Writer/director Rob Williams (Role/Play, Make The Yuletide Gay, 3-Day Weekend, Back Soon, Long-Term Relationship) returns with a new romantic comedy about finding love a little too close to home.
As he reluctantly celebrates his 40th birthday, gay Pilates instructor Doug (Eric Dean -- Nine Lives, Arizona Sky) finds himself falling for two very different but equally lovable men - Jacob, a secure 50-year-old (Michael Nicklin) who came out later in life, and Colton, an adventurous 30-year-old (Benjamin Lutz -- Bite Marks, The Love Patient) who literally is the boy next door. What he doesn't know right away is that the two men are, in fact, father and son! How long can Doug juggle both relationships before everyone finds out the truth?
The Men Next Door won the Audience Award for Best Men's Feature at the North Carolina Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, and the Festival Favorite award at Philadelphia QFest.

3 Reasons To Buy This Film
Sexy stars Johnny Ferro and Stephen T. Williams give intense performances as a interracial lovers having a heated secret affair.
While the setting provides a gorgeous and inviting backdrop, it's interesting and often shocking to see a film about the Bahamian attitude toward homosexuality.
Children of God's writer/director Kareem Mortimer isn't afraid to examine harsh homophobic assertions and their consequences.
The gorgeous beaches and towns of the Bahamas are the setting for Children of God, a strong and tender romantic drama from first-time filmmaker Kareem Mortimer. Percolating under the hot sun and sand are religious intolerance, political grand-standing, family woes and hopefully enough love to conquer them all.
Johnny (Johnny Ferro) is an art student in Nassau whose technique is perfect, but he’s creatively blocked. His teacher sends him off to the rural island of Eleuthera where he meets Romeo (Stephen Tyrone Williams), a hot musician. They begin a clumsy dance of attraction and romance. Romeo has a fiancé and is identified as straight, but he’s been known to play with the boys on the side secretly. The Bahamas are bound by religious traditions that discourage homosexuality and end up forcing gay men into the closet. Lena is a pastor’s wife. Her husband demonizes homosexuality to further his career, yet he’s on the DL as well. When Lena discovers that her husband has infected her with VD, he accuses her of infidelities. These characters are all bound together in this intense drama of love, family and secrets.
Beautifully paced and with three separate story-lines that merge at the film's climax, the filmmaker really has done a great job with his small budget. Children of God has won several festival awards and been opening and closing night at many others, for good reason - it's a wonderful film. With extraordinary cinematography, a vacation worthy setting, naturalistic actors and a mythic story Children of God is a superb tale of "a pair of star-cross’d lovers."

This is the film that started it all…. Del Shores’ “Sordid Lives”!! It began as a hit stage play, then became a cult movie phenomenon, and eventually a popular television series (with most of the film stars reprising their roles)! One of the most quoted, most watched, and most adored comedy films in recent film history! Available on DVD… autographed by Mr. Shores!
Movie Synopsis: Writer-director Del Shores serves up a heaping helping of Southern-fried comic melodrama in this adaptation of his own play about infidelity, country & western music, and Airstream trailers. When their sister dies, Latrelle (Bonnie Bedelia), LaVonda (Ann Walker), and Sissy (Beth Grant) plan her funeral — an unenviable task, considering that they must carefully hide the deceased’s affair with amputee G.W. (Beau Bridges) from his wife, the vindictive Noleta (Delta Burke). Meanwhile, the trio has to come to terms with two cases of sexual orientation: Latrelle’s openly gay soap-opera star son Ty (Kirk Geiger), whose sexuality she continues to deny; and their only brother, “Brother Boy” (Leslie Jordan), who’s serving a sentence in a mental ward for his adamant belief that he is actually country & western legend Tammy Wynette. Playing an aspiring singer-songwriter, Olivia Newton-John turns up to provide the film with the occasional musical interlude.
