Editorial Reviews


"Mortuary is one of Tobe Hooper's best films! The man is a horror genius!" --Michael Hein, Director of the New York City Horror Film Festival

Product Description

A Tobe Hooper Film. DVD Features include: Theatrical Trailer, Unrated Director's Commentary, Unrated behind the scenes featurette with Tobe Hooper, "Inside the Graveyard". When the Doyle family moves to a small town in California, they plan on starting a new life...perhaps a strange choice, seeing as this new life entails running the long-abandoned Fowler Funeral Home and cemetary. The locals fear the place, and there are whispers around town that not only are the grounds haunted, but that the Fowler boy, who wore a burial shroud to hide his hideously deformed face, still lives in one of the tombs there. The Doyles discover all too soon that the gossip is true. Someting lurks beneath the Fowler estate--someting that raises the dead from long-forgotten graves...something that feeds upon death itself.

2.0 out of 5 stars forgettable waste of a tasteless mess.... February 15, 2008
I picked this movie up quick on a Friday nite,(in a hurry, big mistake) a Tobe Hooper flick with
a little horror to it, right from the start I could tell this one was
going to be a struggle. I love B movie horror flicks, I love tacky, low
budget but I just wasn't very impressed with anything from "Mortuary", from the house(mortuary), the characters, the black spreading growth, the diner, the graveyard, the police, the pit, the dead
and worst the living, they all were rotten. God, I hope I didn't give
anything a way to spoil. I've seen most of this
in one movie or another, they just threw it all together. Cheap, lame and not recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Texas chainsaw slumber party May 26, 2006
This is an intensely boring story of a possessed mortuary, and a family that take over its operation. The initial scenes are the best, as the old owner hands over the keys while slowly pointing out the hidden flaws of the old house he has just sold them. There is no more of this over the top sick humor though, just mundane teens getting killed for being sexually active [a timeless subtext of horror].

More than a few scenes seemed designed to remind of audiences of Poltgeist, an 80s classic. People dont remember that film was also Hooper, and his best work, since Spielberg took all the credit for it back in 84 as producer.

Tobe Hooper directed Tx Chainsaw Massacre, the original, using a then clever device: make it look like a documentary/real life events. It is hilarious that people thought the new Chainsaw was based on real events, simply bc the 70s version was a bit deceptive.

Wow, this film just does not seem worthy of the director when looking at his early and middle works.

3.0 out of 5 stars Graveyard Babies(All Got Rabies) April 17, 2006
I've always loved Tobe Hooper, and I've stuck with him through highs and lows. The guy's a schlock B movie director and actually seems proud of that fact. He never seemed to have aspirations like Raimi and Jackson of hitting the big time, he seems happy doing what he does. I think Tobe got screwed somewhat though. When your first film is the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, you've set the bar pretty high, and everyone's gonna expect all of your films from there on out to be just as good if not better than that. Hooper's had to live with this curse for years. Hell, you ever seen a coverbox for a Hooper film that didn't say, "From the director of Texas Chainsaw Massacre"? It's got be tough considering all his films since then have been B exploitation flicks. Chainsaw was too, but people and critics seemed to only accept it one time around. Sure, he did hit the big time with Poltergeist, but I don't really count that coz that has Speilberg written all over it. The film would have been totally different if only Hooper had done it. Many schlocky films later we arrive at Mortuary. The problem with Mortuary isn't that it's a bad film coz it isn't, but because it's too much a product of the times. What I mean by that is that we live in a time when there are about eight billion direct to video horror films on the video store shelves. At least two seem to come out each week. Back in Hooper's heyday this wasn't so. Basically I'm saying that if Hooper's name wasn't on this film, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between this film and one of those countless others on the shelf. Sad, but true. Hooper seems to have gotten lost in an enormous pile of movies influenced by his own. It also seems as if Hooper has been forever banished to the direct to video arena. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Low budget horror fun May 31, 2006
This movie is a lot of fun to watch when you go in with a certain mindset. I noticed many other reviewers were disappointed in the quality of the special effects, etc. This is a low budget horror movie, without the slick Hollywood touches of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. I think they did this whole movie for a budget of what a cheap car costs. But if you keep that in mind and keep an open attitude, you'll find many delicious details.

The main villain isn't what you'd expect after reading the box and looking at the director's other films. There's a monster behind the scenes and that is what is really creepy (no I won't say more because I don't want to wreck the surprise when you watch it for yourself). The acting isn't the best in places, but it's not that bad either. The script is pretty good: funny, realistic, and flowing. But the best part about this whole film is the twist ending which had me jumping. I was pleasantly surprised that I was, well, surprised. Not often do I get caught off guard by a horror film, but this one managed that.

So keep an open mind and realize that this does not and will not look like a Hollywood release. It looks direct to DVD, but for a direct to DVD type movie, this one is pretty good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Graveyard Babies, Mouth-to-Mouth Gravy February 22, 2011
The chapter list for Mortuary includes the following: Graveyard Babies, Happy Mortician, Disgruntled Drivers, and Hearty Soup. That led me to start the movie in a MST3K mood. I'm pleased to say I was completely misled by this low-budget horror gem.

After the family patriarch dies, single-mother with horrid haircut moves her children cross-country to a creepy, dilapidated house situated on a prime piece of real estate between a backed up sewer repository and a morgue. Location, location, location. The house comes complete with all the real estate essentials: 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, church organ, flickering kitchen lights, stairs that creek on every step, bad CGI, sink water that has equal parts hydrogen and feces. You know, the standard stuff. But it's all good because she's the new mortician. But can she handle the strange occurrences at the graveyard? Will the mystery of local legend/mutant Bobby Fowler be uncovered?

Overall this is pretty good direct-to-DVD horror fare. The cast performs admirably. The female leads fulfill their primary role in horror: be hot. None over or under act, which isn't normally par for the course in second rate horror. The budget is clearly miniscule, so the CGI is acceptably subpar. Well-executed gore is a suitable replacement anyway. And the gore is plentiful. Nasty, too. Mix zombies together with Poltergeist and you've got a good idea about this movie. Pretty good stuff if you ask me. Even the score is a decent blend violin and piano reminiscent of early Friday the 13th aura.

I'm not sure how I feel about the Goonies meets Star Wars meets Indiana Jones ending - trust me, not as good as it sounds - but the positive outweighs the negative and horror fans will be pleased.
