)

As far as the service goes, it was pleasant, and I received the product within the delivery window. The movie itself is, entertaining, a little different, and those three old ladies make me giggle. Enjoy!

Young Irishman Kenny decides to follow in the footsteps of his best mate Byron, who left to make his fortune in the big city -- London. He finds Byron shacked up in an abandoned building, but worse, he learns that his best mates been earning his money not in some blue-collar trade but as a hustler at the local gay bar. In spite of this, Kenny decides to stay on with his mate and soon finds himself drawn Byron's life, as his money quickly runs out.
But things take an unusual turn when words spreads that The Queen has been murdered. Stories abound about a hidden trove of cash tucked away in the gigantic bed she shared with her lover, Golders Green, an Orthodox Jew. Determined to find the money, they set off around London in search of Golders' house, leaving a trail of accidental deaths, a desparate dwarf, and Kenny discovering the truth about himself.
Writer/Director Ky Mo Lab's first film is irreverant, ballsy, campy and just plain fun. The dialogue is sharp and funny, and delivered incredibly well by all the actors. Glen Mulhern and Brendan Mackey are wonderful as the duo of Kenny and Byron. They come across as genuine friends, willing to help one another out in a pinch. The featured actors are equally fine, including Vas Blackwood, Steven Berkoff, Michael Praed, and Karen Sharman. But, Raymond Griffiths almost steals the entire movie as The Desparate Dwarf who only wants someone to have sex with him.
The movie doesn't take itself too seriously, which makes it even more enjoyable. A great film that will have you laughing out loud.

This is a fun dark comedy. When I saw the title, I was apprehensive. However, the main characters are likeable and the premise of the movie was unexpectedly fresh. Also, this isn't your stereotypical gay movie. The main characters are Irish men in their early-mid 20's who come to London because the "streets are paved with gold." Well, long story short, they end up doing some gay hustling to make ends meet between dole (sp?)checks. Hilarity ensues when one gay guy is found dead and the main characters find themselves unexpected with the murder weapon. The story continues with a man hunt for a money stash. In the end, 9 gays guys end up dead - but in mostly funny ways. BTW, there is a tiny bit of nudity but it's pretty tame.

I've seen the movie twice and have recently added it to my DVD collection.
