Sundance Review: Otto; or Up with Dead People - SendMeRSS

Otto; or Up with Dead People is plain and simple a gay zombie porn movie. Maybe if you like gay zombies, maybe if you like zombie porn, maybe if you like gay porn, you could end up liking Otto, but that's it. I was not entertained, I was not intrigued, and not a single thing about this thing fascinated me. I think the biggest question on my mind was who in the hell would watch this crap? And that's when I realized - the director has a built-in cult following.

But what kind of cult exactly? All I know is I can tell you that the entirety of the cult was in the theater. They were the people who remained after everyone quickly raced out when the first gay zombie porn scene hit. Sure there were a few spotted individuals who were either too brave or too shocked to stand up and leave, but every last one of Bruce LaBruce's followers were in that theater.

I have nothing more to say on Otto; or Up with Dead People, but I'll leave you with a "cute" little haiku review from Bloody-Disgusting.com.


Pretentious Garbage
Penises, Lots of Colors
Didn't Get the Joke

Thanks Brad, you couldn't have summed it up any better!

#2's comment reminds me of the time I went to see Blade in the theater. Every time a scene got a little bit gory, this guy 3 rows in front of me would duck his head down behind the seat in front of him. I had to wonder exactly what he was expecting from a vampire movie called Blade? Roses and chocolates? You get what you pay for when you go to a gay zombie porn movie...

Alex, I would love to hear your response on why you would have even decided to see it judging by its description.
