HALLOWEEN’s Brad Dourif is the star of director Justin Steele’s new film DEATH AND CREMATION, which has a new teaser trailer and an official website. Read on for more!
The web page has the full trailer, cast information, a gallery and this synopsis:
In Crest Point, people go about their day-to-day lives with no sense of urgency and standard stereotypes abound. There’s the high school bully with the popular girlfriend. The single mother raising her son after her husband has died. The detective who has never cracked a big case. Then there’s Stan (Brad Dourif), a single 59-year-old recluse who contributes to society by offering cremation services from the basement of his funeral home.
Jarod Leary (FRAILTY’s Jeremy Sumpter), a bullied and fatherless 17-year-old high school outcast, doesn’t even try to fit in at his high school. Dressed in black, with his hair and fingernails matching, Jarod is picked on by resident jock David Valentine (Blake Hood) and doesn’t seem to have much luck with the ladies either. Most decide he’s a freak including cool girls Lindsey Weaver (Kate Maher) and Courtney Taylor (Madison Eginton), and although Courtney doesn’t mind him, Lindsey has other plans.
Besides trouble at school, Jarod’s home life isn’t much better. Living out of a trailer, he has to put up with nagging from his mother (Debbon Ayer) and her budding romance with self-righteous immigration attorney Rick Waters (Sam Ingraffia). Jarod finds afterschool work at Stan’s cremation house, where he and Stan quickly develop a unique working relationship that leads Jarod to a better understanding of the funeral world. Not long after Jarod begins working at the cremation house people start to go missing, including Lindsey. Lindsey’s parents Bill (VAMPIRES’ Daniel Baldwin) and Becky Weaver (Staci Keanan) tell suburban detective Matt Fairchild (Scott Elrod) about their recent family visit to a mortuary.
When Rick pressures Jarod to agree to a summer trip to Alabama, Jarod refuses, and Rick begins to show his ugly side. Around town, more clues emerge for Detective Fairchild, who ultimately steps up his investigation. As Fairchild puts together clues from local disappearances, Stan must decide if protecting his newfound trainee is worth killing for.
