Rest in Pieces (1987)


A.K.A. Descanse en piezas
Directed by José Ramón Larraz
90 Minutes / I.V.E. / Unmatted Full Frame

A woman inherits the riches and a large estate of her recently deceased Aunt. She along with her husband settle in only for her to start having poltergeist-like encounters with her dead relative and find a group of eccentric house guests living at the manor.

I would include more in the synopsis but let's just cut to the chase--this film is a huge pile of shit. It starts off well enough but quickly dissolves into a series of confusing plot holes. The "big" twist involving the woman's husband near the conclusion invalidates everything prior (I've probably devoted far too much thought trying to get it) and then the film really derails into an absolutely jumbled mess of contrived scenes until mercifully the credits roll. It's fucking awful and deserves to be forgotten. The best parts are the ample breasts of Lorin Vail and the above cover (no zombies here). Not worth your time or effort.

Film: 1/10
VHS Picture: 7/10
VHS Sound: 6/10
