Overview

A low-key, atmospheric Canadian production, Funeral Home aka Cries in the Night makes effective use of the title setting, which has been converted into a bed & breakfast by Maude Chalmers Kay Hawtrey after the demise of her less-than-popular husband -- known throughout the town as "Chalmers the Embalmer." Maude's pretty granddaughter Heather Lesleh Donaldson arrives for a summer visit, and soon begins to hear weird, guttural moans and sobs from the padlocked cellar; before long, assorted obnoxious guests at the inn find their welcome revoked -- violently. Despite a nerdy deputy's obvious crush on her, Heather is unable to convince him that evil forces are lurking beneath the Chalmers house, and she decides to investigate on her own instead of just hitting the road like any sane individual. What she finds there will come as no surprise to anyone paying attention, since this quaint little inn is clearly modeled after a certain well-known Hitchcockian motel... Despite this obvious twist, this is not a bad little suspenser, with effective camerawork and good performances, especially from Hawtrey and Donaldson who resembles a buxom Ally Sheedy.
