‘Ed and His Dead Mother’ is a US comedy directed by Jonathan Wacks, that has become a cult classic over the years
The film follows Ed Chilton (played by Steve Buscemi), who inherits the family hardware store when his beloved mother passes away. Ed had always lived with his mother, so when a mysterious stranger shows up in the store and offers Ed the ability to reanimate his dead mother for $1000, Ed jumps at the chance.
The film then plays out as a black comedy where Ed slowly grows to realize that he must come to terms with his mother’s death and that he should just let her rest in peace….especially as her behavior becomes increasingly bizarre and dangerous as the film progresses.
