Shallow Grave (1995)

shallow grave

By Scott Goldfine

A trio of roommates are vexed by what to do after a new cohabitant overdoses and leaves behind a satchel full of cash in this quirky, film noir import from Scotland. Seduced by the riches, the friends dispose of the body themselves, oblivious to killers seeking the deceased roomie, the police and their own downward spiral of deceit.

Directed by Danny Boyle and starring Ewan McGregor, this enjoyable romp keeps the viewer off-balance. Rated R.
