In the wake of its premiere at Fantasia, Mauro Iván Ojeda’s supernatural thriller The Funeral Home is heading to select virtual theaters on January 29, 2021, and digital Feb 2. This is Ojeda’s first feature film.
By the looks of the trailer, The Funeral Home is full of intense ghostly horror just right for fans of the supernatural. If the formula is handled correctly—which it looks like it is— that means plenty of jumpscares, ugly wicked spirits, and maybe even a little gore.
Here’s the logline:
Bernardo is an undertaker. He and his dysfunctional family live amongst coffins, wreaths, and mischievous supernatural entities that visit daily. They attribute the paranormal manifestations to the dead bodies from their mortuary work. Finding the real source of all this madness will be their quest, but they might find a terrifying truth. Luis Machín, Celeste Gerez, Camila Vaccarini, Susana Varela, and Hugo Arana star.
