Audience Reviews for Mortuary

Significant only for a young Bill Paxton playing weird rather well.

Paxton's great in this mediocre horror. As a side note, someone in film school remade the final scene of this for his short film, and when I called him on it, even stating that I saw the VHS of Morturary in his apartment he still denied it. Actually, that's not a very interesting aside, sorry.

Bill Paxton is the weird kid working with his pa at the mortuary while a young woman looks into the odd death of her father, which leads into all kinds of weird shit.

Watchable horror flick, but was more one of those things that I had always been curious about than a 'lost' classic or some thing of that nature.
