Overview

Texas Chainsaw Massacre director Tobe Hooper returns to his rightful place behind the camera to weave this gruesome tale concerning an abandoned small-town funeral home with a dark and deadly secret. Local legend has it that the Fowler Funeral Home in Santa Loraina, CA, is plagued with death of the most unnatural kind. Rumored to have been purchased to launch a ranching business by Zeb Fowler, the land was subsequently converted into a funeral home when the cattle all began dying of a mysterious and undiagnosed ailment. When Zeb and his wife gave birth to a hideously disfigured boy named Bobby soon thereafter, the story took a strange turn as the pair attempted to shelter their son by covering his face with a burial shroud. After young Bobby disappeared at the age of eight and his parents were found brutally murdered a decade later, rumors began to swirl around the community that Bobby may still be alive. Now single mother Leslie Doyle (Denise Crosby) has moved into the long-abandoned and hideously decrepit home with aspirations of restoring it and taking on the role of town mortician for the town of Santa Loraina, and, along with her children, Jonathon (Dan Byrd) and Jamie (Stephanie Patton), she is about to discover that some legends never die.

While the director may call this an attempted horror film, I find it a quite a disgraceful waste of time. This film doesn't appeal to regular horror emotions - like suspense and fright - it seemed to give its viewer psychological damage through quickly-changing emotional feels. At times there may have been a bit of fright, but there is not one ounce of suspense. You feel conflicting emotions for the protagonists and antagonists of the film. In other words, both the good guys and the bad guys do good and bad stuff - sometimes you feel for both of them - sometimes you just want them to be "shot in the face," because you simply can't stand it anymore. The soundtrack is somewhat fitting, however - but the plot is ridiculous - and of course it has one of those ridiculous horror movie endings that just make you feel like "what did I watch this movie for."

It's a movie, and the funding was somewhat acceptable, and there was a dash of humor here and there - but otherwise its just awful. Avoid it.
