A man goes to a necromancer to have her bring back his wife. She tells him the tale of a med student with an interest in bringing back the dead who, on a journey home to see his sick father, spends a night with an old man and his young wife.


It wasn’t as good as I’d hoped. It had to do with necromancy. I was hoping for something else. Like the young wife being brought back and not aging and that’s why she was with such an old man. But that’s not what it was and the dead looked gross and if I were them, I’d want to die. They aren’t human now. More like zombies.

It wasn’t horrible though. Kind of interesting. Kind of entertaining. Kind of gross. Kind of what the fuck.


I wouldn’t exactly recommend it, but it’s not at The level where I’d say not to watch it.
