Stênio (Daniel de Oliveira) works the nightshift at the local morgue in an incredibly violent Brazilian city; his marriage is failing and his son constantly disrespects him. What keeps him going is his extraordinary ability to converse with the mutilated cadavers he sews up, primarily gang members and criminals. Stênio talks with the city’s slain, learning their endless, potentially lucrative secrets – and unwittingly invites violence and mayhem to his doorstep when he acts on information from a particularly nasty corpse. A terrific genre film; tense, terrifying and relentlessly creepy, this gem offers up exceptional gory set pieces to sate hardcore horror fans up through its thrilling climax.
