Another 3D Horror Brings *Stiff* Competition: THE MORTICIAN

Jim here. Have some news from BloodyDisgusting on a new 3D horror movie entitled THE MORTICIAN, and a family horror movie, MONSTER MUTT. Co-creative Directors Harvey Lowry and Todd Tucker are involved with both. With each passing week, more and more horror movies are being planned and announced in 3D. Lets hope the 3D screens that have been promised to start ramping up in November can handle the load next year. Release window negotiations will be key for the time being. Stiff competition for THE MORTICIAN :-)

Director Harvey Lawry spoke about THE MORTICIAN: “We signed on a movie today called THE MORTICIAN it’s shooting in New Orleans in about five weeks. It’s a 3-D thriller-horror film and is pretty graphic, but I don’t want to get into it too much yet.”

And here are the plot highlights: The Mortician processes corpses with a steely regard. He is alienated and cold. He feels threatened by his new employee, Noah, who brings the notorious gangster, Carver, to the mortuary door. The Mortician’s attention is pricked by the tattoo of Botticelli’s 'Birth of Venus' on the body of a murdered young woman, Jenny. A fleeting recognition triggers a sequence of haunting dreams from his childhood. He discovers a scared child, Kane, fleeing the morgue. Carver interrogates him about the whereabouts of the boy. The Mortician witnesses Noah drag Kane into the shadows of a derelict tenement. Forcing him to act, Kane sparks the Mortician’s emotional awakening. Emerging from his icy state, the Mortician and Kane become reluctant allies united in their struggle to escape the physical and emotional chains that threaten to imprison them.

Tucker continues about MONSTER MUTT: “We also just finished out first in house production, which is MONSTER MUTT. Harvey produced and I directed. We’re about a week away from having it done and were gonna have it sold and out next year. It’s a family fantasy PG film about a family dog that gets turned into a monster. Zak Ward is in it.” He goes into a bit more depth about the actual plot, “[It’s about] a family dog that gets kidnapped by an evil corporation and they use it for testing and accidently turn it into a monster mutt,” he continues, “it finds its way home and the kids try and hide it from the rest of the neighborhood.”

Thanks again to BloodyDisgusting for their continued great work uncovering these 3D movies! THE MORTICIAN sounds a little psychological - and creepy. Would have liked to learn a bit more about how Tucker will be tackling the 3D, but when we get more, you will have it.
