Thoughts on Death Drop Gorgeous
Thoughts – Death Drop Gorgeous takes us into the world of drag queens, showing us the competitive nature of trying to become the bigger star in the club, showing us how a killer has targeted the gay community of the area, not in a hate crime style, more of a targeted assault on what can’t be had. This is a story that is filled with the different flamboyant characters, with each drag queen having their own style, along with Dwayne the plucky bartender just wanting to make ends meet. We will be kept guessing as to who is behind the killings, without many clues being left along the way, giving the film a nice slasher feel to the horror elements being used. The performances in the film are strong from everyone involved with Wayne Richard taking the leading role and being the calmest person in the film.
Final Thoughts – Death Drop Gorgeous is a fun slasher, with plenty of twists along the way.
