Death is not the end.
Well Go USA raises the dead with the excellent Paraguayan horror Morgue, set for release on Digital HD, DVD, and Blu-ray May 11, 2021.
“After a harrowing accident, the perpetually down-on-his-luck Diego Martinez accepts a gig as a security guard at the local morgue. He thought he’d had a lucky break, but as the night wears on, eerie occurrences and the suddenly not-quite-lifeless body of the victim leave him to wonder: how much otherworldly rage does it take to wake the dead?”
A huge breakout hit in its home country, the film is—according to first-time writer/director Hugo Cardozo —based on real events.
Morgue scared up more than 60,000 admissions in Paraguay to become the top local release of that year, out-grossing even It: Chapter Two and Annabelle Comes Home, Variety previously reported, while also noting that a U.S. remake is already in the works with Oscar-nominated writer Eric Heisserer (Bird Box, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Thing, Final Destination 5).
