Spanish Horror has a bit of a history with transgressive sexual desire or behavior (see: Aftermath, La Madre Muerta, In a Glass Cage) and upcoming SXSW Midnighter The Corpse of Anna Fritz looks to keep the sick tradition alive.
The feature debut of Hèctor Hernández Vicens, The Corpse of Anna Fritz finds a crew of men looking for infamy by sexually violating the fresh corpse of a gorgeous actress. Whether they do or not certainly isn’t the question as this brief, NSFW teaser quickly goes there. What Vicens and his team are doing with the premise of course, remains to be seen.
Here’s the full synopsis: 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 cant 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 Paus 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.
