"Just Buried" is an in-your-face horror film that is calibrated to induce smiles rather than screams. Thorne's darkly comic romance follows a geeky loner who unexpectedly inherits a failing funeral home and a female embalmer who captures his heart. When Oliver (portrayed with manic intensity by Jay Baruchel) takes over the family business, he soon discovers that it is going bankrupt, due to a shortage of deaths. But things take a sudden turn after a fatal accident points the way to a possible solution. Conspiring with Roberta (Rose Byrne), the funeral home's embalmer and the town's local coroner, the business starts making a killing – literally.
