‘The Boneyard’ was a direct to video horror film that released in 1990 and was written and directed by James Cummins.
For a ‘straight-to-video’ film, ‘The Boneyard’ is pretty good value for its running time – whilst not being a comedy as such, ‘The Boneyard’ has a sense of humour and enough WTF moments to keep you interested.
The film centers around a mortuary, and a depressed psychic who is helping with an investigation into a series of murders, and soon the mortician is locked up. The mortician had been using his position to keep some undead creatures satisfied with offerings of human flesh, but with nobody left to feed them, they come looking for food themselves.
The posters to promote this are great ‘straight-to-video’ type design – a logo that would stand out on the video shelf, and an image that grabs the attention and makes you wonder what the fuck it is all about….THE POODLE!
