The film will be directed by Jeremy Kipp, best known for horror films such as Slapface and Dark Awakening.
Since its release in early August, The Mortuary Assistant has made it into the top 10 streaming games on Twitch and has become a bestseller on Steam. The game tasks gamers with the routine tasks of a mortuary assistant while enduring increasingly bizarre and terrifying encounters with a demonic entity. To survive, players must identify the correct demon and the corpse it has bonded with and exorcise it.
“There’s a quiet, unnerving tension in The Mortuary Assistant that seeps into the player, making it feel like something terrible could happen at any moment.”

The premiere date for the film adaptation and the cast will be announced at a later date.
