Sandra Larson has always been fascinated by the entire sensory experience surrounding death: its touch, smell and look. As a child, she would search out dead animals and perform ritualistic burials. As a young woman, Sandra gets a job at Wallis Funeral Home, first as a general assistant, then progressing to study to become an embalmer. At the funeral home, she begins to take her fascination with death to the next level by becoming a necrophiliac. But she also begins her first ever relationship with Matt, a medical student, with who she is totally open about her necrophilia. He finds this aspect of her compelling. He becomes all consumed with her as she is consumed with dead people. The questions become how far he will take this fascination with her to understand fully what is going through her emotional being, how far she will allow him to go, and how far can her feelings for him extend as a live being.

As Sandra touches the folded hands of the male corpse in the casket at the Wallis Funeral Home you can see the "corpse" breathing; his suit jacket is moving up and down in a breathing motion. See more »
When you die, your life... flashes, and you disintegrate, radiating energy. When a thing turns into its opposite, when love becomes hate, there are always sparks.

This movie is by far the most beautiful movie I have ever seen to date. If you like dark or Gothic movies, this is for you!
The acting and story line is brilliant. I thought about this movie for weeks after I watched It.
I like things like Six Feet Under, and morgue movies & TV shows. This film was excellent. How someone can be so fixated on one thing, makes it so beautiful.
I might be sick to enjoy it by reading what the other persons comment said but it's not sick. These things do happen and this storyline is really interesting. Okay so you may not want see or hear about sleeping with corpses but if you look past that, you'll see the real beauty of the movie.
I recommend this movie. You will not be disappointed!
