‘Play Dead’ Star Hypes Film, Calls It “Really Horrifying”

You’ll never get out of the morgue alive.

Play Dead–a new horror film from Voltage Pictures that premiered earlier this year at Cannes–is still waiting for a wide release date, but one of its stars recently teased the terrors to come.

Bailee Madison (The Strangers: Prey at Night) told Collider that the feature–which was filmed in the morgue of an abandoned asylum–is “very different. It’s so messed up.”

The actor added that the movie is “unlike anything I’ve ever done. It’s really horrifying. The film takes place in a morgue–and that’s really all I can say.”

Play Dead–directed by Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine 3D) from a screenplay by Adam Mason and Simon Boyes (Blood River)–also stars Jerry O’Connell, Anthony Turpel, Chris Butler, Chris Lee and Jorge-Luis Pallo.

The storyline follows criminology student Chloe (Madison), who “fakes her own death in order to break into a local morgue to steal a piece of evidence that ties her younger brother to a crime,” according to the synopsis.

But, once inside the morgue, Chloe discovers that the coroner (O’Connell) is “using the business as a front to sell body parts. When he discovers Chloe isn’t dead, a game of cat-and-mouse ensues.”
