a great first effort!
24 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dave and Becky are a brother-sister team hailing from southern WV who have some wonderful, awful, morbid ideas running around in their talented heads!Keep up the good work!Now about that mortician.........gimme,gimme,gimme!Love you guys!

A nice adaptation of a Stephen King short story. It has just the right balance of things believable and things you don't want to believe but deep in your gut you know.They used locals for the most part, due to "scheduling difficulties" with stars which shall not be named.If you ever get a chance to see this short, do so by all means.With the right monetary backing, these guys can really go places!
