“DEVIL’S PATH”— A LGBT Psychological Thriller

“Devil’s Path”

A LGBT Psychological Thriller

Amos Lassen

LGBT actor Matthew Montgomery moves to the other side of the camera which his direction of “Devil’s Path”, an intriguing and bloody psychological LGBT thriller. Set in 1992 in a large remote forest, we soon learn is a rather notorious cruising area for gay men along a hiking track called Devil’s Path. After several gay hikers have gone missing, part of the main trail has been closed off by the local authorities that cannot find any leads or bodies.  This hasn’t stopped the men seeking some pleasure in the woods. Two strangers, Noah (Stephen Twardokus, also the co-writer with Montgomery of the script) and Patrick (JD Salzo) meet there for the first time.

It does not take long to realize that the two men re opposites and that Noah is not the kind of guy that he is attracted to, yet something is established between them. Later they are suddenly forced off the main trail after a confrontation with other hikers and soon find themselves running for their lives and the only place to hide is in the trees.

I cannot say anymore about the plot except that it is filled with twists and turns and no one is really who we had assumed they are. The tension does not stop and this is wonderful addition to the canon of gay film.
