Low budget movie

on 9/10/2008

Didn't know this was a low budget TV movie made for SciFi before I bought it. It was a cheap blu ray and the movie was ok so still not a bad deal.

Product Overview

The director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Poltergeist and Toolbox Murders is back with his latest horrifying creation...

In the small town of Santa Loraina, California, the decrepit, long-abandoned Fowler Funeral Home has become a local legend. As the story tells it, Zeb Fowler bought the land to start up a ranching business, but something killed off all the cattle. To make ends meet, Zeb became the town mortician, and the Fowler house was turned into a funeral home - complete with a cemetery for a yard. But the strangest part of the story is the Fowler's son Bobby, whose face was so hideously disfigured it was hidden beneath a burial shroud. At age eight, Bobby mysteriously vanished, and ten years later his parents were found murdered - their faces smashed in. Locals believe that Bobby is still alive.

Today, the Fowler Funeral Home is the stuff nightmares are made of - backed-up sewage pooling the yard, a house of filth, decay, coffins, embalming equipment, and a strange black fungus growing on everything - and now the Doyle family is moving in.

Having recently lost her husband, Leslie Doyle (Denise Crosby) is relocating her two children, Jonathan (Dan Byrd) and Jamie (Stephanie Patton), to Santa Loraina so she can become the town's new mortician. But the Doyles have no idea of the horror that they're in for. Soon they'll uncover what happened to the Fowlers - what evil inhabits the grounds of the estate and what happens to anyone who steps foot there...

Review Okay, so how is it that I've become the biggest Tobe Hooper fan on the planet over the past 2 years? I was never really a "fan" of Texas Chain Saw Massacre...But since what has become a somewhat religious experience for me -- seeing an uncut Texas Chain Saw Massacre 2 and Toolbox Murders back-to-back in the decaying Victoria Theatre in San Francisco 2 years ago -- I'm a born again Hooper Trooper...So when I sat down to see Tobe's new flick, Mortuary (penned by the same team that wrote his Toolbox and *cough* Crocodile), I was very, very excited. And when I got up after watching the movie, I was still very excited, but not for the reason I had expected -- I had just seen a film unlike anything else Hooper has ever delivered. The guy just amazes me, seriously -- his follow-up to the well-received splatterfest of Toolbox is a zany, slime-soaked rollercoaster ride of spook thrills and family comedy...Mortuary has the smarts to know that it's on the lighter side of things and to play to its strengths, which is a refreshing alternative to many of the craftless, self-conscious pout-fests that have hit the screen this year. If you like cheeky horror like Night of the Creeps and Return of the Living Dead, you should definitely give Mortuary a try.
