Movie Info

The Doyle family moves to rural California to start a new life; perhaps a strange choice because their new life takes on the form of running the long abandoned Fowler Brothers Funeral Home. The locals fear the place, and there are whispers around town that the land the home lies on is haunted. The Doyle family will soon discover that something lurks beneath the soil -- something that raises rotten corpses from their long forgotten graves and feeds on death itself.

Audience Reviews for Mortuary

Mortuary is one of those films were a once great horror director has clearly lost his touch. Tobe Hooper, known for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Salem's Lot, Poltergeist and other horror classics, directs this abomination. A film so awful that it has made me lose total faith in the director. This film had potential in being such a great film. Instead it ends up being an awful train wreck of a film that is one of the worst horror films in the genre. The whole picture looks cheaply made with poor effects. This film had a very good idea, but unfortunately due to a very poor script, it never takes off the ground. This was a painful film to watch. I think the saddest thing about this film is knowing that Tobe Hooper was once great, but like so many other horror talents, he clearly has lost his touch, and now makes unsatisfying horror films that are simply poorly constructed, and end up being unwatchable and not interesting. This is a film definitely not worth your time, and though it has an interesting story, don't be fooled as this film lacks anything effective to make the film really engaging and ultimately thrilling.Tobe Hooper has sunk to a new low with this one. This is simply one of the worst films in the once great director's career. I doubt he'll be able to direct anything consistent now. If you love Tobe Hooper, watch only his classic films. Mortuary is simply a poorly constructed film that doesn't deliver anything great for the viewer. As a whole, this is an awful film, one that should be avoided.

Directed by: Tobe Hooper. Starring: Dan Byrd, Denise Crosby, Stephanie Patton, Alexandra Adi. Cliche, after cliche....after cliche, god this movie infuriated me, I am a big Tobe Hooper fan, he did a brilliant job and showed a lot of potential for future films after he did The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist, since then he has gone downhill, but never in my mind did I think he would sink this low. Using a atrocious, cliched script, the film at 94 minutes, drags in too many places and uses cheap, cliched jump sequences for 'genuine scares' as Hollywood horror does nowadays to get the little girls screaming, mediocre acting (mainly from the little girl, who showed more talent then the rest of the actors), no real atmosphere and I hate to say it...bad direction. I just hope one day Tobe uses his head and gets back into gear, because its more talent gone to waste because of Hollywood.
