Storyline

By 1941, Pierce Jackson Dawn, the greatest make-up artist of the early 20th century, is considered washed-up. Pierce's mirror reflection warns him that he has been forgotten and must find work. Pierce brings some new film ideas to studio producer Leonard Schein, who pretends to humor him and then shouts for him to get out. Pierce's idea is to collaborate with the great rival horror actors Pratt Borokov and Janos Blasko. Blasko is "bloated by drugs," and a retired but still arrogant star, who, when flustered and angered by the importunate questions of an interviewer, accidentally overdoses in his kitchen. After consulting the Voodoo Priestess and hearing of Blasko's death, Pierce visits Pratt Borokov. Gardening in his yard, Borokov does not remember Pierce at first and then speaks disparagingly of horror movies. In fury, Pierce seizes the gardening shovel and beats Borokov to death. With the Voodoo Priestess's advice on black magic, Pierce secures a job at a mortuary, ostensibly to ... Written by Fiona Kelleghan <fkelleghan@aol.com>

Karloof & Lugosi would be proud of HOMAGE !
16 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ron Ford and Randal Malone have done an excellent job of paying tribute to their filmic heroes of fright.

Ray Biddle has done the world a great justice by contacting INDIE FLIX and setting them up as the re-release distributors,Fans can now actually buy 'HoMo' and not just boot-leg it from those awful VHS shorts and dreary Lindenmuth editions !

But, No extras,Maybe when it hits Blu-ray we can get some interviews with Randal Malone,We Deitrick or Ron Ford.

Still,Its good to see this rare film that is almost like a '90s 'Rocky Horror' Cult Following. http://www.indieflix.com/Films/HollywoodMortuary
