(Blood in the Snow Film Festival(BITS)): DEAD DICKS (Canada 2019) ***1/2)

Dead Dicks Poster
After Becca receives a distressing call from her suicidal brother Richie, she rushes over to his apartment and finds him alive and well – surrounded by copies of his own dead body.

One wonders the reason that this film got selected for the Blood in the Snow film festival as there is no blood in the snow in this film.  But thank heavens the film got picked, as this film shows lots of promise.  And there are lots of blood to compensate, as bodies get chopped up and disposed in garbage bags.  

The story defies logic but it works.  Suicidal Richie (Heston Horwin) cannot die – a sort of horror GROUNDHOG DAY.  Whenever Richie kills himself, he re-emerges from a vagina on the wall in the next room.  Sister Becca (Jillan Harris) helps her brother though no help can save the day.  Downstairs apartment neighbour Matt (Matt Keyes) sees the dead bodies of Richie’s past deaths and the film gets weirder.  Written and directed by the Montreal-based duo, the film keeps audience’s interest piqued by the creation of lots of audience anticipation segments. 

 The micro-budget film showcases the budding talent of both cast and crew in this weird horror fest flick.
