Two unsuspecting coworkers arrive at a private beach house getaway only to discover their boss, Bernie, has been murdered. Fearing they’ll be pinned with the crime, they enjoy the rest of their vacation dragging around an incognito corpse, pretending Bernie is still alive. Wrap up the summer with this absurd and perfect beach flick.
Introduced by Screen Slate founder Jon Dieringer, creator of 24-hr Weekend at Bernie’s.
