After the death of his mother, a young, thin, slightly gawky man in mourning suddenly finds her back from the grave with a hunger for human flesh and must keep her out-of-sight while simultaneously trying to woo his new girlfriend in a series of comedic sequences. No, it’s NOT Peter Jackson’s DEAD/ALIVE (aka BRAINDEAD), it’s the sometimes startlingly similar ED AND HIS DEAD MOTHER from 1993, which leans a lot heavier on goofy humor and much, much, MUCH lighter on graphic violence. This one has a devoted cult around it, and stars a post-RESERVOIR DOGS Steve Buscemi, as well as Ned Beatty, an incredible John Glover and Jon Gries in supporting roles. LET’S SEE WHAT WE THOUGHT!
