"Death and Cremation" Burns Onto DVD April 24 from Green Apple Entertainment

Business is Booming at the Crematorium

Starring Horror Fave Brad Dourif, Burning up on DVD April 24th

"4 stars (out of 5). It's Karate Kid meets Dexter … a (darkly) comic tale of a master teaching the student  … And since the killer is played by the great Brad Dourif, it works almost flawlessly. Just take my word-it's pretty damn good."
- Bloody Disgusting

"I was blown away … This movie is nothing short of brilliant and
I enjoyed every minute of it. Highly recommended."

BOCA RATON - April 1, 2012 - For Immediate Release - Some relationships can really burn you up in Death and Cremation, on DVD April 24 from Green Apple Entertainment.

Crest Point is stereotypical Anywhere, U.S.A., where people go about their business, attend Friday night football games and the local cops' biggest worry is youthful pranksters.

Stan (Brad Dourif, the Halloween films, HBO's Deadwood, the voice of Chucky, The Lord of the Rings films, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) is a 59-year-old recluse who offers cremation services from the basement of his funeral home … though he doesn't seem much interested in promoting his business. In fact, he's a deranged sociopath who eliminates anyone he perceives to be a bully.

Jarod (Jeremy Sumpter, TV's Friday Night Lights, P.J. Hogan's Peter Pan, Frailty) is a fatherless, 17-year-old high school outcast who no longer even attempts to fit in at school.  Things aren't much better at home with mom's abusive boyfriend (Daniel Baldwin, Vampires, Born on the Fourth of July).

When Stan takes the beleaguered teen under his wing, they soon develop a demented friendship. But the neophyte makes mistakes and - as detective Fairchild (Scott Elrod, Escapee, The Switch, Hellhounds) struggles to pull together clues from local disappearances - Stan must decide if protecting his newfound protégé is worth killing for …

Death and Cremation is presented in full frame with an aspect ratio of 4x3 (1.33:1) and 2.0 Dolby Digital Stereo.
