Editorial Reviews

The 1980s retro horror classic! Young and easily frightened 16-year old Heather is called to stay with her grandmother in the hopes of helping her turn an old funeral home into a bed-and-breakfast. But strange happenings and unexplained murders around the home quickly make this vacation spot a ""dead-and-breakfast"" - with no answers as to who or what is causing all the death. Well-executed gloomy thriller in the Hitchcock vein.

I received my copy of Funeral Home which I must say I find to be a very under rated lost gem from the 80's with excellent atmosphere and a creepiness that is sustained throughout the film. That being said, I have been consistently dissapointed with the various dvd editions that have been released for this film because they are obviously merely vhs imports with no remastering. I was hoping this release would be an official remastered release with good picture/audio quality. Unfortunately, I immediately realized from the opening credits that this is one of the worst transfers I have ever had the displeasure of viewing. The picture quality is at times unwatchable with large red lines appearing across the picture, particularly in the night scenes.

This movie deserves an official re-mastered release. It is an exceptional entry from a nostalgic era when horror movies were a pleasure to watch due to their creepy atmosphere and errie music, even despite their low budget origins. I long for the day when a reputable company can rescue this title from the public domain and release an official version that fans of this film deserve.

The only positive thing I can say about this purchase is that at least the company used the original poster for the dvd cover art. This has always been one of my favorite classic covers from the 80's and I wish more companies would realize that true collectors of these films would like to have the original cover art rather than the cheap looking re-done covers many films utilize these days to make the films appear more modern but only accomplish dissapointing the true fans who purchase these titles in the first place.

WARNING!!! Do not buy this DVD!!!

Funeral Home is an awesome film, but this DVD makes 10th generation bootleg copies look great. The rip-off artists at CFS Releasing have simply copied the old Paragon pan-and-scan VHS video; you can even see the copy protection line travel from the bottom to the top of the screen throughout the entire film. Seriously!!!

There is no detail on the actors' faces; they just look like formless blobs. When there is any action on screen, the picture jumps and looks like a double, triple and quadruple exposure, especially during the night scenes.

Companies like CFS and Cheezy Flicks should be banned from selling their cruddy products on Amazon or at least forced to place labels on their DVDs warning potential buyers about the terrible picture quality.

I wonder if there is an online Better Business Bureau that I can report CFS Releasing to?

Yeah the DVD might be crap but I'd still recommend this "lost gem" for many reasons: 1) It's fun 2) The death scenes are setup 3) The score isn't that bad.

It does have a few problems. For one it's predictable, the "twist" ending did not fool me. At times it can be slow but the lead which is a pretty girl ,Lesleh Donaldson, is very talented and manages to carry the film very well. She's a girl working at a funeral home with her Grandma looking for her Grandfather, and a bunch of murders which seem to point back at home start happening.

An ok 80's film. Definitely fun to watch with popcorn and soda.

It's evident once the film starts, that no amount of restoration or effort was put into this DVD release from CFS; the company responsible for the horrible bootleg video/audio quality. I'll admit that I own some poor quality budget DVD's, but this has to be one of the worst I've ever seen. The source material for this release must have come from a worn out bootleg VHS, collecting dust in the basement of a Funeral Home.

The video image is plagued with speckling, debris and annoying lines that fill the TV screen throughout the film, way to much for any fan of this movie to tolerate. The colors are pretty much washed out and the print is way too dark. The movie is barely viewable in my opinion and this review should serve as a warning to any fan of this movie. Buyer Beware!

I've always regarded "Funeral Home" as an underrated creepy Canadian classic from the 1980's and I was super excited when my copy finally arrived. When I looked on Amazon on the day of release, it said the film was out of stock; I thought this was a good thing. Sadly my excitement quickly went away the second I put the DVD into my player. Some things should remain buried and this poor effort from CFS is one of them. My copy is already on its way back to Amazon.

The plot was ok, but it dragged on too much. Could have made it more interesting. Liked the ending. Probably wouldn't watch it again, but I would recommend it to anyone who likes suspense movies. If you liked Psycho, you'll probably like it, except it does drag on too much.

I love the film, but so disappointed with the DVD transfer. It doesn't matter which one you get either, because I purchased a later release. They are all the same. The only good thing about the whole thing is the newer version I have has the original artwork and tagline which is way cool. The transfer looks like it comes from the very worst condition possible VHS tape. I wouldn't have a problem with it coming from a VHS tape, if they would have found a very good condition copy. The DVD releases of this are plagued with hum bar lines that go from up to down the screen, and really show in night scenes. Also, it has severe motion problems making the whole transfer really blurry when motion happens. Not that it is really clear when its not either tho. If you have a really good copy of the Paragon release on VHS, keep that or transfer it to a disc. It will be much better than this translation. I would recommend getting the Paragon VHS release over this. 4 star movie, .0000001 star DVD release
