Storyline

Two young newlyweds, geeky Edward and innocent but alluring Samantha, turn up at a majestic and remote country house hotel for their honeymoon, which has been taken over by the high-spirited members of an Undertakers' Annual Convention. Their attempts at romance are quickly dampened as they become helplessly embroiled in an intriguing whodunit when the Head of the Funeral Directors' Association dies under bizarre circumstances. Featuring a top-notch cast including Nick Moran (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels), Rik Mayall (The Young Ones), Steve Huison (The Full Monty), and Hugh Fraser (TV's Poirot), you'll die laughing with this hilarious and dark romantic comedy!

Fun with funerals....
5 December 2008 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

"Chaos and Cadavers" brings life to what traditionally has been mostly dead ground for comedy. The idea of having a newlywed couple spending their honeymoon at a hotel booked solid with a mortician's convention is inspired. The film comes across as a combination of Woody Allen-type frantic situational humor, and Paul Bartel-type black comedy. "Chaos and Cadavers" should rightfully take it's place on the very short list of enjoyable films that use death and the funeral industry for laughs. "Mortuary Academy", "Drop Dead Sexy", "The Undertaker's Wedding", "Just Buried", and "Undertaking Betty" immediately come to mind. I recommend seeking out "Chaos and Cadavers". - MERK
