Synopsis: 

Death is a taboo subject in American culture. We try not to think about it. People don't like to talk about it. And it's definitely not normal to embrace death. Except for during Halloween, that is. For one month of the year, it is totally ordinary and mainstream to celebrate our fears with cartoonish skeletons, ghouls, ghosts, and zombies. Come November first, it's less socially acceptable to display your rubber dead body props and plastic skull decorations. Coffin Crusin' is about a small club of Carolinians that refuse to conform to cultural norms by not putting away their caskets for the other 11 months of the year.
