Product Overview

When the doyle family moves to a small town in california, they plan on starting a new life...Perhaps a strange choice - this new life entails running the long-abandoned fowler funeral home and cemetary.

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.
