After the homeless people leave Beau’s apartment looking like it was ravaged by a Category 5 hurricane, he calls his mother. However, an unidentified man answers her phone, much to his surprise. After a confusing exchange, the man says that he’s a postal worker who was at Mona’s house to deliver a package. Her door was slightly ajar, so he let himself in, only to discover the corpse of a woman. The postal worker asks Beau to describe Mona, but when he starts with her facial features, the postal worker asks him to describe what her body looks like. You see, Beau’s mom was killed by a chandelier that fell on her head.
Aster is a master at building dread, which works wonderfully well in this darkly comedic scene. From the moment a man answers Mona’s phone, we immediately know that something’s wrong. The awkward banter ratchets up the suspense as we crave to know what’s happened to Beau’s mother. We expect her death to be something more commonplace, like a heart attack or a car accident, not the slapstick accident we’re presented with. While Mona’s death is offscreen, it does nothing to undermine the almost “Looney Tunes”-esque style of her demise. Its unseen nature only exaggerates it, as we’re forced to use our imaginations to conjure up the ludicrous scenario.
