From the Frolic Pictures press release:
“Here it comes! At last! The milestone 25th release from ‘Frolic Pictures’
— “Hearse Life”, a Deadset Productions, feature-length documentary, like no other above ground!
16 years in the making, “Hearse Life” offers something to enlighten, amuse, or even offend any/all viewers.
Created by Peter Luke Rodkey, “Hearse Life” is a stylish and provocative documentary chronicling funeral coach history from the late 1800’s to the present-day, tracing the story of these unique, professional vehicle’s owners and dealers, the evolving of hearse clubs, and their offbeat sub-culture. This cutting edge film also highlights an array of human reactions – shock, disgust, comic relief, even sex appeal – to many classic, antique, and custom hearses, including the filmmaker’s own.
This is not yet another over-produced, so-called modestly budgeted documentary affair. No… “Hearse Life” is true, no ‘b.s.’, guerilla filmmaking at its most grassroots undertaking.
Don’t own, or even like hearses? Do you think hearses and/or their private owners are sick? Morbid? Too much of a ‘shock doc’…? Well, take a look anyway, and unearth this cinematic gem!
Take a break from all those mega-mega million dollared, over-hyped mainstream movies(which look like they were practically shot inside a computer!), and rest assured that no hearses were harmed in the making of the picture..
The Rolling Dead are Here!!! “Hearse Life”, a true heavy metal on wheels showcase — very proudly featuring the late, great Phil ‘Philthy Animal’ Taylor, formerly of Motorhead!
So, don’t wait until you die to experience the motion picture ride of your life!
Look for the DVD soon!”
