Celebrate All Hallows’ Eve hearse club-style in this special Halloween extra from Coffin Cruisin’!
In this extended scene from Coffin Cruisin’, hearse club members roll into Horror Fields, a haunted attraction in Sawmills, North Carolina for some Halloween fun and get to blow zombies away with paintballs. Filmed in 2012, Undead Paintball, a combination hayride and shooting gallery, was one of the first attractions of its kind.
Special thanks to Horror Fields for letting us play!

A Film by Joe Cornelius and Palmer Holton
Before Joe Cornelius (Coffin Cruisin’s director of photography) helped to shoot our hearse club documentary, he made another short film, even more closely related to the death care industry. Morrison’s Grove (co-directed by Joe Cornelius and Palmer Holton) profiles Larry Morrison of Lexington, NC, a funeral director with a long career and an unexpected side job.

We came across Waylon Thornton and the Heavy Hands searching through the Creative Commons and thought their music had the perfect sound for our film. Director Brenton Richardson reached out to Waylon to let him know we wanted to use their music and he was very supportive of the project. So much so, it inspired him to look for hearses available in his area, and shortly thereafter, he got one of his own!
