Corpse is a feature film adaptation of the classic supernatural anthology "The King in Yellow" by Robert W. Chambers, created by the collaborative filmmaking team of Chris Ernst and Bill Darmon.
Influenced by classic independent genre films, cult movies, and experimental cinema, the film tells the story of a C-list reality TV star, her best friend and a group of young entrepreneurs who encounter a forbidden book that induces madness in those who read it.
