Ed and His Dead Mother
Life just hasn’t been the same for Ed Chilton (Steve Buscemi – Reservoir Dogs, Fargo, The Big Lebowski), since his beloved mother (Miriam Margolyes – William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, The Age of Innocence) passed away. Sharing the house with cantankerous Uncle Benny (Ned Beatty – Superman, Deliverance), he quietly goes about keeping the memory of his mother alive, that is until he meets salesman A.J Pattle (John Glover – Scrooged). Pattle is selling an unusual product – life. For a price he promises that he can bring Ed’s mother back to life, just the way she used to be…
Ed accepts the offer, and is overcome with joy when she is brought back. However, life gradually becomes a nightmare, as Ed starts to see changes in his mother, such as a more violent approach to the chores and having to eat cockroaches in order to stay alive! Realising he’s has made a big mistake, Ed tries to track Pattle down and eager to find a way of putting his mother back where she belongs. When he finally locates Pattle, it turns out the solution may be grave and too much for poor Ed.
