    The appeal of The Burial Society lays in its unusual and obscure take on an otherwise mundane tale of greed, treachery and double-cross.

    The gimmicky nature of the flashbacks weakens the story and lessens the film's suspense. Nevertheless, The Burial Society is a clever, spiritual film that argues that God sees all and, what's more, he's always right.

    Though hardly a major work, The Burial Society has going for it something that many of the snickering noir comedies currently littering the field lack. Underneath its cheeky amorality, there beats a heart.

    Screen chemistry and production crackle are lacking from this "Usual Suspects" wannabe.
  5. This non-secular variation on "The Usual Suspects" falls prey to a creeping structural rigor mortis that sets in early.
