Christopher Webster [Film Festival 02.22.11] movie news interview horror video thriller

The Mortician (3D) just made its worldwide debut at the Berlin Film Festival, in the Panorama sidebar, last Saturday. The film was actually shot in 3D and is described as an “urban noir tale;” “technologically innovative and creatively groundbreaking” for an indie feature.

For well over a year there has been nary a word from the production, but thanks to Shadow and Act we now have 3 extended clips and 2 video interviews with the director, producer, other key crew members, and even Method Man.

HE MORTICIAN, one man’s struggle through the violence and corruption of a dying city where the poor are corralled into lawless ghettos. Alienated and cold, THE MORTICIAN processes the corpses with steely disregard. His new employee, NOAH, a volatile youth working as part of his parole, brings the notorious gangster, CARVER, to the mortuary door.

The Mortician’s attention is pricked by the tattoo of ‘Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’ inked on the body of a murdered woman, triggering a series of haunting dreams. Discovering a scared child, KANE, fleeing the morgue, he’s forced to act. Kane sparks The Mortician’s emotional awakening. They become reluctant allies struggling for redemption, determined to escape the physical and emotional chains that threaten to imprison them forever.

The Mortician comes from British director Gareth Maxwell Roberts and stars Method Man (as the titular mortician), Edward Furlong and Dash Mihok. Wendell Pierce of The Wire fame also co-stars.
