Summary[edit]

A young woman, Sam (Caitlin Custer) attends the funeral of a small boy, approaching the mortician Montgomery Dark (Clancy Brown) afterwards about a job opening. She challenges him to tell her the scariest stories about death that he has witnessed in his position. What follows is four short stories. The first about a '50s housewife who discovers something disturbing in the bathroom. Following that we learn about a slimey college boy in the '60s who gets his comeuppance. Next we meet a man in the '70s who must make a tough choice about his ailing wife. Throughout the stories, Sam criticizes their predictability and tameness. She tells the final tale set in the '80s, titled "The Babysitter Murders".
