L.A. ZOMBIE

USA / Germany / France, 2010 (MIFF 2010, Night Shift)

Director: Bruce LaBruce

The creator of Otto; Or, Up with Dead People (MIFF 08) extends his adventures in cinema's most unmarketable sub-genre - gay zombie porn.

Zombies don't often come as fully-ripped as porn star François Sagat - except in Bruce LaBruce's L.A. Zombie. Our anti-hero is convinced he's an alien zombie sent to earth, where he roams the streets of Los Angeles in search of dead bodies and gay sex - an activity that reveals his ‘special gift' of shagging the deceased back to life.

Conceived as a more hardcore companion piece to Otto, and featuring minimal dialogue but maximum soundtrack, L.A. Zombie raises the stakes with LaBruce's infamous ‘schlock' tactics - promising plenty of wound-shagging and more penises than you can shake a stick at.
