Willie (Eddie Benevich) might be slightly retarded ... but he's also hell of an effective serialkiller - even if he thinks, God lives in his closet and speaks to him through porn tapes, even if he suffers from multiple personality disorder and has a small Siamese twin growing from his side (small enough so he stays hidden most of the time).

Willie has no actual job, but he sort-of works as the dead body man, supplying a local meatdealer with human flesh, because there are more cannibals out there than you might think. Willie might have no real friends, but to meet people like himself, he goes to a serialkiller-self-help group, where he gets into constant discussions with Ed (Peter Blessel), who unlike Willie is a very self-righteous serialkiller. Eventually, Willie thinks Ed has become his buyer's new dead body man, and he kills him.

Willie though is not happy as a serialkiller, so he tries to get a real job, but he sucks both at the suicide hotline and at telemarketing, so he realizes the only way for him is to return to killing people, many people.

Eventually, Willie comes to the conclusion the only way to keep him from killing for good is to kill his Siamese twin - but he's not one easily to be killed, and even after Willie has cut him up, buried him, and officially passed his role as dead body man on to someone else ... it's not sure that the twin will not come back to life, horribly, and into Willie's life ...

 

Dead Body Man is something like a diamond in the rough: There are many shocking, funny and shockingly funny ideas (in fact way too much for one movie), but much more than anything else the film comes across as unnecessarily convoluted and running a good half hour too long - and thus the film seems to be constantly falling short of reaching full effectiveness. Add to this lead Eddie Benevich, who is good in some scenes, but overall his talent doesn't seem to have come to full bloom yet, and some technical inconsistencies (not so much in special effects but in lighting and sound) rather typical for very low budget independent productions, and you get a pretty good picture what you're in for.

All that said, Dead Body Man still is entertaining and at times very amusing, one just can't shake the feeling it isn't all it should have been (and probably not even all the filmmaker wanted it to be).
