[Fantasia 2020] Audio Review: The Mortuary Collection (2019)
The Mortuary Collection (2019) is a stunning horror anthology from writer/director Ryan Spindell, taking place at Raven’s End Mortuary, as mortician Montgomery Dark (Clancy Brown) recounts stories of terror through the decades to a young woman Sam (Caitlin Fisher). The wrap around and the stories link together to compile a memorable ride, one that will both delight and frighten audiences. In the vein of horror anthologies like Creepshow (1982) and Trick ‘r’ Treat (2007) with some Burton/Del Toro atmosphere, this is sure to become a horror classic.
The following review of the film is in an audio format. Enjoy!
