A Chronicle of Corpses

83' - 2000 - Drama, Horror - Dialogue: English
Director: Andrew Repasky McElhinney Composer: Lyle Holdahl With: Marj Dusay, Oliver Wyman, Margot White
The story takes place on a musty plantation during a long weekend in 1807. The once extremely rich Elliott family lives on a plantation that, just like the family itself, is slowly in decline. The head of the family, grandmother, suffers from senile dementia, as a result of which the everyday running of the plantation is in the hands of her children, grandchildren and partners, who are primarily interested in alcohol abuse and sexual excesses. Accordingly, as something strange and possibly supernatural begins to rampage around the Elliott compound, it is left to the attractive butler and the youngest member of the family, the teenage Sara - the only two with any sense of responsibility - to battle with the evil that engulfs the house while the mountain of corpses seems to get higher and higher.
