The Funeral Home (2020) Review


Bernardo (Luis Machín) is an unhappy undertaker who lives with his family in the house shared with the funeral parlour business Bernardo has inherited. His wife Estela (Celeste Gerez) is depressed, struggling both with the memories of her formerly abusive marriage and the lack of romance in her marriage to Bernardo. Her teenage daughter Irina (Camila Vaccarini) is mourning the loss of her father and demanding to live with her grandmother. This is somewhat unsurprising given their home is haunted by the restless spirits of the recently departed.


Writer/director Mauro Iván Ojeda’s brooding debut feature film The Funeral Home is an Argentinian supernatural horror that reminded me of Hereditary, yet the final sequence had the hallmarks of a Guillermo Del Toro tragedy, which is unsurprising given film is produced by Del Toro Films. I reviewed the film for Love Horror during its screening at Frightfest. You can read the detailed review here.
