Critic's Review Heading

NY Post Full Review
Poor Even Dennis Quaid's uncharacteristic hamming as a mad mortician in a small Texas town can't save this silly, scare-free horror film briefly haunting theaters en route to entombment on home video.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Ely Vaughn (Dennis Quaid) is a pillar of the community in tiny Smithville, Texas. The town's mortician, Ely has been revered since his days as the high school's star quarterback. But since the tragic death of his wife two years earlier, Ely has withdrawn from his neighbors, while local teens spread stories of supernatural goings on at Ely's mansion - which is also the funeral home. When high school friends Travis (Tony Oller), Abby (Aimee Teegarden), Brian (Steven Lunsford) and Danny (Devon Werkheiser) decide to check out the rumors, they are shocked to see the supposedly grieving widower dancing with a mysterious woman behind the curtains of his bedroom window.

Their curiosity aroused, the four teens wait for Ely to leave the house before breaking in to investigate. But instead of finding clues to the woman's identity, they stumble on a grotesque, long-hidden secret. Before they can flee the scene, Ely returns and surprises them in the act. Travis watches in horror as the supposedly upstanding citizen brutally murders Danny and later convinces the police it was an accident.

Unwilling to let his friend's murderer go unpunished, Travis enlists Abby's help in another reconnaissance mission to the Vaughn home, but he has underestimated the depth of Ely's need to hold onto his secrets. When they trigger a trap he has set for them, Travis is wounded fleeing the scene and Abby disappears. Unable to convince the authorities that Abby is in mortal danger, Travis finds himself locked in a desperate battle of wits with a wily psychotic killer who has little left to lose.
