Storyline

There's a killer on the loose who preys on the homeless. Dale Sweeney is a recently fired reporter. He's approached by a homeless man named Robert who is accused of committing these murders. He tells Dale that he will give him the whole story with names to help prove his innocence if Dale will go the Grateful Homeless Cemetery and hang out until sunset then meet him after. Dale gets sidetracked by Jess Gilchrist, the spokesperson for the Grateful Homeless Society. By the time he meets up with Robert, he finds he has become the latest victim of the homeless killer. Dale is on his own to uncover the identity of the killer. Written by grrlpunk

A taste for homeless flesh. A ghouls feast!
16 March 2008 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

"Mournin'Mess" is another episode from season three that's well done and acted just right and the ending has another surprise twist. This episode also has good star power with Ally Walker, Rita Wilson, and Steven Weber. Weber stars as an alcoholic and low life sleazy womanizer who's latest story and mystery involves who is killing all of the city's homeless people. As one by one homeless people are turning up dead. Then a plan develops from a group of ex homeless people of a layaway society for homeless in you guessed it a cemetery! So go figure you may already know what's in store. The Weber characters sneaky reporter snoops around a little to much and to hard for his own good. As in the end his life becomes a big feast munched on by ghouls! Overall pretty well done and gory crypt episode.
