"Morbidly interesting story about a semi-foxy blonde homicidal maniac with a pension for making sweet love to corpses who gets a job at a small town funeral parlor that already happens to be home to a few wackos, including one organ stealing psycho who looks like a cross between Henry Rollins and Stan Ross in THE PRIVATE EYES!!! Wow.
Not wall-to-wall psychotic gore like I was hoping but it does have it's moments like somebody being strangled with another person's intestines - haven't seen that since RICKY-OH. The biggest drawback is the 119 minutes running time. That's too long, trim off 20 minutes of unneeded talking, up the outrageousness and this would have been a minor cult favorite.
First time writer-director-actor-producer Alan Rowe Kelly appears to be a promising new talent in horror movies. I can't wait to see what he does next. Hopefully he doesn't sell out and if anything goes even more over the top. It worked for PINK FLAMINGOS, DEAD ALIVE and EVIL DEAD 2. "

"Talk about a totally wacked-out flick... a horror film fan friend of mine recommended this one to me and told me to be ready for a wild ride and he was right.
Bodysnatching, bizzare characters, twisted murders, revenge, necrophilia, blood, more twisted characters and more of everything.
If you are a horror flick afficianato you should check out this flick."
A+ Independent Effort.

"I think you have to really love independent films to really appreciate a movie like I'LL BURY YOU TOMORROW. It's movies like this that really takes chances and is not afraid to tell a good, disgusting story. The problem with most horror movies these days is the fact that they are so predictable and seem to use the same scary tricks again and again. Independent movies seem to get cheaper and cheaper, and production values go down. It's easy to find independent horror, but hard to find a good one like I'LL BURY YOU TOMORROW.
Like all independent movies, this is not a perfect film. It's a little long, rough editing, and there is some hammy acting and emoting. But, this is a good movie, folks. I guess these rough edges give it its charm. It's not perfect, but I like that. I'm the kind of guy that likes to see creativity on the screen. If the filmakers able able to pull it off, I will always enjoy it.
I'LL BURY YOU TOMORROW is a different kind of horror film. It doesn't rely on slashers, vampires or zombies or any other cliches. Its a dark tale of graverobbing in a small town. When a girl moves into the local funeral home for work, she brings all her dark secrets with her. This movie then exposes its many layers by unfolding a bunch of events that will surely involve everyone who falls into the path of the girl (Dolores) and the graverobbers (Jake and Corey).
The story had a lot of cool twists and turns, and kept me wondering just what was going to happen next. I was even fooled a couple times. Just a fresh kind of movie. I was glad catching this after I have read so much about it. If you like good independent movies, (warts and all) this is going to make you happy.
The extras disappointed me a little bit. Where is the commentary? I would have liked to hear from the director and actors what it was like making this thing. The three trailers were pretty good. There is an OK blooper reel, and 19 (!!!) deleted scenes. For a two hour movie, that seems like quite a bit. All in all the picture looks pretty good and the sound is clear as a bell. Foor lovers of independent horror movies, give I'LL BURY YOU TOMORROW a look."
Disturbing....not for the faint of heart

"I would like to start off by saying that this movie is not going to be for everyone. There are some very disturbing scenes as well as plenty of grotesque subject matter. Some may be put off by the necrophilia and the brutal rape/incest scenes. Personally I found them to be very brutal and hard to watch. It seems like the director was trying very hard to push the envelope. Maybe a little too much. There is a lot of blood and guts as well. Personally, I found some of it hard to watch and had to look away several times.
However, this is still a good movie. There is plenty going for it, though. The characters are unique, and the acting is above average for an independent film. The lead character, (Zoe Chlanda) is spectacular. This is not your typical female lead. She starts off as a meek, shy, basket case, but by the end of the film she transforms into a raving lunatic! She really holds the movie together, since her character is the catalyst for all the carnage that takes place. And boy, can she handle an axe!
Bill Corry and Katherine O'Sullivan plays the creepy undertakers of the Beech Funeral home perfectly. Perfectly screwy! He is a fidgety man, and she a religios nut who has delusions of her dead daughter. Perfect folks to run a funeral home. Jerry Murdock does a good job playing both Sherriff Mitch Giraldi and his scummy brother, Jake. I didn't even know it was the same person until I saw it in the credits. A Really convincing job. I went back and watched it again to make sure and I still don't believe it! Alan Rowe Kelly, the director also does a great job playing Corey, the beautician in the funeral home. All of his scenes are hilarious. He plays the bitchy "Divine" party wonderfully! I didn't know whether to hug him or slap him. I just wished there were more of him.
I guess I'll Bury You Tomorrow is more of a Black Comedy than a straight up horror movie. The situations and story are outrageous, and the evnts play out like a slow-motion train wreck. I found myself laughing hysterically one moment, only to be ready to barf the next. It offers that much, and will entertain people looking for a "fun" movie and those hard core horror fans. It's not really a date movie, though. :-)
My main problem with it was the extreme nature of the subject matter and violence. It was too gruesome in certain parts. But, if you like all the blood, as well as the necrophilia, incest, rape and perversion, this might suit you. Be ready for a wild ride, but be warned about the subject matter. It's not for everyone."
