Otto; Or, Up With Dead People
2008 release. Time to celebrate an exceptional addition to the zombie genre with Canadian director Bruce LaBruce's oeuvre Otto; Or, Up With Dead People. Renouncing the most obvious clichés, LaBruce lets his protagonist -- gay punk zombie Otto -- ramble and roam the streets of Berlin until he finds himself cast for a low budget flick. With a keen eye for style, the director picks and mixes references from classic horror, silent movies and modernity into a strident, yet poetic film. In this, Otto; Or, Up With Dead People continues the tradition of the political pornographer's previous successes, The Raspberry Reich (2004) and Hustler White (1996). Spoilt for choice, Otto features more than 50 international tracks and sounds! After careful selection, Crippled Dick Hot Wax now presents the movie's official soundtrack featuring 14 tracks and available on CD (digipak) or limited double vinyl, promising to take you on a truly crazy acoustic rollercoaster ride. Yet despite the artists' glaring differences, the result is a surprisingly coherent, compact and homogeneous compilation. Weaving classical, electronic, drone, avant-garde, pop and punk/disco into a well-balanced whole, the soundtrack introduces cinema and music lovers alike to the weirdly wonderful world of Bruce LaBruce. Artists include: Mikael Karlsson, Jean-Louis Huhta, 4th Sign Of The Apocalypse, All My Friends, Pandas Of Black Metal, Misty Roses, The Living Dead Boys, No Bra, Brittle Stars, Eyes And Teeth, Othon With Ernesto Tomasini, La Jovenc, Ultra Milkmaids + V, and The Homophones.
