Ever wondered how the Dead Body Man has become the Dead Body Man?

Well, probably not, but this film tells you anyways.

Willie (Eddie Benevich) was born on stage, while his mother, a stripper, did a performance. Mom however wasn't too fond of her little boy, so she left him out in the streets so his father could pick him up. Eventually, little Willie was found by a crazed Vietnam veteran, who (literally) kicked him out repeatedly, but Willie always came back, so eventually, the madman took him in and brought him up, teaching him to always be on the lookout for the gooks, and to it human flesh if the situation demands it ... among other things.

Flash forward 17 years: Willie is caught stealing beer, and is sent to a mental iinstitution run by Mr Wilson, an alcoholic who is unable to come over his divorce ... and Willie takes a liking in him right away as well as some of the other inmates, including Little Hitler (Jason Senior) and Suzie Pickles, a pornstar with a monster in her vagina.

One day, when Mr Wilson is way too drunk to hand Willie his medication, Willie decides to medicate himself ... and goes on a bad trip, during which God reveals himself as the star (Debbie D) of a porn movie - and God tells Willie to kill prostitutes. Thus, Willie invites two prostitutes to the asylum for the other inmates to have fun with, and then slaughters them. And with Mr Wilson once again out from too much alcohol, the inmates help Willie to hide the bodies, and overcome the pimp who comes looking for the girls.

Bad luck strikes when Willie learns that the asylum is to be shut down by the IRS, but Willie figures a way out: Why not turn the dead hookers and their pimp into hot dogs to sell at the carnival? And this way, Willie and friends save the asylum. Then Willie figures it's time for him to move on and do good ... and kill more prostitutes ...


By and large, prequels just suck. Usually, they just tell the same story as the film they are prequelling, but overload it with biographical facts that don't really interest anybody.

Interestingly though, Dead Body Man Chronicles is different, as (for the most part) it boldly leaves the slasher-comedy genre behind to tell a sugary-sweet Let's-save-our-asylum-story of the kind that has long become a mainstay of kitsch-cinema. Thing is, writer/director Ryan Cavalline populates his story with lunatics (including an intentionally bad Hitler impersonator), prostitutes and porn stars, plus he misses no opportunity to be as offensive as can be and piles up dead bodies just in time for the finale.

And all this adds up to an enjoyably silly, bizarre and gross comedy that's mean enough to either make you love it or feel offended - your choice. I rather loved it, actually.
