While everything else is falling apart around him in a city, The Mortician(Method Man) goes to work dutifully and punctually, even with all the threats and violence, while taking special interest in one dead body. As far as live ones go, he has little interest except that of a friendly prostitute and grateful customers for his taxidermy work. So, as you can imagine, good help can be hard to find, as Noah(EJ Bonilla) has to work in the morgue as a condition of his parole.

"The Mortician" has some of the elements of a decent B-thriller, starting with the title character's look and the urban decay all around him that is almost but not quite apocalyptic which I was thinking at first could be metaphorically New Orleans or Detroit before learning the movie was actually filmed in New Orleans. But then there is the impossibly bucolic small town that serves as a resolution for a weak psychological subplot. Otherwise, the movie's main mystery plays out in the most perfunctory manner possible.
