In Minneapolis, Minnesota, a funeral is held for a young woman, Jennifer. During the eulogy, given by a child, we hear a lot of sniffling. Also, this is the best corpse I’ve ever seen.
Then, we meet a goddamn creep. Apparently, the family changed the service/burial to the next day in the middle of the viewing, which is fine. But then a strange man watches the speech from the entrance door and later approaches the open casket of Jennifer, touching her hair almost lovingly. Then he closes the casket.
Later that night the funeral director is startled by a noise, he’s scared and turns on a light. After the shock, he realizes that the man at the doorway is actually his assistant.
When questioned as to why he is working so late, Pfaster is evasive, saying he’s working. The funeral director notices a pair of scissors in Pfaster's hand and chunks of hair lying about. He opens Jennifer's casket to find that a good portion of her hair has been crudely cut off. Sickened and outraged, the funeral director fires Pfaster, who wordlessly turns and leaves.
He says he should report him but doesn’t. Which is the problem. How many times do you think this guy has been moved from one funeral home to another? Much like a Catholic priest.
FBI Agents are called to Minneapolis by Agent Moe Bocks, who discovers an opened grave and a desecrated body at the local cemetery. It’s raining again! MUFON! Also, holy hell, I was not ready for this shot.
