Queer Horror: Otto; or Up with Dead People

October 1, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 7:05 pm

Otto or Up with Dead People 2

Transgressive filmmaker Bruce LaBruce gave the zombie genre a distinctive update with Otto, set in a not-too-distant future in which the undead have evolved the ability to speak and reason, yet are still persecuted by the living. Sensitive Otto wanders the streets of Berlin before being recruited by eccentric filmmaker Medea Yarn for her zombie insurrection “magnum corpus” Up with Dead People. Whilst the eponymous hero struggles with unliving in the world, LaBruce’s film develops into a savagely irreverent critique of consumer culture and a moving parable for being different.

Screening with short Sauna the Dead: A Fairy Tale (21 mins). Introduced by Jordan Phillips, queer horror maestro at Queen Margaret University.

Content note: hardcore zombie sex and eating of flesh.
