So what is Creeps?
Creeps is a movie that follows the highs and lows of Mona and Freddy, two queer best friends who decide to quit drinking and doing drugs for a week so they can have great skin for a party. The movie follows them and their group of friends through TV nights, dinner parties, drug binges and break ups. And that's just in one week.
Mona has recently found out that her ex-girlfriend has become a successful artist and is having a big art opening in a weeks' time. Of course they MUST attend, look fabulous and have the sexiest arm candy in sight. They sadly agree that the only real way to accomplish this is to form a pact: 7 days of sobriety. By the time they make it to the opening, they aren’t speaking, they’ve barely slept, and disaster ensues.
Mona is a newly single advice blogger, and Freddy works in academic publishing - both are bored and usually up to no good. Their friends are Xiamora, a professional dominatrix, Art, a newly minted transguy, Jeanette and Suzette, lesbian twins who are club promoters and DJs (and rivals), and Vicky, the perennial wanna be singer who is always forcing them to come see her shows. Together they are a Big Homo family, however dysfunctional.
Why Creeps Now?
In 1994 I made a film called Go Fish with director Rose Troche. Back then our mission was to show that we homos are like everyone else- we date, and have friends - we have dinner parties and jobs. Now, almost 20 years later, my mission is quite the opposite: I feel we’ve graduated in LGBT cinema to be able to REALLY show that we can be like anyone else: flawed, mean, lonely – in other words real. That said, Creeps is a comedy, and a celebration of how far we’ve come on the big and small screens as LGBT people and filmmakers. But it’s going to be fun, don’t get me wrong. You will laugh. And hey, if Walter White, Dexter Morgan and Hannah Horvath can be heroes, then so can Mona and Freddy.
Where does Creeps come from?
Creeps comes from the joyous collaboration of José Muñoz and Guinevere - they share a story by credit on the screenplay. Friends since 1986, they decided to map out this creepy tale while he was on hiatus in Los Angeles, and laughed a lot in the process. José Muñoz is a writer and a scholar living in New York City. He teaches at NYU.
