If for nothing else than the lyric, “Forget the hearse ‘cause I never die,” I think Frolic Pictures should be using AC/DC’s “Back in Black” in the trailer, or as the film’s theme. But, I understand budget constraints. Nonetheless, 16 years in the making, Hearse Life offers something to enlighten, amuse, or even offend any and all viewers.
Created by Peter Luke Rodkey, Hearse Life is a stylish (like Heavy Metal Parking Lot was) and provocative chronicling funeral coach history from the late 1800s to the present-day, tracing the story of these unique, professional vehicles’ owners and dealers, the evolving of hearse clubs, and their offbeat subculture. This cutting-edge film also highlights an array of human reactions — shock, disgust, comic relief, even sex appeal — to many classic, antique, and custom hearses, including the filmmaker’s own.
Don’t own, or even like hearses? Do you think hearses and/or their private owners are sick? Morbid? Too much of a “shock doc?” Well, take a look anyway, and unearth this cinematic gem!
Take a break from all those mega-mega million dollared, over-hyped mainstream movies (which look like they were practically shot inside a computer!), and rest assured that no hearses were harmed in the making of the picture..
The Rolling Dead are Here!!! Hearse Life, a true heavy-metal-on-wheels showcase — very proudly features the late, great Phil “Philthy Animal” Taylor, formerly of Motorhead!
So, don’t wait until you die to experience the motion picture ride of your life! Look for the DVD soon!
