USA Film Festival: Caring for the Recently Deceased




“Caring for the Recently Deceased” is a sort of dark humor story about an old woman and her dead husband. The husband comes back to life and the aftermath is where the humor kicks in. I thoroughly enjoyed this concept that was brand new to me from Britain. The stereotype of how husbands sometimes don’t do anything and the wives do everything was used in a surprising way in this film. The scenes when the undead husband is then a man slave serve as a comic picture of an owner with her dog. The makeup that was done to the actor of the husband as he aged was without false work. The little dark potholes in the story such as one of the leads dying by strangling by her undead husband served to tick all different tastes. The elderly resident community idea of the females controlling the males was so wanted and satisfying. This little film had a brilliant location and the feel of tasty British comedy that reminded me of “Hot Fuzz”. The lead actress looked like the tired and ready for a change woman she was portraying. Being next to the filmmakers made me appreciate this A of a project even more.
