Storyline

Oliver is destined for an uneventful life until the day he and his brother Jackie breeze into town to attend the funeral of their estranged father. To everyone's bewilderment, Oliver inherits his father's estate-a funeral home. Oliver learns from the handyman Henry that the home is on the verge of bankruptcy. That night, his life gets increasingly complicated when he takes a drunken drive with the bewitching mortician Roberta and collides with a hiker. Roberta cleverly disguises the fatality as an accident, providing Oliver with his first paying customer and launching the duo on a merciless killing spree that evolves from accidental to intentional. As they scramble to stay out of jail and keep the funeral home in business, the body count rises steeply and their victims expire in increasingly bizarre and brutal "accidents". Trying to remain one step ahead of the local law (Roberta's father, Chief of Police Knickle, and her boyfriend, Constable Richmond), Oliver is torn between the ... Written by Anonymous

Amateurish Dark Comedy
28 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

This dark comedy lack the require style to be quirky or dark enough. It's a Canadian indie but director/writer Chaz Thorne just don't have the skills to pull this off.

Jay Baruchel plays the aimless young man Oliver Whynacht who inherits his father's funeral home. Rose Byrne plays the funeral home worker Roberta Knickle. The business is on the verge of bankruptcy because there's a lack of dying people in town. In order to save it, the two work together to start killing people so that they can work on their funerals.

There's a definite lack of energy in the shooting style. As hard as the actors try, they just couldn't fill the lack of pace. It does pick up later on as more and more people are killed. But it doesn't save the movie.
