This Thursday get ready for a scary, fun time with the Shudder Original, The Mortuary Collection. This film is a horror anthology that is the feature debut from writer/director Ryan Spindell. If you like classic films like Creepshow or classic television like Tales from the Crypt, your in for a good time. The film stars beloved actor Clancy Brown as an eccentric mortician who keeps track of the variety of deaths that come through his doors. But when a young drifter, played by Caitlin Custer, applies for a job there, she learns about the strange history of the town through a series of twisted tales that are more terrifying than the last.
Thanks to Shudder, I had the opportunity to check out this film ahead of time. I think what surprised me the most about it was how much fun I had watching it. Spindell does a great job at pacing the film well which takes us on a horrific ride that culminates with a satisfying ending. Brown plays Montgomery Dark, who delivers a lot more personality than I had expected. It comes out a lot, thanks to the chemistry with Custer’s character, Sam, whose character despite seeming like a total opposite as the Dark, might be more of a handful than he expects. Little do they both know that their meeting will change things forever.
