One night while she's at work bartending, Becca (Jillian Harris) receives a call from her brother Richard (Heston Horwin) who urges her to come over, now. Becca isn't too happy about following the whims of her brother and his often crazy ideas, but she's just too loving a sister not to come - and she finds him dead, hanged in his closet. But just when this realization and the shock that comes with it kick in Richard walks in alive. Now he tells her he for some reason cannot die, and to prove that he shows her some other corpses, all himself, but dead, and apparently he has a vagina-like opening in his bedroom where he's reborn (in his present, adult state) every damn time he dies - which sounds like a handy thing, but Richard actually really wants to kill himself. Anyways, the more pressing problem at the moment is, an annoyed neighbour from downstairs, Matt (Matt Keyes) is sending the superintendent round in the morning, and there are 4 dead bodies in the apartment, and he's bound to get the wrong idea. Now Richard isn't very practical, so Becca saws the dead Richards to pieces to dispose of them in the garbage. However, things really come to a head when Matt comes up to complain, accidently dies, is reanimated - but also an incomplete version of him that turns out to be a monster is reborn, and Becca finds another corpse that's actually ... herself. Now it seems things really can't get any worse - but actually, they can ...

 

Not so much in style but in story, Dead Dicks is a throwback to a certain brand of indie grindhouse flicks from yesteryear that had an anything-goes quality to them on one hand, but coupled with a tendency towards surrealism and the macabre, and a narrative that beneath all it's layers of weirdness is actually pretty thoughtful and driven by dark humour that might turn towards bleak drama at any time. On a directorial level, this movie pretty much mirrors that approach by not going completely over-the-top but keeping its story grounded enough to be relatable despite all the weirdness, and likewise the actors all give very down-to-earth performances to make this in a very unique yet oddly enjoyable piece of "what the fuck?!"
