Plot Summary:
"The Doyle family moves to rural California to start a new life; perhaps a strange choice because their new life takes on the form of running the long abandoned Fowler Brothers Funeral Home. The locals fear the place, and there are whispers around town that the land the home lies on is haunted. The Doyle family will soon discover that something lurks beneath the soil-something that raises rotten corpses from their long forgotten graves and feeds on death itself."

Tobe Hooper re-teams with his Toolbox Murders crew for this ghoulish little tale about Lesley Doyle and her two kids, Jonathan and Jamie who move to a new town to take over the local mortuary after the death of her husband. The house is completely run down and Jonathan soon learns that the funeral home was previously owned by the Fowler family.

When Jonathan finds a job and some friends at the local Diner, he learns the history of creepy Bobby Fowler and the Mortuary. Local folks say thereís something in the soil and that Bobbyís still alive. Jonathan will soon discover for himself if thereís any truth in the rumours.

The film starts well and managed to hold my attention throughout thanks to its great blend of humour and horror, along with its good cast of familiar faces and newcomers alike.

The set design is a strong factor here, as are the practical effects; things which Hooper normally takes great care with, but the awful CGI really lets the film down.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Mortuary is a gory fun-filled fright fest perfect for Halloween night.
