    Several years ago I saw a movie on HBO about a bunch of teenagers doing typical teenager stuff. The end of the movie had a scene were two of the boys were going to sleep together and then one of them was abducted by a ridiculous alien. Does anyone remember seeing this movie? I've been trying to figure out the name of it for a couple of hours now and can't.
    Thanks.

    Damn you, I remember that one but now I'll spend the rest of the day trying to remember the name of it.

    Sorry about that. It's driving me nuts trying to remember.

    All that's jumping to mind is Mysterious Skin. Is that it, by any chance?

    That doesn't fit his description exactly, but is a very good (and very under-rated) film worth anyone's time. (It can be a little close to home for abuse survivors, however.)

    The description of the synopsis does puzzle me, and I still am at a loss as to just what it was.

    I do remember that the movie was hallucinatory and confusing, very colorful and violent (in a slasher-movie kind of way.)

    Typical teenage stuff? (Think Donnie Darko on ecstacy.)

    Hmmm. Still trying to figure it out. I'll check out Mysterious Skin and see if that's it.

    thanks

    well, it wasn't mysterious skin. Maybe I'm imagining things but I recall two guys crawling in bed together and as they are about to kiss, one of them crawls out of a window and is attacked by some sort of big alien. Maybe I dreamed it and I should write a movie script.

    Even if you weren't dreaming and did see it on HBO, write the script anyway. By the time it gets into production, the new executive you're pitching won't have any memory of any HBO movies and will think it's entirely new. We're in an era where you can get rich endlessly recycling story ideas. I guess it's good for the environment...

    I KNOW ITTTTTTTTTTTT


    NOWHERE!

    By Gregg Araki. :)

    I WIN! lol It has a great cast too. James Duval (the Bunny guy in Donnie Darko), Rachel True (one of the witches in The Craft LOL), Christina Applegate (the daughter from Married with Children), Traci Lords (pornstar), Rose Mcgowan(Marylin Manson's old gf and witch on Charmed), Ryan Phillipeeeeeeeeeeee.....


    anyway..the point is..I win. lol

    I love bad cinema! Gregg Araki has also done The Doom Generation and Splendor..which I couldn't find a trailer for. It's about a chick that ends up dating two guys and they form a "Bizarre Love Triangle."
