Richard W. (rewfilmmaker) from NAPLES, FL
Reviewed on 8/22/2012...
This is a quirky, off-beat comedy that starts off slow but builds up momentum fast. If you find yourself longing for a comedy with a subject that's different from the usual fare then this movie is for you. Unlike many other comedies you'll never predict where this plot is going. Hilarious, unexpected characters; Some of the themes are not suitable for children but you'll probably find yourself laughing so hard you won't care anyway.

Movie Reviews

A good, fun, British film
Steven Smith | Kansas City, MO USA | 09/14/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Overall, this is an enjoyable if (mostly) predictable, understated British comedy. Edward (Nick Moran) and his "lonely hearts" bride Samantha (Keeley Hawes) are a newlywed couple unwittingly staying at a hotel with an undertakers' convention. It's a setup to a comedy punchline, but there are some fun surprises as, to be expected, the wedded couple has not been entirely forthcoming with one another. The plot is pretty simple, with one one surprise at a time, but the acting is good and it's a funny movie most of the time."
Honeymooning at a funeral director's convention
R. Kyle | USA | 09/29/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If that thought brings up a dark chuckle, "Chaos and Cadavers" might just give you a few good laughs. The story briefly is that Edward and Samantha Taggart (Nick Moran and Keeley Hawes) are honeymooners just looking for a quiet place to spend a bit of time together. Unfortunately, they choose a hotel where there's a convention going on--at first they believe the black coated men are magicians, but it turns out they're funeral directors.

This brings Edward to confess that he's thanatophobic. Samantha wisely withholds her confession.

Meanwhile, one of the funeral directors precipitates the death of Mr. Resurrection (John Bennett) and his two proteges try to cover it up.

If you're a fan of very dark comedy and death, you'll probably enjoy this film. It's not the strongest Brit comedy I have ever seen but it is good for a few laughs and if you're not too picky, you'll have some fun with it. Might best be mixed with a few good friends some beer and crisps.

Rebecca Kyle, September 2009"
