The Horror Honeys: Honey Buzz: SXSW Trailer - THE CORPSE OF ANNA FRITZ


The initial nope factor that accompanied the announcement that The Corpse of Anna Fritz would be screened at SXSW has actually been lessened now that I've seen the trailer. 

At first fearing that it would turn into a Spanish version of Dead Girl (which isn't a good thing BTW) I'm actually pulling for The Corpse of Anna Fritz to turn into a rape revenge film. Is it because I immediately hated the lead characters? Probably. Is it because the inherent horror of this film is about the act of fucking a corpse? Also probably. 

Cultural and religious mores don't always translate the way they should, and this actually reminds me of another Spanish film about corpse fucking (I'm not dressing it up with the technical term, it's corpse fucking), Aftermath, and the similar way I felt about it afterwards. I was grossed out, for sure, but that was about as deep as it went and I didn't feel the revulsion and horror at the defiling of the corpse as was intended by the film.  

I think The Corpse of Anna Fritz will be like that for me, and I'll definitely be checking it out. 

Also, major points for not giving away the entire goddamn film like every other trailer I've seen recently.

Anna Fritz is a very famous and beautiful actress, considered one of the most desired women in the world. Suddenly, she dies.

Pau works as an orderly at the hospital where Anna Fritz was taken to. Pau is a shy and introverted youth. Often, when the body of a young woman is brought to the morgue, he can’t resist watching her. When he enters the morgue with the corpse of Anna Fritz, he takes a picture of her naked body and sends it to his friend Ivan.

Ivan and Javi are Pau’s only friends, and go visit him at the hospital. They are a little drunk and Ivan wants to see the naked body of Anna Fritz. She is there… They can't lose this opportunity.
