“Welcome to Potters Bluff!”

Tourists travelling through Potters Bluff are violently murdered. The local sheriff has troubles with the mysteries surrounding these deaths. Suddenly it seems like the dead are coming back as the towns happy inhabitants. The secret of the mortician and the whole town unravel in the gruesome finale.

Had this flick for a while, and finally got to see it. It’s a different and clever horror, with a young Robert Englund in one of the roles. Stan Winston (Aliens, Predator, Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park) is behind the SFX. The movie is good, but I feel it missed something, or could have been better. Original and fresh nonetheless. The opening is epic!

A nice release by Blue Underground. Contains a couple of interviews, audio commentary with director, actress and co-producer and trailers. A good package!
