"A terrific film... a true work of exploitation cinema unafraid

to take risks and visit dark places" - All Things Horror

"the sound design is enveloping and the editing sharp and clever" - Popoptiq

Andres Torres evokes a bygone underground in his debut about a killer with artistic ambitions. A micro-budget story about exploitative art and the rage it unleashes in a powerless man, Andres Torres's Bag Boy Lover Boy hints at what might have happened had Bucket of Blood been reimagined in downtown New York circa 1980.

A throwback to a kind of New York nightcrawler cinema that hasn’t been seen since Abel Ferrara was regularly serving up traumatized urban insanity, “Bag Boy Lover Boy” is also a debut – by Andres Torres  — that has cult movie written all over it.

- John Anderson, Indiewire

The film has an incredible energy of chaos, a feeling of helplessness, and a desire to be heard. Stifled and exploited, the protagonist finds his voice through violence only because he has no other means of expression. The sound design is enveloping and the editing sharp and clever.
