The Mortician is on its way in 3D, and if you’re a fan of psychologically thrilling horror, you’re in for a treat. Former Wu-Tang Clan member Method Man stars in the lead role (looking like a cross between Carlton from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and 49ers receiver Braylon Edwards). Grindstone Entertainment has picked up the rights to the film, and a new trailer awaits you.
The Mortician, written and directed by Gareth Maxwell Roberts, also stars Edward Furlong, Dash Mihok, Wendell Pierce, EJ Bonilla, Angelic Zambrana, Judy Marte, Dana Fuchs and Cruz Santiago. The 3D film premiered at the Berlin Film Festival and has been screened at the German Fantasy Fest as well as the Stiges Film Festival last weekend. It will be featured at the New Orleans Film Festival this coming weekend.
Alienated and cold, The Mortician (Method Man) processes corpses with steely disregard. He is lonely and isolated. He is introduced to his new employee, Noah (EJ Bonilla), by the morgue boss (Edward Furlong). Noah is a volatile youth working as part of his parole. Noah brings the notorious gangster Carver (Dash Mihok) and his crew to the mortuary door.
The Mortician’s attention is pricked by the tattoo of Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’ inked on the body of a murdered woman (Judy Marte) that arrives at the morgue, triggering a series of haunting dreams from his childhood. Discovering a scared child, Kane (Cruz Santiago), fleeing the morgue, he’s forced to act. They become reluctant allies, struggling for redemption as they run. Through his awkward heroism, The Mortician reconnects with his long forgotten past and finds the answers he’s been searching for. He find redemption and peace.
