The supernatural chiller premiered at last year’s Fantasia under the title THE UNDERTAKER’S HOME, and under either title promises a creepy time.

Uncork’d Entertainment has announced that THE FUNERAL HOME will play select virtual theaters beginning January 29, followed by wider digital release February 2. Written and directed by Mauro Iván Ojeda, it stars Luis Machín, Celeste Gerez, Camila Vaccarini, Susana Varela, and Hugo Arana. The synopsis: “Bernardo [Machín] 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.”
