Its most likely that the LCD is dead. That would actually be best case scenario right now. I don't know who started the rice rumor, but it actually does more harm than good.

Buy a new screen from a reputable place like iFixit and hopefully that gets you back up and running. While you have the phone apart, inspect for and clean any corrosion you can find.
