This anthology movie is a five year project, in which the crew shot each segment at a pace of one a year. The first segment was "Boogie With the Undead", which was started in 2003 and finished in 2004. The second segment was "The Devil's Due At Midnight" started in the fall of 2004 and finished in 2005. In 2006, the crew waited most of the year for the main host, Forrest J. Ackerman, to recover fully from an operation. He ended up shooting at the end of the year. To finish up the project faster both "Cry of The Mummy" and "Her Morbid Desires" were shot at the same time. It took both years 2007 and 2008 for those to be completed. Thankfully, each segment took about a year, so there were no problems with actors aging, putting on weight, or losing their hair. All parts were then assembled together, making it a full length feature.
Dedicated to prominent production designer and art director Harold Michelson, who was a mentor to Edward L. Plumb and reviewed the crypt designs of art director L.J. Dopp for this film. After Michelson approved the drawings, Dopp went on to direct a crew to build the 14 foot high crypt. Michelson was the storyboard artist on Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds", which featured Tippi Hedren (one of the stars of "Her Morbid Desires", the first segment of "The Boneyard Collection"). Michelson was also the visual consultant and actor in "Graveyard Shift", which starred Brad Dourif (who appears in "The Boneyard Collection"'s last segment, "The Devil's Due at Midnight").
A film anthology that attempts a new unique idea in each of its four segments. HER MORBID DESIRES has a 1 1/2 minute musical interlude that features a group of vampires in a Queen's throne room: two play with an Ouija board: one practices with a sword; two perform a dance with an unsuspecting victim; and a nurse siphons blood from a victim for a waitress's blood cocktail. Other attendees include a belly dancer, an elderly opium smoking vampire rocking in a chair, and a girl vampire rising from her sleep. The Queen observes all these festivities while her human "pet" sits at her feet. CRY OF THE MUMMY features the title character in a TV commercial and trying to do a stand-up routine. There are two faux movie trailers: BOOGIE WITH THE UNDEAD is shot like a rock music video, and THE DEVIL'S DUE AT MIDNIGHT invites the audience to a party with a wild guest list.
