Movie Info

Nora (Elizabeth Mannino) is a waitress who impulsively marries a strange man who arrives at her café in a limo and asks for her hand. She leaves with Henry (David Gregory) that very night and is whisked away to a little town called Newbury where she learns that her husband is a mortician and they'll both be living at the Cox Funeral Home. She is determined to accept his profession, though she is disturbed by the fact that there are no clocks anywhere in the house and that Henry insists she stay perfectly still and quiet during their lovemaking. When a local girl is killed in an auto accident, Nora spies on the secret preparation room and is devastated to discover a weird necrophilic cult with Henry at the center. With the help of the dead girl's brother (Adam Wahl), Nora tries to expose their sick society before she becomes the next victim, but soon it becomes clear that there's no one in Newbury she can trust.

The low-budget horror/comedy is a sicko film, that's fit for the dead.
