Movie "A Horrible Way To Die" (2010)

About the Movie: Forget everything you've ever seen in a serial killer movie and get ready for the chiller that stunned festival audiences around the world: Notorious murderer Garrick Turrell (AJ Bowen of HOUSE OF THE DEVIL and HATCHET II) has escaped from police custody and resumed his killing spree. His former girlfriend Sarah (Amy Seimetz of ALEXANDER THE LAST) is a recovering alcoholic trying to put her life back together in a new town with a new man (Joe Swanberg of NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS). Her past continues to haunt her. And now her ex-boyfriend is leaving a trail of slaughter in his hunt to find her. From Adam Wingard, the director of the award-winning film POP SKULL and screenwriter Simon Barrett (DEAD BIRDS) comes the movie experience that is emotionally raw, disturbingly graphic and brutally real. Prepare yourself for A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE.

My Review: This is a horror/thriller movie directed by Adam Wingard with a very interesting plot. A young lady (Sarah/Amy Seimetz) finds out that her boyfriend (Garrick/A.J.Bowen) is a serial killer and turns him in to the authorities. While trying to recover herself from drinking problems, she finds what it seems to be a nice guy (Kevin/Joe Swanberg) at an AA meeting. When her ex-boyfriend escapes from custody and starts to pursuit her, her nightmare starts all over again. She fears for her life and for the life of her new boyfriend. The movie goes in a slow motion action until its final 20 minutes, which are electrifying and unpredictable. Amy Seimetz does an incredible work and by far she is the highlight of the movie.
If you like action, this movie is not for you. But for those who like blood and graphical scenes or murder, this is the one.

This movie was released in DVD in September 2011 and was kind enough to provide this copy for me through their Vine Program for reviewing and I was not request to provide a positive review. Opinions expressed here are my own.

Length of Movie: 84 minutes
