"Rutili relies on his primitive resourcefulness to create purposeful magic." --LA Times

Product Description

This 2 Disc Collector's Edition is packed with Bonus Features, including all the special features from the original, as well as original artwork from Califone, exclusive music tracks, and much more! Zel is a fortune teller. She works out of her century-old house removing clients' aches and pains, advising gamblers, and channeling cranky spirits for a quick check in with their loved ones. Zel is very good at her chosen profession, but also receives some unique assistance. For as long as she can remember she has shared her home with a group of ghosts -- a priest, a bride, a mute child, some washed up vaudevillians and a noisy, sight-impaired group of musicians, who pass on incredible knowledge and abilities from beyond the world of the living. All goes on at the family homestead as it has for generations, until a mysterious light appears in the woods. The ghosts suddenly realize they are trapped, and forge a rebellion, tormenting Zel with all the aggravation and insanity they can muster. And when Zel uncovers the origins of these spirits, she is forced to choose between her comfortable if strange existence and letting go of the only family she has ever known.

3.0 out of 5 stars I trapped the funeral singers August 5, 2010
Format:DVD
One thing that people will never grow tired of speculating about is death. What happens to us? Where do we go? What is waiting for us?

"All My Friends Are Funeral Singers" never really asks those questions. Instead, this delicate, dreamlike film focuses on a house full of "funeral ghost" ghosts, and a young lady who lives alongside them. The first half is a meandering, messy nonplot, but it later gels into a haunting meditation on

Zel (Angela Bettis) lives in her late grandmother's old house, but not alone. For many years, she has lived with several ghosts, including a suicidal bride, a flapper, a randy priest, an embittered actor, a blind band that plays music all day, and a silent little girl. By day, Zel works as a psychic and a medium, while the ghosts meander about their own business.

Then one day, the ghosts see a bright light outside, and attempt to go into it... you know, the way dead people are supposed to. But they're unable to leave the house. They jump to the conclusion that Zel has somehow trapped them inside the house, and decide to make her life a misery until she releases them... but the truth is rarely so simple.

The first half of "All My Friends Are Funeral Singers" is kind of a mess -- everybody just meanders around aimlessly, chitchatting and occasionally doing little dances. And while the direction is lovely, we have these interludes where we just see the ghostly musicians diddling around on various instruments.

But once the ghosts demand their freedom, their story quietly gels together with Zel's, blossoming into a soft, bittersweet little finale. Director Tim Rutili wraps the entire movie in a sort of blurry twilight atmosphere, with wobbly camerawork and little superstitions that pop up between scenes.
