    Beneath the Darkness
    A small-town mortician finds his darkest secret revealed in director Martin Guigui's edge-of-your-seat thriller. Everyone in Smithville, Texas, knows the name Ely Vaughn (Dennis Quaid). A former star quarterback on the high-school football team, amiable Ely went on to become the town mortician. Ely's always got a quick smile ready as he cheers on the hometown team, but two years after his wife's untimely death, he's grown increasingly reclusive. He lives in a sprawling mansion that also doubles as the local funeral home, and rumor has it that the house is haunted. For curious teens Travis (Tony Oller), Brian (Stephen Lunsford), Abby (Aimee Teegarden), and Danny (Devon Werkheiser), the temptation to find out for themselves if the stories are true prove too powerful to resist. Gazing into Ely's windows, the teens witness the silhouettes of the grieving widower and an unidentified woman dancing together, and decide to get a closer look. But it may be the last mistake they ever make, because beneath Ely's friendly facade dwells a murderous sociopath capable of unspeakable evil. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Great ride!


      I think this is a great thriller for a youthful audience. The acting is really good and I think Aimee Teegarden shows off some real skill in this film. Dennis Quaid is a truly interesting character - so crazy and funny. I loved seeing him in this role. It's not what you typically see from him at all. And believe it or not, to my surprise this movie has a lot of heart in addition to the thrills you'd expect. There is actually a deeper meaning to it all.

      I love Dennis Quaid, but can his agent please put him in a good movie. If you saw the trailer you saw the whole movie, nothing new just another recycled Hollywood script.

      The movie is based in a very small no traffic light town somewhere and the only mortician going crazy, no wonder he got crazy :(
