Well made, but pacing felt too slow.

Many unnecessary scenes. The movie was missing something. The $$$ shots took me by surprise. The movie was ok. Was the movie entertaining? YES

Where's the horror?? Great for French Realism, but awful for horror or suspense.

It’s not “nasty porn”. The movie takes place at a popular cruising spot for gay men. If you don’t know, the informal definition of cruising is “wandering about a place in search of a casual sexual partner”. The word is in the description of the movie, so sex scenes should be expected. Most you’ll get from this movie is an up-close shot of a dick being sucked. Aside from the “nasty porn”, it’s a pretty good movie. Nice scenery, casual dialogue, and a lil’ bit of blood.
