Steve Buscemi is not a name I associate with quality films, but I watched this anyway out of morbid curiousity. As it turned out, I was being too optimistic. Not only does it rip the premise from Peter Jackson's "Dead Alive" (Watch both movies & tell me I'm wrong), but it's a horror-comedy with neither horror nor comedy... discuss amongst yourselves.

The Synopsis for Ed and His Dead Mother (1993) 1080p
Ed misses his mother who has been dead for a year. He has lived almost his whole life with his mother, so when a stranger appears one day from a company called "Happy People Ltd." and claims that they can bring his mother back for 1 000$, he doesn't think long before he agrees. But everything doesn't go as it should go. For a while everything is fine and Ed's mother bakes cakes and takes care of him, exactly as before. But then she starts to act more and more strangely. Pealing potatoes in the fridge, repainting the kitchen over night, chasing dogs for meals, jumping over fences and other things that ordinary old mothers usually don't do. And when Rob (who was sent to jail by Ed's mother) appears, things really start to get out of hand.

I remember having seen "Ed and His Dead Mother" once before, but I could not remember anything about it. So I decided to sit down and watch it again, because of the rather impressive cast list that there were here.
Now, the fact that I couldn't remember a single thing about it should have raised an alarm bell for me. But it didn't. That was a mistake on my behalf.
This was an unfathomably slow paced and boring movie. I managed to endure 1 hour of it before I gave up, from pure boredom and utter lack of interest in the movie. I was ready to give up after 30 minutes, but decided to give the movie a chance because of the cast and because it might just get better. But it didn't!
Not even the likes of Steve Buscemi, Ned Beatty or John Glover could manage to lift up this soul-draining wreck of a movie. It felt like they were given absolutely nothing to work with in terms of script or plot.
I had expected more from the movie, to be quite honest. But I was so sorely disappointed and not entertained at all. And I can now say in all honesty that I am not returning to finish the last 30 minutes of this movie.
I first saw this movie on late-night cable; and instantly fell in love with both this film, and the talent of Steve Buscemi. Viewing this movie is HIGHLY entertaining. Although, I have discovered, while watching with groups, that this movie is not for everyone. Some of my friends feel as though it is TOO unbelievable a storyline, making it hard to watch. I feel as though the unrealistic concept is WHAT makes this movie the gem that it is. I also feel as though the supporting cast is fantastic... Of course, it doesn't have the greatest acting in the world...and once again, that is part of its' cultish charm!
