    My two holly bushes look dead, all the leaves are brown except one small patch on one bush.
    Are these dead?

    Not a good sign, you can check if twigs have any green tissue. But, this looks like possible winter death to me: Holly Diseases & Insect Pests

    Did you have an unusual winter temperature-wise?

    Pretty normal winter here in Rhode Island.

    I've cut back a few branches, no sign of green.
