This is not brilliant film-making by any stretch, and some of the smaller roles (especially those of the police detective and the bullies) were hammy and unprofessional. But I was struck by the interesting Harold and Maude meets Apt Pupil vibe, and the way that the story was propelled by relationships and personalties rather than--as happens too often in horror--mere events.
I will even give "Creamation" credit for setting up a memorable final "line," the answer to a crossword puzzle clue that fits beautifully. I'm not sure I would feel that I'd gotten good value if I'd paid more than, say, $10 for this movie, but if you can rent or stream it, you might find it suprisingly diverting and engaging.
Nothing too bloody, just the usual red dyed corn syrup splattered in a non-forensically accurate manner. The acting by Dourif carries the movie, but then he has had decades to hone this particular portrayal given the number of horror and crime acting jobs he's had.
This movie has content that kids shouldn't watch.
