Raphael (Brandyn T. Williams), a successful executive about to land an important deal is suddenly whisked off to the funeral of his nephew Lance (Mike Sarcinelli) who really meant a lot to him. On the way to the funeral though he witnesses a Grim Reaper taking a soul ... and according to ancient rules outlined to Raphael by Death himself (Michael Sciabarrasi), he is now to take that Reaper's place - meaning he becomes a Grim Reaper himself, and whenever somebody is to die, it will be made known to Raphael so he can touch whoever-it-is and take their soul. Raphael isn't pleased about that one bit and wants out of the deal, but Death isn't one to let him go easily ... so everything from now on is dictated by Raphael's attempts to avoid having to take lives, evade Death, fight other Reapers, and try to find a way to avert the deal - through which he makes a full out of himself at the funeral, has him almost fall out with Lance's parents (Melantha Blackthorne, Bill Oberst jr), almost love his personal assistant (Melyssa Jade) he's secretly in love with, and eventually his little but premature niece (Aryn Fitzgerald) is turned into a zombie - at least temporally, until Life (Jessica Cameron) turns her back and gives Raphael some directions to get out of his obligation to Death ... but that involves finding the one Reaper who got away, and (even worse) communicating with him via his only friend, constantly stoned Archangel Michael (John Fleming) ...


A Grim Becoming is first and foremost a film that's a lot of fun: Its main story is told surprisingly free of cheesy bits, despite its light comedic approach the film doesn't shy away from gore should need occur (though never to gross out the audience), several comedy skits (like Melantha Blackthorne and Bill Oberst jr as totally perverted grievinbg couple constantly trying to feel up their late son's girlfriend Devanny Pinn, Lynn Lowry and Patrick Mallette playing a couple of constantly horny senior citizens whose attempts at roleplay sex are constantly interrupted by the proceedings, Aryn Fitzgerald's bitchy cute girl routine and the like) are integrated into the story amazingly well, the ensemble cast is quite brilliant, and the direction is spot-on when it comes to shifting gears between comedy, drama, horror, romance and whatnot.

Total fun, really!
