Survivor winner Fabio/Jud stars in homoerotic horror movie 1313: Nightmare Mansion

Survivor Nicaragua winner Jud Birza, aka Fabio, is starring in a new 1313: Nightmare Mansion, a movie directed by David DeCoteau, whose low-budget horror and slasher films may be best known for their homoeroticism. It will be released via cable systems’ on-demand services on February 1, and will be on DVD Feb. 22.

As you can see in the trailer below, Fabio and his fellow cast members spend a large part of the movie in white briefs, which is a good distraction from the absolutely scary acting and writing (“Where did my clothes go?”). Dudetube has screenshots from the trailer.

Fabio shows his acting range by doing things such as fellating a knife and taking a shower, both of which are previewed in this trailer, the best video you’ll watch all week:
