Mortal Remains is a tale of revenge, forgiveness, and loyalty told during a weekend camping trip where two rival groups of teenagers are inexorably brought together, linked by their mutual role in the disappearance of a young girl.
Several years ago, a sleepy Pacific Northwest town was terrorized by a skull-faced maniac with a thirst for blood. It seemed no man, woman or child was safe from the North Bend Reaper, a crafty serial killer who became infamous for stealing patches of clothing from his bloodied victims. Despite a massive manhunt, the Reaper was never found. Fast forward to the present - a group of actors try to cash in on the town's notoriety by hosting an interactive murder mystery party based on the unsolved killings. After isolating their guests at an abandoned summer camp, they come to the terrifying conclusion that someone in their midst is killing them off one by one. Has someone chosen to continue the North Bend Reaper's bloody legacy? Or has the Reaper himself come back for one last dance with death? Written by
The character of "Dreighton" the host of the murder mystery game had originally been written as an African American. He was described as an over the top "voodoo priest" with a skull painted on his face. After seeing several actors for the part the filmmakers were not happy with their choices. Something was missing. When Benjamin Gutknecht (Benjamin G Arthur) came in to read for the part of "Andrew" they soon realized his commanding presence and large stature would suit the "Dreighton" character better. Soon as he was cast the screenplay was re-tooled and the make up re-designed as an homage to "Alice Cooper/KISS". The Dreighton make up and costume took an hour each day to apply. He wears the make up for 70% of the movie. Director Dan Zachary's younger sister Angie Zachary plays the role of "Lisa" the naive goody two shoes camper. Dan also appears as one of the redneck's chasing the reaper through the woods in a flashback sequence. He can also be heard as the operator on the cell phone in the woods and as the radio announcer at the end of the film. Co-producer and co-writer John Knox plays "James" the perverted creep of the group. See more »
Carefull....Watching this could make you sick from how crappy it is...
Dialogue: Actors couldn't even say lines this bad with a straight face. Acting: Well what can you say... I think the acting was the same quality you would find from picking up unemployed strangers on the side of the road and giving them their lines 5 minutes before filming.
Film quality: Handy cam quality, fuzzy, out of focus, as bad or worse than that seen in Monster Man.
Painted host for the "Slasher flick" weekend: Sorry but your every attempt to be ominous or scary would have made me laugh had I been in the group.
Overall: Don't waste your time... not worth the slot it would take from your video rental.
Don't get me wrong, I love Indie Horror and hats off to these folks for trying but there is LOTS of room for improvement.
