He's got a little weird since his Mother committed suicide!
I'd be weird too if I had Hank Andrews for a Father and, on top of that, when I was a kid, locking me up with dead bodies!

I finally came around to see this horror, I remember seeing vividly on the video shelves, over thirty years ago. I remember one of the stills on the back of the cover, vividly, where our two hotties are making out, in all their nakedness. This film really starts off well, with you guessing what the hell is going on, on all cylinders basically, where soon you begin to add up all their dots, especially with Bill Paxton's lovestruck, psychopathic character, and again this take notice actor, makes a meal of his role. For the last thirty minutes, it's all so apparent here (where it's no surprise, Paxton is the psycho) we totally know where the rest of the films going, with just a waiting process, not good for a thriller/suspense/horror. Mortuary is a major disappointment to me, especially in the gore department. I really expected this film to much more gorier, like a few other 80's shockers. The story has beautiful Mcdonough losing her father to a nutter (guess who?) with a baseball bat. Other strange happenings occur, her boyfriend's friend, strangely disappears, as she's having bad visions, as well as a stalker/nutter (guess who?) putting the scares on her at night, in some creepy cultish garb. We see at first hand, a little, how embalming works, and the sex scenes w're ere thankful for, as well as Mcdonough's beautiful presence. At some point, when trying to add up the dots, I really found this movie stupid, like the living hand sticking out of the casket, an strange occult scene, following, involving Mcdonough's mum (the hot Lydia day George who's supposedly having an affair with Paxton's father and owner of the mortuary (the late Christoper George, where him and Lydia previously starred in the ultra sicko chainsaw flick, Pieces. I did like the movie's score, but of course the best thing about this film, can be summed up in two words: Bill Paxton, who does relievedly make the last ten minutes, worth it, in what is just a grave-ly disappointing flick. Sorry about the pun.
