KAOS favourite Doug Locke is back with a chilling new video for In or Out. "The music video is a tribute one of my favorite films, the 80s vampire cult classic The Lost Boys," Doug says. "Imagine if The Lost Boys crashed a house party picking off victims one by one with the levity of Britney Spears’ Toxic. I was inspired by the charisma of Anne Rice’s character Lestat, the Vampire and by the look and feel of Fiona Apple’s Criminal music video."

In 2016, shortly after filming on The Breeding wrapped, its lead actor Marcus Bellamy was charged with the second-degree murder of his boyfriend, Bernardo Almonte. After beating and strangling him to death, he confessed in a disturbing Facebook post.

I watched The Breeding in blissful ignorance of this fact, so the unpleasant taste this nasty little film left in my mouth had nothing to do with its shocking afterlife.

So, where to start? Marcus Bellamy gives a detached, inscrutable performance as Thomas that tallies with his real life sideline as a psychotic killer. Unfortunately, none of the other characters are remotely likable either, although David J. Cork is inoffensive as Thomas' boyfriend.

Director Daniel Armando (Daddy's Boy) hampers his film further with that bane of the independent film: the indiscriminate use of music. The Breeding is flooded with it. And whilst some of it is quite good, less is more. Is it a film, or a string of music promos?

But it's the script that really sinks this film. Its whole raison d'être appears to be as a warning to black gay men to stay away from whitey. Only an idiot would argue that there isn't a problem with race in the gay community, but the clumsy, sledgehammer subtle insinuation that white men only pursue black men in order to satisfy their slave fantasies is as credible as a Fox News report on Trump. Moreover, it's grimly ironic that a film hell bent on attacking interracial relationships is fronted by a black man who, in the real world, murdered his boyfriend, a person of colour. This irony is presumably lost on the grimly calculating Novo Novus Productions, who are busily promoting this film without any apparent regard for the family of Bernardo Almonte. Roll up, roll up, see our leading man, sexy star of New York's Broadway Marcus Bellamy!

The Breeding is a deeply offensive, miserable film. Not because of the unpleasant themes. Not even because of the incompetence with which those themes are handled. But in the mean spirited attack on interracial love, and in the filmmaker's bald cynicism in promoting this horror show at the expense of Bernardo Almonte and his family. That, frankly, is just obscene.

The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive

The Pleasure short, from FHAT, is here, starring Olisa Odele (Chewing Gum). The FHAT boys – Sedric and Aaron - bring you a three minute time warp into the life of a man yearning to just be himself. In a world that begs us to hide our truest selves, Lawrence (Olisa Odele) keeps his secret pleasures hidden from the world, behind a red door locked away in his apartment. This pleasure room allows him to escape from the norms of his mundane life. This film is a reflection of how it feels to grow up different; a glimpse at what it feels like to grow up queer, disabled, outcast, artistic or minority. This video challenges you to be yourself. Everyone has a voice. Everyone has a weird side - maybe even a fetish. We invite you to a glimpse of knowing that pleasure from Lawrence’s point of view.

FHAT is a newly-formed unapologetic duo project from Sedric and Aaron – a queer music project that feels home in alt-R&B. When moving from New York to Berlin the duo came musically closer together than ever. This sexy future R&B sound of FHAT only comes with two people who understand each other's vibe perfectly.

Alan Ladd creates one of the most iconic roles in cinema history as the lonely gunslinger in George Stevens' classic tale of the old west, Shane (1953).

Along with Jean Arthur, Van Heflin and Oscar nominated performances by Jack Palance as a psychotic hired killer and especially Brandon De Wilde as a young impressionable boy, it’ one of the great “coming of age" movies. Gloriously photographed, beautifully scored, impeccably acted and deftly directed, this one is guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings and stay with you a long time.  Steve Hayes
