Smith plays the disturbed serial killer, Christian. Palestis plays his love interest, Belle. Dylan Voorhees plays a young Christian.
Although claiming to be "pretty gruesome", as there is plenty of blood and graphic violence, the film is different from a run-of-the mill slasher film in that the serial killer is the protagonist. Morbid: A Love Story is due to be released in September 2009 with its premiere at the New Beverly Cinema.
Christian Thomas is a typical college student, but is also a serial killer. He sees death as the greatest art form, ranking his targets by degree of difficulty and making his victims his easel. Christian takes a liking to Belle, a girl in his class, and falls in love. He decides he wants to lead a normal life and stop his killing ways, but old habits die hard.
