Synopsis

OTTO; OR, UP WITH DEAD PEOPLE

Otto is a handsome, sensitive, neo-Goth zombie with an identity crisis. He wanders the streets of the city, never sleeping, until one day he auditions for a zombie film. The director, an eccentric bohemian, begins making a film about Otto, while simultaneously shooting a film about a gay zombie revolt against consumerist society. As the final, orgiastic scene of the film is being shot, Otto struggles to access the human emotions buried beneath his zombie exterior. Director Bruce LaBruce toys with genre conventions, combining different media, including a humorous film-within-the-film, while creating a new, sexy, hyperpoliticized zombie mythology.

“One of the more disciplined entries in the LaBruce oeuvre, Otto is sexy and silly in just the right proportions, a cult item with a real heart.” – New York Times

Reviews

Otto deliriously intermingles sex and entrails but is also imaginative and witty
– Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

For a movie with this many ideological loose ends, Otto comes up with a convincingly sweet resolution.
– Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine

Bruce La Bruce’s latest offering is a deadly affair of heavily politicized metaphors that overflows with imagination, angst and a smattering of good old fashioned porn.
– S. James Wegg, JWR
