If this one doesn't scare you, you're already dead!

Strange things are happening at the Morningside Cemetery. Jody Pearson (Bill Thornbury) attends the funeral of a recently departed friend. His younger brother, Mike (Michael Baldwin), watches the final rites and observes a tall mortician clad in black (Angus Scrimm) tossing the heavy, unburied coffin into a waiting hearse as if it were only a stick of kindling wood.

Determined to uncover the truth behind this unusual sight, Mike returns to the cemetery at night and breaks into the mortuary. There, he finds deadly, spectral creatures inhabiting the home's embalming cellar and comes face-to-face with the sinister Tall Man. After barely managing to escape with his life, Mike enlists Jody and their close friend, Reggie (Reggie Bannister), to discover what is really happening at the Morningside Mortuary and the secrets of the living dead who dwell there.
