The Mortuary Collection initially premiered at the 2019 Fantastic Fest a couple of years back. This also already debuted on Shudder streaming last fall, but we’re just now catching up with this final trailer.
This anthology film features four horror stories that progress through four decades. A 50s housewife struggles with a mysterious presence in her bathroom, a 60s college boy gets a taste of his own fraternizing medicine, and a 70s husband makes some tough decisions about his wife, culminating in 80s-set The Babysitter Murders.
Here’s the final trailer –
The Mortuary Collection’s synopsis reads –
“Each of the four horror stories brings us into a fully realized, impeccably designed period piece, moving chronologically from the 1950s through the 1980s. A 50s housewife struggles with a mysterious presence in her bathroom; a 60s college boy gets a taste of his own fraternizing medicine, and a 70s husband makes some tough decisions about his wife — all culminating in the 80s-set The Babysitter Murders (which Spindell previously won Best Director at Fantastic Fest for). With a vibrant variety of tones and timely themes, The Mortuary Collection is a wild ride that showcases a balance of humor, terror, squirm-inducing moments, and the ability to completely pull the rug out from under the audience.”
Starring in the film is Caitlin Custer, Clancy Brown, Barak Hardley, Christine Kilmer, Mike Nelson, and Sarah Hay, and is written and directed by American filmmaker Ryan Spindell, making his feature directorial debut after numerous award-winning shorts he was known for previously.
The movie originally premiered at Fantastic Fest movie festival back in 2019, and it also debuted streaming on Shudder last fall. RLJE will release Spindell’s The Mortuary Collection on DVD/VOD starting April 20th.
