I always say it's all about whether you like Hooper movies or not. Mortuary like Toolbox murders is like his past efforts all in a god way. Hooper is director that always mixes dark comedy with horror. Mixes well. It's quite an impressing, well-arranged. Special make-up is compelling and the CGI's are O.K. either except one scene. We'll be back to it at the end. A family moves to a new place near graveyard. Locals believe it's a cursed place. Yes, it is. You will quickly realize this is not going to turn out a scary movie, but that's not what Hooper was after I believe. It's hard to comment telling you all my impression, in fact I can't precisely say what I really loved in here, but it was like "Texas chainsaw massacre 2", "Funhouse" and partially "Toolbox murders". The acting was just what I wanted to see. The jokes are excellent and characters are absolutely natural. Especially I enjoyed the little girl screams, they were funny. The scene with her giving candy to undead Bobby Fowler was like the classic one from "Texas chainsaw massacre 2" with Bill Johnson trying to put the leather mask on Caroline Williams. In general imagine what it would be like if you take "Fantasy" (might not be the right word), "dark comedy" and a bit of "horror". I love this movie. Hooper's done a nice job. Right now I'm out to get his "Night terrors", see if I can get the DVD. 8 out of 10! I have no gripe.
