Whilst there are very clear exceptions, there is a tendency for gay interest horror films to veer off into an exaggerated level of camp that does the sub-genre a disservice as the over-the-top stereotyping can overwhelm the film’s narrative.
Drink Me manages to avoid the “camp trap” with apparent ease, Daniel Mansfield clearly wanting to produce a strong film first and foremost. It isn’t perfect, especially in the narrative, however it is a fairly well put together psychosexual drama. It was also well done given the micro-budget involved.

This had a chance to be great, the gingerly approach to the core narrative probably hamstrung that but it certainly deserves 5 out of 10.
