"The Death of Dick Long"
Swiss Army Man co-director Daniel Scheinert’s first solo feature, The Death of Dick Long, focuses on the efforts of amateur musicians Zeke and Earl (Michael Abbott Jr. and Andre Hyland, respectively) to cover up the mysterious demise of their fellow bandmate. The task of solving the death of Dick Long falls on small-town Alabama Sheriff Spenser and Officer Dudley (Janelle Cochrane and Sarah Baker, respectively), neither of whom are prepared or experienced to investigate such a serious crime. Each strange revelation surrounding Dick’s death seemingly takes Spenser and Dudley further away from the truth. Daniel Scheinert cameos as Dick Long. The Death of Dick Long, which premiered locally during this year’s Fantastic Fest, opened Sept. 27 in Austin.
