Morris County on DVD and VOD in Time for Xmas Print E-mail

Unearthed Films is proud to present MORRIS COUNTY. Award-winning writer/director Matthew Garrett (Beating Hearts) presents a trilogy of thematically connected stories as gruesome as they are tragic and heartfelt. In a performance praised by both Fangoria and Rue Morgue, Darcy Miller is Ellie, a damaged teenage girl harboring a terrible secret. Through the course of one traumatic day we learn what led this innocent girl down a path of self-destruction from which there is no return. In The Family Rubin, an upper middle-class Jewish family struggles to keep up appearances as their seemingly perfect life begins to crack at the seams. Albie Selznick (Ricochet, The Young & The Restless) leads an ensemble cast in this shocking and heartbreaking take on the destruction of the modern American family. Elderly Iris is laid off in Elmer & Iris, forcing her to join her curmudgeonly husband in early retirement. When Elmer suddenly dies, Iris decides to keep his decaying body around out of fear of living - and dying - alone. Pamela Stewart (Hal Hartley's Trust and Amateur), Erik Fransden (The Colbert Report), and newcomer Alice Cannon star in this melancholy meditation on loss and the inescapable prison of old age. "Bolstered by grotesque FX from Brian Spears & Pete Gerner (I Sell The Dead, Stakeland, The Innkeepers), and a diverse score by electronic musician David Kristian (Karim Hussein's La Belle Bete and Douglas Buck's Prologue and Sisters), Morris County exposes suburbia's dark heart and the self-destructive compulsions that fester within." - Kier-La Janisse, author of House of Psychotic Women.

Kier-La Janisse
Author, House Of Psychotic Women

Like a Haneke film, when the end credits roll, you’re left feeling like a little part of you has just died.
Dave Jackson
Mondo Exploito

Seen in succession, these films form a sledgehammer strong experience that is as emotionally wrenching as one could possibly hope for. The room was frozen. Simply incredible.
Mitch Davis
Fantasia Intl. Film Festival

 “…these dark stories are like a Norman Rockwell painting made from raw meat…
Scott Johnston
Philadelphia Film Festival/Cinefest

It's a drama - but the stories venture into such dark, bitter, raw, and rattling territory, the film is custom built more for horror fans than fans of conventional dramas.
Eric Stanze
"…this was a deeply unsettling film and well worth seeking out.
Greg Christie

…alone as their individual segments and together as Morris County, this is a very moving, poignant film.
