Overview

An gay teenage zombie falls in with a pretentious experimental filmmaker who casts him in a politically themed porno while documenting his experiences as a walking corpse in this existential gut-muncher from Canadian provocateur Bruce LaBruce. Adorable twink Otto Jey Crisfar was wandering the streets of Berlin and feasting on road-kill when avant-garde filmmaker Medea Yarn recruited him to appear in her latest film, a porno-political-zombie flick set during the gay zombie uprising. Gradually, over the course of shooting, Medea's interest in Otto grows and she decides to make a documentary about him. Flattered by the attention lavished upon him by both the filmmaker and his smitten fellow cast-members, Otto suddenly finds his life -- or death -- gaining a newfound sense of purpose.

    Crazy Awesome!

    Otto is probably the only gay zombie movie you'll ever see. If that scares you a little, don't let that stop you from watching this film! Full of fantastic visuals, an amazing soundtrack, and a clever story, Otto exceeds both expectations and genres. Be prepared to laugh, gross-out, get turned on, be mentally stimulated, AND have a great time!
