Horror Movie Review #29: The Morgue

**Most sites say this movie sucked. I disagree.

Directed By: Halder Gomes and Gerson Sanginitto
Release Date: August 28, 2008
Running Time: 84 minutes
Language: English

Horror Type: Ghosts on the run.
Sex? - None.
Gore? - None.

How fascinatingly twisted that The Morgue begins with a quote from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I mean, it needs a real Sherlock Holmes, or someone similarly trained to unweave the seemingly confusing threads of this movie.

"Whenever you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth."
It's about this group of seven strangers who find themselves fighting for their lives in this morgue. Sure its campy, but then it goes on to reveal that these people are dead to begin with. Like Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense or Nicole Kidman and her kids in The Others, these people don't know they're dead already. The surprising twist here is with the serial killers. I mean, what's the point of a killing spree if he's killing dead people to begin with? Ah, that's where it gets real clever.

Momel's Rating: 4/5
