"I usually enjoy anything the Lionsgate name appears on , but I didn't realize this was a Lionsgate flick until I rented it. It was entertaining enough with an unusual style. I thought the acting was transparent in some spots, and the music, suitable at first, tended to get annoying later. But this movie has a very strange feel; that's what kept me glued to it.
I don't want to reveal anything, but you'll probably start to work it out fairly early in the film, because this "twist" has been twisted before.
Still a good one, though. Once again, Lionsgate does not disappoint.
Lionsgate Yet Again Puts Out Another Flix That's Dead On Arr

"Take five seemingly unrelated people, put them meeting at a Morgue, have them chased by someone with a scalpel, then chop the film to pieces & reconnect the parts any way you see fit, and that's The Morgue. Very low budget, and without giving too much away, if you needed a movie that's a poor-mans cross between The Sixth Sense and The Others, go rent this for free from Redbox like I did. Wish I didn't though...Jeez, Lionsgate really has been putting out the lamest flix lately....
Visiting a real morgue would have been scarier.

"Wow, this was the worst film I have every seen.
1. You figured out the "twist" in the opening sequence.
2. The acting is horrible. The little girl was the best one.
3. WHY THE H3LL WOULD A PARENT LEAVE THEIR CHILD WITH A STRANGER THEY JUST MET!!
4. The pace of each scene was excruciating.
5. When you have to get help... don't you normally run... not stroll through a graveyard?"
Don't Necessarily Bury this One

"The jacket on this DVD advertises an astonishing twist ending. You'll probably guess that ending from the start though. The cinematic tricks and quick replays make it fairly obvious. However, there is a slightly different take on that obvious ending that's revealed in the movie's very last sentence voice-over.
On the negative side, the actors are mostly unknowns and in some instances, rightly so. The sets and production values show Morgue's amateur roots, and the narrative involves some contradictory muddle in the Morgue.
On the plus side, while there is no full-length Directors' commentary on the DVD, there is a "Making of Morgue" featurette that shows a little of the interesting interaction between the Portuguese Directors and the American/Canadian cast and crew.
Overall, this movie is worth sticking with, although it's a marginal call. But it might leave you, at least temporarily, with a greater appreciation for what you have. And that's more than most quick indie movies accomplish."
