IN U.S.

PERHAPS SOME SECRETS SHOULD STAY BURIED...

 

Mortal Remains is a docu-thriller which aims to unearth the details surrounding the life,  career  and mysterious death of  horror filmmaker Karl Atticus, referred to by some as a "founder" of  slasher film.

The film features interviews with various horror aficionados and industry personalities including Eduardo Sanchez, director of the Blair Witch Project  who wondered in a 2008 interview:  Why for over 40 years has Atticus's legacy  been all but eradicated from the annals of  horror film history? 

This film reveals much  about this elusive figure: a man

who inspired a  generation of filmmakers, but who has

yet to receive due credit for his contributions to the

genre. Crew members who worked alongside  Atticus

detail the puzzling circumstances under which his last film 

was created: missing cast members, intimations of 

of occult activity and allegations of special effects "too

convincing" for their time.  Was Atticus a genuine auteur

who challenged the industry and was silenced by his

contemporaries? Or were his films simply pretext-- 

elaborate showpieces designed to glorify work of a far

more sinister nature?  

 

Filmed on location in  Maryland and  Pennsylvania, the film hopes to ​confirm the legends and establish once and for all the legacy of a man whose final film is now considered by some to be the "Holy Grail  of horror."

 

Does a print of Atticus's Mortal Remains  still exist?  Why were the inconsistencies surrounding his apparent suicide left unanswered by authorities? And why has the life and work of one of the genre’s most influential directors been reduced to the level of myth?
