Editorial Reviews

"Part horror movie, part randy teen sex farce, [Zerophilia] takes the premise that some organisms are capable of mutating gender to suit their surroundings and extends it to an Oregon undergrad whose extra chromosome allows him to alternate between male and female. Martin Curland's endearing debut delivers a ripe conceit in such gendermorphic times, ... it could conceivably spawn an entire genre of imitators." -VARIETY

Format: DVD
This is not your average sci-fi romantic comedy plot: boy meets girl, girl meets boy, boy falls for girl... but that last bit becomes a problem, because when Luke feels the stirrings of lust for Michelle, boy starts to TURN INTO a girl. This is because he has "zerophilia," a rare genetic disorder that causes those afflicted to spontaneously change gender whenever they orgasm. To compound matters, Luke's newfound female alter ego "Luca" feels quite attracted to Michelle's brother Max.

The genre is that of a teen sex comedy, and the film's subject matter makes the perfect fodder for a host of sex and gender-related jokes. However, this indie film goes beyond the formulaic pablum Hollywood seems to crank out too much of these days. On another level, it does have more to say about gender roles, relationships and acceptance of oneself.

Writer/director Martin Curland's debut production features a clever script. There are excellent performances from the entire cast, particularly Taylor Handley (Luke) and Rebecca Mozo (Michelle). Dustin Seavey and Alison Folland are definite standouts in their roles as Luke's friends Keenan and Janine, and Marieh Delfino also deserves mention as the emotionally-confused "Luca."

The special effects and makeup were pretty decent given the movie's presumably limited budget. On another note, while the filmmakers could have shot this script virtually anywhere, they made quite good use of locations in and around Eugene, Oregon.

The DVD extras don't add a lot to the film. However, there is a pretty humorous interview with actress Kelly LeBrock (The Woman in Red) where she talks of zerophilia as though it were a real disease.

Luke has a problem. He met a beautiful girl, who seems to be very

much interested in him as well. But when starts to get sexually

aroused by her, he starts to turn into a woman. (Say, what?)

You see, Luke is a victim of "Zerophilia" (2005), a genetic

abnormality that causes one to switch genders when they have an

orgasm. Of course, they can turn back just by having another orgasm,

but that may not be so easy, since a male "zero" who just changed

into a woman may not be attuned to how to sexually excite his female

self to orgasm. Then there is the matter of having to maintain two

complete wardrobes ...

Firmly tongue in cheek, this hillariously offbeat indie comedy from

writer-director Martin Curland features witty dialogue delivered by

a talented, likeable young cast, headed by Taylor Handley (whom some

may remember as Oliver on "The O.C.") as Luke. Not a gay film, but

of special interest to anyone who likes to explore the mystery of

traditional gender roles and attitudes. DVD includes a phony plug

for a supposed "support group" for zerophiliacs, deleted scenes and

a short "making of" feature. I give it four stars out of five.

I have to say that I had never heard anything about this movie when I rented it. My initial interest fell mainly in the fact that it's leading actors were Taylor Handley and Kyle Schmid (both whom I love and are gorgeous). So I rented it. Five minutes into it, I was hooked. I was actually multitasking when I put it in and stopped everything to watch it. This is one of the cleverest movies I have ever seen. Not only did I love the underlying message, which is a bit cheesy but I feel is important, (Love is out of your control, that you can't help whom you fall in love with). And I also felt it broke away the line between gay and straight, because I don't feel that when it comes to orientation things are black and white, there is a grey area. The writers show this when the main character Luke goes above and beyond to try to proove to his friend that he is straight, (Luke is a zerophiliac and not unlike a frog he can change his sex) because of the fact that once he turns into a woman he becomes sexually attracted to another guy his friend starts to wonder about Lukes sexuality even though when Luke is a man he likes a girl named Michelle. A little confused? So is Luke. But he soon realizes that accepting who you are is what's important not putting labels on everything, which I felt is the best message.Although the idea of humans being able to change their sex as a frog is able to is a bit far fecthed I thought it was important to the message that writer was sending and the storyling was so great it was easy to forget that it would never really happen.Read more ›

The premise of the film is a little far-fetched but once you get over that it is an interesting idea that is cleverly spun out. It helps that the two leading protagonists are immensely attractive (I would imagine to both males and females) and so the idea of changing genders is enticing!!

Suppose some people could switch from male to female and back, more or less at will? If you thought puberty was confusing, you ain't seen nothing yet. Simply adapting to one adult kind of sexuality is hard enough. Having to get used to the other, too, adds a whole new dimension of ambiguity. Suppose a man becomes female, at least for a while, and finds himself attracted to other women? Or to other men? It rather neatly blurs distinctions of straight and gay. Having done that for the sex-changers, do the terms still have meaning to monosexuals?

Although phrased as a teen flick and filled with traditional problems around dating and more modern questions of orientation, this has a bit more depth than you might expect. It's not for the body-shy, but overt sexuality is mostly a matter hints, shadows, and what's just off-screen. Despite a few predictable elements, I recommend this one highly.
