Last year, we shared the news that director Vivieno Caldinelli was crafting a strange dark comedy called CORPSE TUB, and that he had assembled a great cast to bring the story to life. That cast includes Sam Huntington, Kate Micucci, Taika Waititi, Dan Harmon, Maria Bamford, Mark McKinney, Rhea Seehorn, Brian Posehn, Dana Gould, Josh Brener, J Lee, Brian Girard, Lilan Bowden, Jon Dore, Mindy Sterling, Michael St. Michaels, Craig Cackowski, Britney Young, Ryan Simpkins, and Ron Lynch.

Written by Justin Jones and Christopher and Clayton Hewitson, the film tells the story of 

a young Midwestern couple who take a chance on moving to L.A. when they find an apartment with impossibly low rent. It’s soon revealed that the former occupant was an enigmatic cult leader who ended his life in the claw-foot bathtub. Now, a steady stream of his eccentric cult members break into the apartment to kill themselves in the tub in honor of their leader. Unable to afford another move, they soon find themselves inexplicably drawn into the cult, all the while navigating the inquiries of a beleaguered LAPD detective obsessed with selling a screenplay based on his own life.

CORPSE TUB is now completed and heading toward an April 20th premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival… but it's not called CORPSE TUB anymore. While making its way through production and post, it has been given a much longer title: SEVEN STAGES TO ACHIEVE ETERNAL BLISS BY PASSING THROUGH THE GATEWAY CHOSEN BY THE HOLY STORSH.

Yeah, I think they should have just kept calling it CORPSE TUB.

Entertainment Weekly got their hands on a clip and the poster for SEVEN STAGES (which you have to shorten the title to in order to talk about it… I'd rather say "CORPSE TUB"), both of which can be seen below.
