Lindsay Finch: Don't you understand? I said, I'm not going.

Better than you might expect
1 October 1998 | by (Mt Pleasant, MI) – See all my reviews

Just having a film with the subject of necrophilia would turn most viewers off, yet this film does a fairly "tasteful", if the term can be used in this context, job with the subject matter. The films major liability is a story which swings between chilling horror and sappy 70's romance. But, the film is well-directed and for those who decide to sit all the way through to the surprise ending, probably won't be terribly disappointed.
