MORTUARY OF MADNESS (2013)
R. THOMAS RILEY, ROY C. BOOTH & JIM O'REAR
Young William Ackerman, the last family member in a long line of controversial morticians, had to get out of the small, stagnating town he grew up in before it smothered him to death. Saddled with the recent death of his father and plagued by ugly family rumors of experimentation with reanimation, William had reached his breaking point. All William ever wanted was health, happiness, and a family in his life, but all of those dreams suddenly change when his childhood sweetheart, Samantha, is wrenched away by her money-hungry parents. That's the last straw! You can bet that there will be Hell to pay as the bells of retribution toll. MORTUARY OF MADNESS is an eerie, macabre tale of revenge that follows one man's tortured descent into madness, explores the hazards and trappings associated with greed, and shows the evil men are capable of when pushed to the limit. *Based on an original screenplay by Jim O'Rear.
