Storyline

In Texas in the late '60s, the Whit family meets for the funeral of grandfather Sparta. This, however, is no normal funeral, and the Whits are no normal family. Young L'il Sparta spies on the corpse and sees his grandmother involved in macabre and sinister rituals. His parents go and collect Aunt Miranda from the rest home where she has been locked away because of her part in a family scandal, while the tension between father and uncle over money matters is sky-high. In the stables, the camel belonging to the deceased has an attack of nerves, and after he's been calmed down, the child meets the grandfather's ghost who recounts all the family tales.

Really, Texans?? Really!
13 August 2017 | by mande-52712See all my reviews

I can't believe out of all the reviews I read through, and some were from Texans, that no one mentions; or wonders where the hell camels are in Texas other than a zoo. Who do u know with a barn that has a camel in it in Texas? I thought this was the funniest moment of this movie.And one review mentioned someone in the production crew had a fair understanding of TX folklore. Hahahaha.
