Morgue is a 2019 Paraguayan horror feature film about a security guard who gets trapped in the titular morgue of a hospital overnight. Unfortunately, he suffers terrifying paranormal encounters.
Written, produced and directed by Hugo Cardozo, the HJ Producciones movie stars Diego Martínez, Francisco Ayala, María del Mar Fernández, Abel Martínez, Pablo Martínez, Raúl Rotela, Willi Villalba and Aldo Von Knobloch.
Variety reported that Morgue had more than 60,000 movie house admissions in Paraguay in 2019 out-grossing even IT: Chapter Two and Annabelle Comes Home.
Having already been sold to over forty international territories, Well Go USA has acquired North American distribution rights via sales agent FilmSharks.
Furthermore, a US remake is already being developed by Eric Heisserer (Bird Box, A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Thing, Final Destination 5) via his company Chronology, which has a first-option deal with Paramount Pictures.
“It’s pretty much a one-man show following Diego through his supernatural journey. His performance is pretty solid with no overacting. He’s great in the role and they did a great job casting him. The supporting cast is great as well. Their characters are not as developed as Diego’s but they deliver solid performances.” Horror Society
