Funeral Home: Special Edition arrives in February

Disc Announcements, News

My cousin’s side of the family was in the funeral business in a major Northeastern City. While we didn’t spend too much time at the funeral parlor, the times I dropped by in the evening, it was a bit creepy. It was creepier knowing their uncle lived upstairs while the bodies rested in the basement waiting for their service. Funeral Home is Canadian horror film from 1980 that wondered what would happen if you decided to covert the house into a bed and breakfast (which were getting trendy around that time). Are you ready to make a reservation when Funeral Home: Special Edition arrives in February? Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:
