The old Hotel Dante, a converted island apartment complex, is said to be haunted, but it’s not until Kevin (Gregory Michael) moves in with his lover Toby (Charlie David) that something sinister is released. In 1840, Ambrosius (William Gregory Lee, ‘Xena,’ ‘Dark Angel’) was set to marry Grace (Tracy Scoggins), a witch. The wedding is off when she finds him having sex with his butler, and she chains him in the basement, only to be released by the kiss of a young man.
When Kevin follows a voice into hidden parts of the basement in 2005, close enough for Ambrosius to kiss him, he unleashes a now evil immortal into the world. Toby and other Dante residents must try to save Kevin and figure out the supernatural forces at work.
It’s a show aimed towards gay men for the most part, with Ambrosius’ fairly explicit male sex scene within the first ten minutes of the first episode and several love scenes between Kevin and Toby later. Toby’s best friend is lesbian Van (Nadine Heimann). Bisexual Amber (Kendra Sue Waldman) hooks up with DJ Crissy (Michaela Mann) for love on the beach, but the sex scenes between women leave much more to the imagination than those between men. Van has a girlfriend, Tina (Rena Riffel, Mulholland Dr., Showgirls), in season two. (AB)
