Storyline

Young adult brothers Jackie and Oliver Whynacht head to small town Elder's Bluff for their father Rollie Whynacht's funeral, he a man they haven't seen since they were children or really ever knew. Part of what they didn't know is his business, he who owned and ran a funeral home. Four similarly aged people are convened to view the video will - Jackie, Ollie, Rollie's dumb blonde trophy wife Luanne, and Rollie's mortician/the town's coroner Roberta Knickle - they who all learn that Ollie, in the proverbial pure luck of the draw, inherits everything, most specifically the funeral home. Subsequently in private with the lawyer, Ollie learns that Rollie rigged the draw to choose him, who Rollie felt, as the always nervous lost soul of the four which has not changed since he was a child, needed something like the funeral home to focus his abilities. In speaking with the funeral home staff who solely includes Roberta and Jack-of-all-trades Henry Sanipass, Ollie further learns that the ... Written by Huggo

True Alfred Hitchcockian dark comedy thriller.
26 July 2008 | by barrywoodSee all my reviews

Jay Baruchel plays a nerd and he plays it well. He has nosebleeds if he's stressed out so of course when he inherits a funeral home, he gets many nose bleeds. The movie was filmed in Windsor and Halifax, Nova Scotia. The camera shots are wonderful. But wait: the plot (or plots?) is convincing and I must warn those who are easily grossed out not to watch this movie. I hooted and cringed all in a matter of minutes. You'll see what I mean when you see certain scenes. I haven't seen a movie that is as original as when I'd last seen of one Alfred Hitchcock movies. So its true: this is a "very" dark comedy. If it was released by Paramount, talk show hosts would be talking about it. But once again, I warn you that certain scenes are beyond gross. I rate "Just Buried" highly. Spend the ten bucks and go see it for yourself, while it's still in Canadian theaters.
