Give the trailer a spin at the top of the article.
Danny is your average Brooklyn party boy. This year, he and his friends couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming “Brooklyn Annual Enema Party”; one of Brooklyn’s biggest party events! While the night starts out fun, it quickly takes a turn when Danny is attacked by a stranger. He survives, but now a year later, Danny decides to give his social life a second chance. Wrong choice – as Danny and everyone else who helped him that night, are in danger. A man wearing a unicorn mask is killing off Brooklyn, one queen at a time, and he won’t stop until he has his revenge.
Killer Unicorn is directed by Drew Bolton from a screenplay penned by José D. Álvarez; the film stars Alejandro La Rosa, Dennis Budesheim, and Markus Kelle.
Writer Alvarez has talked about the film at several major magazines. At Billboard, he described the film as: “Like John Waters topping John Carpenter, so equal parts scary, campy and queer.”
