There is usually a good reason why a cult film is just that and that reason is often they aren't very good. GYPSY 83 is no exception. If it wasn't for the goth aspect and the gay themes this snore fest would probably have remained in the cursed development stage. While Todd Stephens may be an icon in the gay community it doesn't automatically make him the next John Waters and I find with his work he seems to be doing just that. I may be wrong there, the man certainly has talent but I just don't like his films. Karen Black was the only thing of interest to me, great to see John Doe but while both Sara Rue and Kett Turton are fine actors there just wasn't enough of a script here to work with and ultimately you couldn't care less what happens in the story and end up falling asleep.
