30 hand picked films. A new one every day
A family moves to a small town in California where they plan on starting a new life while running a long-abandoned funeral home. The locals fear the place, which is suspected to be on haunted ground.
I was enjoying the the cheesy b-movie lines at first and some blackly comic embalming scenes but when the mother character took a campy turn it was too sudden and everything got muddled by implausibilities and became increasingly generic.
Saw this years ago. The only thing I remember is that the 12-year-old girl still dresses like a princess, plays with dolls, and is scared of the dark. I also remember it being awful.

Shoot me, but I rather like this one.
Under-rated, no one knows foreboding like Hooper!
