Enid Is Sleeping ★★ Over Her Dead Body 1990 (R)

Well-done comedy noir in the now-popular there's-a-corpse-in-the-closet subgenre. A woman in a mythical New Mexican town tries to hide the body of her sister Enid, who she's accidentally killed. Enid, it turns out, wasn't thrilled to discover her sister sleeping with her police-officer husband. Phillips and Perkins restored the film to its original state after it was ruthlessly gutted by the studio. 105m/C VHS, DVD . Elizabeth Perkins, Judge Reinhold, Rhea Perlman; D: Maurice Phillips; W: Maurice Phillips; C: Alfonso Beato.
