4 story shocker has mortician explain the deaths of his clients
8 August 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

A mortician explains to a man seeking shelter from the rain how the corpses in his mortuary came to be there. There are 4 coffins and as he opens the lid of each one the movie cuts to a short story about how that person died. The first is about a teacher who hates kids. The second about a man who lures women into his home and murders them while capturing it all on film. The second has two top shelf detectives in a battle of wits to see who is the worlds leading criminologist. The fourth is about a man how doesn't give a damn about anyone but himself and is tortured by unseen forces. The man seeking shelter has unknowingly been lured to this place by his own indiscretions. Quite good though the title Alien Zone is somewhat confusing. I bought this movie under the title of House of the Dead which is much more appropriate.
