Death Drive is a 2015 American film written by Robert Felt and directed by L.E. Salas. The plot revolves around a hyper-sexual exploration of the self-destructive tendencies in gay male sexuality utilizing the mediums of independent film and dance to create a highly unique work of experimental film that transcends gender, genre and expectation. Guided by a non-conventional narrative and an ambient score, Death Drive includes a variety of explicit scenes containing non-simulated sexual intercourse with visible penetration and male ejaculation. Set in the desert of California, Death Drive tells the story of a young man, who after emerging from a pool of water scrambles to piece together the previous night before embarking on a series of psychedelic adventures that reveal his darkest internal instinct.
