Bringing sexy back... from the dead.
In Bruce LaBruce's Otto; or, Up with Dead People, a young gay zombie named Otto (Jey Crisfar) appears on a remote highway. He has no idea where he came from or where he is going. After hitching a ride to Berlin and nesting in an abandoned amusement park, he begins to explore the city. Soon he is discovered by lesbian underground filmmaker Medea Yarn (Katharina Klewinghaus), who begins to make a documentary about him with the support of her girlfriend Hella Bent (Susanne Sachße), and her brother Adolf (Guido Sommer), who operates the camera.
Meanwhile, Medea is still trying to finish 'Up with Dead People', the epic political-porno-zombie movie that she has been working on for years. She convinces its star actor Fritz Fritze (Marcel Schlutt), to allow the vulnerable Otto to stay in his guest bedroom. When Otto discovers in his pocket a wallet containing information about his past before he was dead, he begins to remember details about his ex-boyfriend Rudolf (Gio Black Peter). He arranges to meet him at the schoolyard where they met, with devastating results.
