Sam Grimm (Perry Lang) and his brother Max (Christopher Atkins) stand to inherit the mortuary academy that bears their family name in this black comedy. The two brothers must first graduate, and their progress is monitored by school manager Dr. Paul Truscott (Paul Bartell) and the academy's top lecturer Mary Purcell (Mary Woronov). Truscott is blackmailed when he falls in love with a corpse (Cheryl Starbuck), a beautiful cheerleader who choked to death on popcorn. Dickson (Tracey Walter) is the mechanical wizard whose animatronic expertise brings a dead heavy-metal band back to life for one last encore performance. Co-starring Wolfman Jack and Cesar Romero.
