Mystery Date

Indulge your CSI gay mind as corpses, cops and coffins stack up in this suspense-filled program from around the globe. Revenge in drag, mannequins that flip your mind, gothic tales that will upend you and gay serial killers…great night for a mystery date!

In Silver Stiletto two straight men are found dead in a dumpster outside of a gay bar and their wounds suggest the actions of a trained killer—could a disheveled drag queen really be responsible? A one-night stand might turn out to be your last—is this the work of a serial killer? Regrets will reveal all. An empty shopping mall and a basement full of mannequins, Night Shift follows a window dresser and a security guy as they form a friendship with some deadly consequences. In The Rookie and the Runner, a jogger in a park gets more than he bargained for when he encounters two handsome strangers. Inspired by real life events My Night with Andrew Cunanan portrays one drunken gay man's decisions during an encounter in San Francisco with future serial killer Andrew Cunanan. In It’s Just a Detail, a killer gets more of a surprise than she’s bargained for, when cleaning up the scene of the crime. In Ursula’s Victory it’s a stormy night, Ursula stops at the gate of an old cemetery and breaks the chains that keep her from entering. In her right hand she is holding a shovel, and in her left, a heavy suitcase…what does Ursula unearth?
