This social satire on total, faceless authority begins with Smith bewildered by forces he doesn’t understand. Like Chicken Little, Mike is threatened by the falling ceiling, while spooks dressed in conventional white sheets invite him to a party in his own house. In Smith’s characteristic camp parody, Secret Horror is an allegory for the fate of individuals lost in the social sauce, hopelessly out of touch with the glamorous. Trapped in his pathetic lifestyle, Mike, in the end, consoles himself with Neil Diamond’s anthem “Forever in Blue Jeans”, forever mediocre.
