Horror at Sundance: "All My Friends Are Funeral Singers"

I suspect calling "All My Friends Are Funeral Singers" a horror movie is a bit of a stretch, but hey, it's got ghosts. It's about a fortune teller played by Angela Bettis who lives in a house filled with ghosts who act as her surrogate family. The ghosts eventually realize they are trapped in the house and the psychic is forced to come to terms with the fact that they have to move on. What's most notable about the film is that it was directed by musician Tim Rutili of Califone and the band's latest album shares a name with the film and serves as the film's score. If you thought "The Frighteners" needed more earnest, experimental indie rock, this might just be the film you've been waiting for.
