Mortuary is a 2005 horror-thriller film directed by Tobe Hooper. It stars Dan Byrd, Alexandra Adi, and Denise Crosby.



After the loss of the father, the Doyle family move to the small town of Santa Loraina, California. As the family struggles to come to grips with the loss of its father, the mother, Leslie (Denise Crosby), takes over the long abandoned Fowler Brothers Funeral Home. However, Leslie's son, Jonathan (Dan Byrd), is told of a town legend, by Liz (Alexandra Adi), whom he meets at his new diner job. The legend that surrounds the home causes the locals to fear it. Townsfolk suspect that the land the home lies on is haunted and the cemetery on the property to be the living place of a sadistic monster. The Doyle family soon discovers that something lurks beneath Santa Loraina, something which raises corpses from their graves and feeds on death itself.


Cultural References

The film makes references to the works of H. P. Lovecraft: a quote carved on the door of a vault reads, "That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange eons even death may die," which is taken from his short story "The Call of Cthulhu"; the setting is a town called Arkham, which is the name of the town where the fictional Miskatonic University is located.
