Period crime noir thriller starring Paul McGann and Tara Fitzgerald. A mild-mannered funeral director is at a moral crossroads, caught up in a power-grab by a local gangster, pressured into burying victims off-the-record.

Filmed entirely at The Bottle Yard Studios. Blending classic 1940s American film noir with the sharp edges of 1960s British crime movies and a touch of 1920s German expressionism, The Undertaker built meticulously crafted sets in the studio to achieve its stylised world.

Whilst filming, the production team also provided valuable access to students from Boomsatsuma Film School, who gained work experience in the production office, art department and camera department.
