Time traveling Scottish grave robbers, a sad loner who murderously re-enacts the Boston Tea Party, a jealous husband in pursuit of the tree he believes is his wife's lover, and senior citizens who battle extraterrestrials for their favorite booth at the local diner. They have dark, absurd tales to tell. Come meet them on the Sunset Cruise, and bring a coin for the Ferryman. (He works for tips.)

"If you took Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, Robert Benchley, and James Thurber, cut them up, picked their parts out of a wet hat and put a person together, that person would be Mark Nutter, only shorter. His Sunset Cruise on the River Styx is a hilarious view into the void, where only the bravest, maddest comics go. Helpless with laughter is the only way this all ends... "  Dennis Paoli, screenwriter. Re-Animator, From Beyond.
