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.

By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 20, 2004
Format: DVD
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!

Yes, it's offensive,tasteless,shocking,sometimes down right dumb; but I can't stop watching it. Stereotypes? What stereotypes? More like archtypes. There is no intent to harm or be malicious to folks, that's a very important distinction to make. Maybe that's the message.We are a diverse community and we can take a joke. I know most all these characters. These are my friends and loved ones. There's a bit of me in each one. UFO's I love UFO's. I am UFO(Ugly,Fat&Old). It's a trip to watch this repeatedly at various levels of intoxication. One gets a different view each time. That Black Death must be some good hootch. Now, now don't start, there is infinitely less booze being served in this movie than say in The Thin Man. I am ready to hit the not so mean streets of London.There is still hope.

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!

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.

This is a VERY absurdest comedy. You need to be able to suspend your disbelief very well and tolerate ridiculous scenarios. The overall story is a little convoluted and shallow. The story is pleasant to watch and amusing and I have watched it several times. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I think many gays or absurdest lovers will like it. Just remember, it is a low budget film and that is somewhat apparent. Be willing to lower your standards a little bit to have a good time.
