Ashes – USA, 2018

‘Laugh after death’

Ashes is a 2018 American horror feature film written and directed by Barry Jay (Killer Therapy; writer of Patient Seven wraparound story and The Chosen). The movie stars Jeremy Isaiah Earl, Damien Diaz and Maria Olsen.

After a family’s “black sheep” aunt dies, they are reluctant and creeped out to receive her cremated ashes. And when a series of strange, supernatural misfortunes beset them, they’ll have to go through hell to be rid of her angry spirit once and for all…


Ashes is released On Demand (VOD) on July 9, 2019.


“The film’s tagline is “Laugh after death”. So that sets up the overall tone you should expect. But in the end, the film is unable to pull through with that humor intact. It’s a great way to set up this particular family’s way of life and the light-hearted bonds they share, but there needs to be some genuine, real world reactions and consequences paired with the supernatural events depicted here.” Michael Klug, Horrorfreak News
