Storyline

Two young newlyweds, geeky Edward and innocent but alluring Samantha, turn up at a majestic and remote country house hotel for their honeymoon, which has been taken over by the high-spirited members of an Undertakers' Annual Convention. Their attempts at romance are quickly dampened as they become helplessly embroiled in an intriguing whodunit when the Head of the Funeral Directors' Association dies under bizarre circumstances. Featuring a top-notch cast including Nick Moran (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Rik Mayall (The Young Ones), Steve Huison (The Full Monty), and Hugh Fraser (TV's Poirot), you'll die laughing with this hilarious and dark romantic comedy!

I laughed and loved it from beginning to end
16 November 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

"Chaos and Cadavers" is the funniest film I've seen, and I've seen many in my 79 years. It has perfect and remarkable casting from the wondrous sympathetic leads down to the smallest weirdos as extras. It's a delightful balance between a touching love story and the spooky, hilarious things that happen to the romantic leads when their private honeymoon castle in invaded by an undertaker's convention. The husband, whose fear of death is flawlessly portrayed by rising British star, Nick Moran, becomes involved in a mysterious murder among some conniving undertakers. His innocent, yet alluring, wife, played by Keeley Hawes, made this viewer admire her and desire her! Beautifully directed by first time director-writer Niklaus Hilber, he and co-writer DrewBird have created a script that is both intelligent and believable against atrocious and outlandishly gruesome story twists and turns. The unobtrusive cinematography adds to the believability, while the charming score balances the film's romantic, humorous, and terrifying elements. This movie deserves a big audience! Find it, see it, and laugh yourself silly!
