“Tobe Hooper begins shooting today in Pomona, CA on his new horror film MORTUARY, which reunites him with several of his collaborators from TOOLBOX MURDERS, including producer Tony DiDio, scriptwriters Adam Gierasch (who tells Fango, “If people like slime and vomiting and weird monsters, they’ll love this”) and Jace Anderson, cinematographer Steve Yedlin, makeup FX artists Dean and Starr Jones and actors Greg Travis and Price Carson. Also in the cast are young actors Dan (’SALEM’S LOT) Byrd, Alexandra (TEQUILA BODY SHOTS) Adi, Courtney (MTV’s UNDRESSED) Peldon and Bug Hall (Alfalfa from the LITTLE RASCALS movie, all grown up and “playing a total sleazeball,” according to Gierasch), along with Michael Shamus Wiles, Lee Garlington and Gierasch himself as “the 90-year-old dead piano teacher, Mr. Barstow.”

The movie is about a family that moves to the town of Arkham, Massachusetts and takes on the job of running a local funeral home, where an evil presence resides in the adjoining cemetery; Evan (HOME SICK) Katz and Peter Katz are producing with DiDio.
