Storyline

Denise has been slaving away as an obit writer for the Tribune, dying for her chance to become a reporter. One of the tribune's writers has recently died of old age, and Denise jumps at the opportunity to take over his job, tactlessly hounding her boss, ROGER, in the midst of the funeral. That night, unable to sleep, Denise goes for a late-night jog...where she stumbles upon a dead body and promptly faints from the shock. When she comes to, amidst all the police activity, Denise spots SIMON, her rival and one-time lover, performing his new reporting duties. The next day, Denise's friend and coworker, LUKE, informs her of the name of last night's victim. Shocked, Denise realizes that she saw the deceased's obituary in a newspaper last night, before the time of death. But when she tries to track down the article, it's nowhere to be found. Soon, Denise's computer displays a mysterious message: another obit. But when she tries to print she ends up with blank paper, and the message erases ... Written by Kevin Commins

The Dead Column
19 October 2013 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Someone looking like our blonde star is in a mental facility for adult women, young boys and a few staffers. Clearly disturbed, she decides to commit suicide. Because we leave it for so long, this opening gets "Obituary" off to a confusing start. Eventually, it is explained. After the credits, attractive Josie Bissett (as Denise Wilcox) introduces herself through narration. She's stuck in a dead end job as an obituary writer. What's weird is that people die after she gets pop-ups on her computer alerting her about their deaths. Most people would assume someone was messing with them, but Bissett considers the messages omens. Some kind of voodoo doll is also involved. Bissett investigates. Male companionship is available with attractive co-workers Craig Olejnik (as Luke) and Grant Nickalls (as Simon). Their roles are obvious and the story winds up following an all too familiar path, with too much of the "shaky camera" look leading the way.

**** Obituary (7/23/06) John Bradshaw ~ Josie Bissett, Craig Olejnik, Grant Nickalls, Joe Pingue
