Just Buried is a 2007 Canadian film written and directed by Chaz Thorne and stars Jay Baruchel and Rose Byrne.[1]


When Oliver Whynacht (Jay Baruchel) inherits his estranged father's funeral home, he discovers it is almost bankrupt. After a night of drinking with Roberta Knickel (Rose Byrne), he kills a local man with his truck. Roberta, who is both the local coroner and funeral home embalmer, helps Oliver stage the body so that it appears like an accident. However, when suspicion is raised that the death may not be accidental, Oliver and Roberta realize that they have to kill again. The need to hide their crime and to keep the funeral home in business leads to Oliver and Roberta falling in love and participating in a series of "accidental" deaths. After Roberta gets pregnant the truth comes out that she was using Oliver to get back the funeral home which originally belonged to her mother and Roberta killed Oliver's dad in order to use him to regain ownership of the funeral home.
