A truly strange but funny film
12 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watched this with some friends. Found it most useful for ridicule, a la MST 3K.

A teenage student (who appears to be 30) and a teacher for whatever reason agree to participate in a drug trial locked into a clinic with a confused doctor (Flight of the Concords' Bret McKenzie), an insane nurse, and, as it turns out, a family of ghosts looking for revenge. They experience hallucinations and explore the mystery of how the ghosts died.

The movie is laugh out loud hilarious with the three main cast member of Flight of the Concords popping in and out randomly. The mystery makes no sense. The sexual relationship between the girl and the teacher would be creepy were she not clearly about as old as he is. The climax is ridiculously artificial.

Basically, grab a beer and make fun of Diagnosis Death and you can have a good time. Take it seriously, and you'll be lost.
