Deerhaven has been burdened by disappearances for more than two decades and local officials have come up empty as no trace of the missing have ever been found. An eccentric psychiatrist with questionable credentials comes to town implicating the local mortician, Henry Parks. Claiming to be Henry's former doctor from a facility where Henry had been institutionalized, Dr. Gronig suggests that the mortician may not have been suitable for release and may be using his father's parlor as a cover for deeper, darker things. During the same week four young college students plan for the local Friday night bash, but Monte has bigger plans for them. He wants to do something different and takes them from party to the local mortuary for a kinky midnight treat. The problem is that some of the doctor's implications may have been true and for Monte, Sky, Tina and Tony, this will be a night they will never forget. That is if they survive.Written by
Leon Acord shot this film while simultaneously appearing in the world premiere of Ronnie Larsen's stage play "A Few Gay Men", driving back and forth from the film's set in Marin County to Theatre Rhinoceros in San Francisco, then back to the set for night shoots, for two weeks. He describes this period as "one of the happiest times of my life". See more »
I wish I could give this zero but IMDb won't allow us to give that rating. OK so here are the warning signs to this film.... 1- The film has been retitled. I hate when this happens because we all know that when a film is so bad the distributors like to change the name of the film to trick people in renting it a second time without knowing the dreck they initially watched. Oh I guess these days it would be more downloading or vod rather than renting. 2- The original title was Mortuary which would be the 10 to the power of 8 times this title has been used and I believe Tobe Hooper directed a film ( which wasn't good either ) the same year as this one and called it mortuary. This makes me think that the Director of this film was hoping that renters/buyers/video store owners would confuse this one with the Tobe Hooper film and purchase it just on name value. 3- There are NO external reviews on IMDb for this film. How can this be possible!!!! Reviews these days are ubiquitous, how can not 1 person in the world review this title. I will tell you why because this is an insult on a 1st grade students intelligence. God forsaken awful!!!! 4- This gets a eye popping 6.9/10 on IMDb by 70users or so or should I say 70 people that were told by the director to weight in on this trash and make it look good for others to view. Judging by 2 user reviews and no external reviews.....Nobody fell for it Mr.Director. 5- Full frontal nudity in the first couple of scenes obviously there to draw in all the lecherous men on tap. Here is the problem that was it for the full frontal nudity because this " actress " realized she wasn't getting paid for this dreck of a film.
Now this film is on full display as Final Remains that I bought of Ebay for $2.00 bucks. well guess what the final remains from any creature breathing on this planet looks better than this atrocious wreck. Horrible acting, risible dialogue, the audio sounds like it came from some shoe string 70's VHS bootleg horror film and finally the f/x are from a pre school art class. Please avoid ....oooh wait no one has watched this yet. Anyway its time for me to lower this collusion that states this film is a 6.9.
