New David DeCoteau trailer starring ''SURVIVOR'' winner Fabio

Lots of shots of Fabio and other twinks in their underwear.

This is why old white gay men shouldn't make movies. White briefs,and blond boys walking in a trace. Look quick or you'll miss 1958!

Fabio is hot though.

Now we know why he was so comfortable walking around in his underwear in 'Survivor'!

Does Fabio love the gays?

R4, according to other sites I've read, he is gay-friendly, yes.

Is it possible that he is gay or bi?

I have enjoyed some of the other DeCoteau movies but this looks really bad. Fabio looked better on Survivor.

We've only seen an excerpt of it so far, R7.

It looks like there is a shower scene of Fabio and lots of shots of his ass in briefs.

I'd say that's pretty good

They look fake and like an underwear commercial. Okay, a weird underwear commercial. Those tighty whities are too clean and whitey for that age male.

Well I do, R14. I can't help it. I loved watching him on this season's Survivor. His handsome face, toned body and cute little butt made it worth watching.

Do you think he's been with a guy?

David DeCoteau just makes the same movie over and over. Change up some of the 'actors' and change the title and *voila* another movie made.%0D %0D Frankly, I think he casts based on who will fit in the underwear, which is the only thing that remains exactly the same in each move.%0D %0D Oh wait, there was that one movie where they wore SPEEDOS ! Never mind.

by Anonymousreply 1701/08/2011

Is Fabio gay? I'm skeptical a heterosexual male would play a character only in briefs the entire movie with 5+ males also only in briefs as his first movie after a publicity raising show like Survivor directed by a gay man and made for gay men.

by Anonymousreply 1801/08/2011

Why not show the guys' naked asses?

They do it in all sorts of mainstream movies, so why not in DeCoteau's?

is it possible there will be some nudity in this one?

by Anonymousreply 1901/08/2011

"his first movie after a publicity raising show like Survivor"

I'm pretty sure the movie was filmed BEFORE Survivor when he was starting out as a struggling actor.

That doesn't mean he isn't gay or bi, though.

by Anonymousreply 2001/08/2011

Sean Faris, Riley Smith, Hunter Ritter, Drew Fuller, & Glee's Cory Monteith had early roles in DeCoteau's Undie Epics.

by Anonymousreply 2101/08/2011

This is a bit different though. It's not just guys with their shirts off- there's actual gay text here.

I think Fabio's gay. No one's this "gay friendly". Ironically, he was much hotter on Survivor than in this clip. He's way too waxed, perfumed, and prettied up. The Breck girl hair has undergone one too many shampoos.

by Anonymousreply 2201/08/2011

I have nothing against white briefs, but those boys look like they're wearing DIAPERS!!

Davey, there is so much better underwear you could use!

There's bulge enhancing underwear, pouch underwear, etc.

There's Andrew Christian, there's N2N, there's DMK, there's so much nice looking underwear!

"I think Fabio's gay. No one's this "gay friendly"."

Well that's interesting. We'll have to wait and see. Fabio has said up until now he is straight and likes women, but perhaps that was just to help his career?

by Anonymousreply 2401/08/2011

R24- perhaps. But keep in mind that he won Survivor, so he's a fairly wealthy young man now. One wonders, too, whether this peculiar underpants-wearing gay slasher movie is something one would do to help their career. It seems more like something a young, hot gay man would do for kicks and to get laid.

by Anonymousreply 2501/08/2011

R25, the movie was filmed before 'Survivor' when he was a struggling artist looking for work. It's not something he did after becoming famous, so there may not have been anything else available at the time.

by Anonymousreply 2601/08/2011

R26- which only proves my point. This isn't the vehicle that a struggling straight actor would choose to try to launch his career.

by Anonymousreply 2701/09/2011

'Fabio' is famous? I've never heard of him before. Now, Brad Pitt is famous; this guy's just some underwear model who went on a reality show that was over 5 years ago.

by Anonymousreply 2801/09/2011

Who watches these movies? Young gay guys who haven't worked up the nerve to watch a real porno? Guys who are really into soft core? Who?

Horror fans will go get a decent horror movie imho, and twink fans will watch a porno. There's probably a niche out there for gay horror, but Decoteau's films just look awful.

by Anonymousreply 2901/09/2011

[quote]That man just has absolutely no desire to make a good film.

Why should he ... when he makes a lot of money with intentionally BAD horror films, with homoerotic scenes that tease but never deliver nudity or sex (And I'd be willing to bet this one will be the same.) He's got a ready audience of fans for these, and a development deal with Here!TV that pretty much pays the bills.

The blurb on the YouTube posting says it will debut on VOD through cable systems. I assume he means pay-per-view, which would be new for him. Up to now, his films have gone directly to Here!TV, which is video on demand on most systems that carry it.

Here!TV is actually running a "profile" of DeCoteau now. which I haven't had a chance to see yet.

I used to be a big fan, since I like schlocky, bad horror films, and filmmakers who don't take themselves too seriously. I loved "Leeches!" and some of his earlier "Brotherhood" series films. But he lost me with "Beastly Boyz" which was just too fucking strange, on many levels.

by Anonymousreply 3001/09/2011

He must be totally low rent. If he was a bigger player, I'd expect to hear all kinds of stories about him and his cheesy productions.

Here's the movie poster from DeCoteau's site - it's advertised as "A Supernatural Thriller For Girls!"

R28, I think you are confusing Fabio with Ozzy. Fabio was not on Survivor 5 years ago - he is this season's new winner.

by Anonymousreply 3301/09/2011

I'm saying Survivor was over 5 years ago, R33. The only Fabio I'm aware of is the cheesy Bulgarian (or wherever he is from) who used to be the model for cheezy covers of romance novels in the 1980s. This guy I couldn't pick in a line-up.

Fabio and his best friend on "Survivor," Ben, did not ping at all, despite being almost constantly together. Fabio did the film only for the money.

by Anonymousreply 3701/09/2011

R37, just because they did not 'ping' doesn't mean Fabio isn't gay. If Benry is straight, that's probably one reason there was no sexual tension.

Also add to that the fact that they were out in the wilderness fighting to get water and shelter and to keep from being eliminated. Not exactly a place for a lot of heavy sex.

by Anonymousreply 3801/09/2011

did Fabio's Survivor bio say he was an actor?

by Anonymousreply 3901/09/2011

I'm not sure, R39. I think it listed the fact that he was several things: musician/model/actor/student etc.

by Anonymousreply 4001/09/2011

So, does this movie feature the obligatory gay scene that is available in DeCoteau's productions for HereTV/Regent Media?

I remember I was bummed out that his very first Brotherhood movie didn't have a guy on guy scene (with the leader of the pack and his object of desire).

His earlier work is bad, but still has a kind of campy vibe to it. One of his earlier movies (Brotherhood 2?) featured an entire scene of guys showering in slow motion (IN SLOW MOTION!). And Voodoo Academy has guys touching themselves while being asleep.

However everything that comes after Leeches is just atrocious. The only thing that speaks in his favor is his talent for picking the perfect male (when you're into white muscular or swimmers build jocks) eye candy material for his features.

by Anonymousreply 4101/09/2011

I'm not sure what's in it, R41, other than what I've seen in the trailer.

What's interesting though is that DeCoteau did 'discover' Fabio before he became famous on 'Survivor', so he obviously still has an eye for finding cute twinks.

by Anonymousreply 4601/10/2011

I did watch the profile of DeCoteau, which is currently showing on Here!TV OnDemand. He actually has over 70 credits as a director, starting with the campy Roger Korman-type horror films. He talks about making "quality" (for the money allotted to it, and the ridiculously short shooting schedule allowed) films. I remember him saying, on the commentary track on one of his films, that he often buys leftover film stock from other movie makers, to keep costs low. In the Here profile, he talks a lot about his first gay film, Leather Jacket Love Story, and some of the inexperienced actors he had cast who later made it big in films or TV (He didn't mention Cory from Glee, for some reason).

A DeCoteau epic where a man actually touches another man without a naked woman between them? There is progress.

He does get his share of whatever the male equivalent of "starlet" is--Drew Fuller, Sam Page, Sean Faris, Josh Henderson and now Fabio.

"Wolves of Wall Street" is pretty good, with Eric Roberts and "Clueless" star Elisa Donovan ("Amber"). I like his DeCoteau films, they're unique.

by Anonymousreply 5701/10/2011

Unlikely, R57. That's not DeCoteau's style. His twinks are "straight." Some of them just seem to develop obsessions with other twinks. And you know how it is--sometimes bros like to share a ho.

From the trailer it looks like they spend most of the movie in briefs. I wonder what plot device lead to this? Typically he can only manage isolated scenes.

Very, very few Survivor contestants go on to successful careers in show business. So Fabio/Jud has likely already peaked whether or not Ozzy and Jud had sex (separately) in that house.

by Anonymousreply 7001/11/2011

R70, I agree that most Survivor contestants are unlikely to become major stars.

However, Fabio is a winner and not just a contestant, plus he already has a charisma that many of them do not, and some minor connections in the entertainment and modeling world.

Jud's whole game on SURVIVOR was to play under the radar. He was named a dumb blonde, a Fabio on the first show. That was exactly his plan... to seem dumb, not all that good at challenges and not much of a threat%0D in general.

by Anonymousreply 7401/11/2011

R73, it was his friends on Survivor who called him that - his real name is Judson.

But actually, Fabio has made him more famous and more popular than he would have been without the name, so I have to disagree.

The audience loved the name Fabio and as Jeff Probst said, he is also very popular with kids.

David posted recently that Fabio texted him on New Year's Eve wishing him a Happy New Year and thanking him for the opportunity to star in the movie.

So is this proof that Survivor, Big Brother, etc. actively recruits aspiring models/actors to be on their shows instead of relying on the audition tapes that regular people send in? Like, you have to know someone to get on one of these shows?

by Anonymousreply 7801/13/2011

It seems to be about half and half. Some of the contestants are definitely recruited, and others are selected based on their own merit from the tapes they send in.

I've actually personally known three young actors from acting class who later went on to appear in DeCocteaus films.

Arthur Napiontek Taylor Graham David Flannery

I'm jealous that I'm probably too old to appear in any of his films, trashy as they are. But people I personally knew from my former peer group actually got appeared in his films, so they may actually move on to bigger and better things.

by Anonymousreply 8201/25/2011

Do you have to be gay to appear in his films, R81?

by Anonymousreply 8301/25/2011

My bad, I meant to say "got a part" and ended up writing "appeared."

Arthur Napiontek (who was also in PINEAPPLE EXPRESS) and Taylor M. Graham seem to be straight and have girlfriends. There's no reason to suspect them over any other attractive aspiring male actor of liking guys.

I believe it was Brotherhood VII where you see Arthur Napiontek making out with another guy, both wearing briefs. Hot scene, of course, their bulges remain about a foot apart from each other.

David Flannery, on the other hand... when I first looked at his myspace profile a few years ago, while his orientation said "Straight", his wallpaper had pictures of Abercrombie Models. David Flannery, while a pretty boy, is on the chubbier side, and he struck me as an Abercrombie Model wannabe, with all his professional photos and self-taken photos of himself. His myspace profile looked much like a gay teen's profile. He could very well be into guys, and it wouldn't surprise me if he's hooked up with guys. Very often, guys are attracted to what they want to be.

by Anonymousreply 8401/26/2011

"Seem to be straight" is the key. Most closeted men "seem to be straight". It's a world full of self loathing people who can't quite come to terms with who they really are. It's no different in the entertainment industry.

by Anonymousreply 8501/26/2011

So what about Fabio?

by Anonymousreply 8601/26/2011

R85... it's like the existence of God. There is no proof that the Hebrew god Yahweh exists. There is no proof that the Hebrew god Yahweh doesn't exist. However, the burden of proof lies with the people who claim Yahweh exists, not with the people who don't believe Yahweh exists. So by default, until there is evidence that demonstrates that Yawheh could exist, I assume that Yahweh doesn't exist. The same goes for leprechauns and unicorns.

So, these young actors appear to be straight. By default, most males appear to be straight. With the exception of David Flannery, I have not seen any evidence that leads me to believe that these young actors are possibly interested in guys sexually. Does that for sure mean they aren't interested in guys? No, but that's not where the burden of proof lies.
