The Good

Darren Lynn Bousman delivered an unexpected treat for October. Vacation horror a sub genre that we don’t get too often. Death of Me delivers a story follows Christine and Neil, an American couple after a night of partying wake up to an uncomfortable situation recorded from the night before. Maggie Q as Christine is great to watch. The story it self waste zero time getting started.

The Bad (mild spoilers)

Gaslighting, even the principle characters are very aware of what has happened and going on in the city. Still they constantly move forward with staying on the island even though it’s clear they are being lied to. This gets old after the first 5 interactions

Final Thoughts

Death of Me isn’t the best spooky season movie to watch. It is however entertaining and Darren Lyyn Bousman does a good job building a world I would never want to be in! Will this be a movie you revisit countless times. No but it pretty good for what it is!
