The filmmaking team responsible for Swiss Army Man is back with a new dark comedy. Check out the official trailer for The Death of Dick Below below.
Those two cops look like they’ll probably steal the movie. I’m intrigued by the premise, especially since I feel that Dick gets his richard chopped off. By a band saw perhaps?
I haven’t seen Swiss Army Man, but I’m well aware of that film’s premise and how Daniel Radcliffe acted as a farting corpse. I’m not sure that’s my sort of humor, but I’m liking what I see here. It’s a mystery wrapped up in a dark comedy. What’s not to love?
Holy Crap. Dick is dead. Died last night after band practice, and his bandmates, Zeke & Earl (Michael Abbott, Jr. & Andre Hyland), don’t want anybody finding out how. That’s too bad though, ‘cause news travels fast in small town Alabama, and these guys suck at covering their tracks. The authorities haven’t ID’d the body just yet, but Zeke’s wife (Virginia Newcomb) and his daughter are suspicious already.
From a screenplay by Billy Chew, director Daniel Scheinert (one half of the Swiss Army Man duo known as Daniels) expertly balances the hilarity and heartache of what happens when dark secrets are dragged kicking and screaming into the light.
The Death of Dick Long hits theaters September 27, 2019.
What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
