Worth Watching: Justin Steele's 'Death and Cremation' Trailer
Last week, a reader named Daniel emailed me about a rather crazy trailer on Apple for an interesting indie film called Death and Cremation. This dark thriller stars legendary character actor Brad Dourif (of "Deadwood", Halloween, the voice of Chucky) as Stan, a lonely 59-year-old who offers cremation services from his basement. Oh and he murders his neighbors that he thinks are "social bullies." High school outcast Jarod (played by Jeremy Sumpter) lands a job working with Stan and the two quickly develop a (murderous) partnership. This looks just twisted and demented and dark and crazy, so watch out, but it doesn't look bad.

Death and Cremation is directed by first-time feature filmmaker Justin Steele, a Los Angeles Film School graduate of only a short film titled A Norwegian Lunch previously. The screenplay was co-written by Steele and first-timer Alecc Bracero. This was shot on the Red camera in Los Angeles last year, but hasn't shown at any film festivals or anywhere else yet. The film is being released independently by AJI Productions and will hit very limited theaters on June 4th this summer. Visit the official website: deathandcremation.com.
