The undertaker and his youthful pals!
8 February 2006 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Four adventurous teenage boys break into to local mortuary as a prank but coincidentally stumble upon a devilish conspiracy! Apparently, the town's odd mortician collaborates with the doctor in order to increase the weekly amount of funerals and they split the profits of the expensive burial services. When one of the boys' fathers becomes a victim, the gang decides to videotape the mortician during the execution of his fiendish crimes. This is another terrifically light-headed "Tales from the Crypt" episode with a rather ingenious premise and an overload of macabre humor. Especially the gory make-up effects of this episode are memorable, since they include a lot of unorthodox embalming techniques! The mortician (a fantastically over-the-top performance by John Glover) for example smashes the face of a corpse with a hammer and eats his pizza over a cut-open chest. The four teenagers give away surprisingly good performances, especially James Marsden and Jonathan Quan! You might still recognize his face as he was Indiana Jones heroic little helper in "The Temple of Doom".
