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>

Janos Blasko (Ron Ford) and Pratt Borokof (Tim Sullivan) are two feuding horror actors who take their battle beyond the grave in "Hollywood Mortuary". Aided by a psychotic, washed-up makeup-artist who dabbles in Brazillian Voodoo rituals on the side, the two deceased Terrors of Tinseltown are resurrected to wreak havoc on an unsuspecting populace. Ford and Sullivan just can't be beat here. The two have a very natural chemistry that really helps the volley of insults between them fly. As the makeup-artist gone bad, Randal Malone turns in an impressive performance. In truth, everything about this movie works. A lot of great one-liners are peppered throughout the script, as well as some really bad ones (delivered, ironically, by a stand-up comedian). Possibly the best low-budget horror-comedy ever made. Certainly the best I've seen.

As others have stressed, I will affirm: Go out of your way to find this movie. You will NOT be disappointed !
