You can look forward to watching a new queer dark comedy movie, Pet Peeves, on Revry come National Pet Day (April 11, 2021). It will have its World Premiere on Revry at 5 pm (PST) / 8 pm (EST).

From creator Spencer Schilly (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Pet Peeves is about a newly paroled pet psychic named Milton Michaels, played by award-winning actor, Jonah Blechman (Another Gay Movie, This Boy’s Life). Released after 15 years behind bars in a Florida prison, Milton decides to move to California to live with his sister, Judy, in hopes to restart his pet psychic career. 

Trying to acclimate to a different world with mobile phones and computers, Milton finds the urn containing his childhood dog and reconnects with the love he had for his pet Sparky. But things change when his childhood bully, Candice, decides to show up. Apparantly, Candice’s dog has been kidnapped and she tricks Milton into a scheme that could send him back to prison.

While Milton has to deal with Candice, Judy grows frustrated over Milton staying in contact with his prison lover back in Florida. And of course, there’s this whole thing involving Milton being able to communicate with animals and learning what they have to share.

Schilly said, “I’ve always had a special connection to animals, and feel they need to be heard. If we had more Milton’s among us, listening to the animals and speaking on their behalf, the world would be a much better place for all of us. Pet Peeves gives us a glimpse into what that world would look like, and how things can get messy when we humans don’t like what we hear.”

Pet Peeves will show Milton meeting a beautiful millennial model with an eating issue that secretly lives inside her; and a sexy gay couple with an unusually adoring, disobedient dog that reveals a heartfelt shock to Milton that must be acknowledged.

I fell in love with playing Milton, the eccentric, ex-con pet psychic,” said Blechman. “The concept of going intimately into the lives of people and their pets totally hit my funny bone and was equally fascinating to explore. Oh, what our animals could tell about us!”
