The Mortician

If I'm correct, it's been a few months since we've heard anything about the suspense thriller/horror/drama film The Mortician, starring Method Man, in the creepy lead role, along with Edward FurlongDash Mihok, and Wendell Pierce.

Shot in 3D back in 2009 by British director Gareth Maxwell Roberts, the film was picked up for U.S. distribution back in September 2011, by Grindstone Entertainment which is (or was) a division of Mandate Pictures, which in turn is in partnership with Lionsgate, after it screened at several film festivals, including the Berlin Film Festival, German Fantasy Fest, Sitges Film Festival, and the New Orleans Film Festival.

But if the film actually got any kind of theatrical release anywhere, I'm unaware of it.

However Lionsgate has announced that they will be finally releasing the film on DVD on Feb. 14, 2012, just in time for Valentine's Day.

As Tambay reported back last year the film deals with: "one man's struggle through the violence and corruption of a dying city where the poor are corralled into lawless ghettos. Alienated and cold, THE MORTICIAN processes the corpses with steely disregard. His new employee, NOAH, a volatile youth working as part of his parole, brings the notorious gangster, CARVER, to the mortuary door. The Mortician's attention is pricked by the tattoo of 'Botticelli's 'Birth of Venus' inked on the body of a murdered woman, triggering a series of haunting dreams. Discovering a scared child, KANE, fleeing the morgue, he's forced to act. Kane sparks The Mortician's emotional awakening. They become reluctant allies struggling for redemption, determined to escape the physical and emotional chains that threaten to imprison them forever."

If there's anyone who there who has seen the film let us know your thoughts...
