It's sick. It's sexy, it's MORTUARY ACADEMY and it's not for the squeamish! A bawdy black comedy with a campy all-star cast, MORTUARY ACADEMY stars heartthrob Christopher Atkins (The Blue Lagoon) with Paul Bartel and Mary Woronov (the unforgettable stars of the cult classic Eating Raoul) in a sexy spoof of the mortuary business. Forced, along with his brother Sam, to graduate from the MortuaryAcademy in order to inherit his late uncle's $2 million estate, shy Max Grimm encounters the hilarious horrors of life after death. But when they learn that the corrupt Dr. Prescott (Bartel) has bled the once-lucrative school dry, the brothers Grimm enlist the help of their colorful classmates to resurrect a dead rock band and save the school. An outrageous mix of sexy sight-gags and campy humor makes MORTUARY ACADEMY the killer comedy of the year.

Paul Bartel and Mary Woronov represent the administration while a cast of colorful characters makes up the rest of the student body. The brothers are polar opposites in personality. One is willing to go with the flow while the other hates the idea and wants to be a real doctor (although no medical school will have him). The brothers and the administration face off and the other characters form their alliances until silly plots and complications bring the whole thing to a satisfying conclusion.
Bartel and Woronov are excellent. The movie is silly, only slightly dark at times, and just about what you would expect from such a comedy film. An unexpected plu is that Wolfman Jack plays a substantial role as the agent for a music group called Radio Werewolf. This is the sort of film I might have seen at a summer drive-in when it first came out. In other words it is silly, fun, and won't strain the brain too much while throwing in a fair bit of originality. Check it out.
