This incredible thriller is one of the best minimalistic films I’ve seen in a long time.
She Dies Tomorrow starts with Amy, who is absolutely convinced she’s dying tomorrow. She confides in her friend, who is unwilling to hear her conspiracy theory.
But then, something incredibly strange happens. Amy’s friend leaves, and soon becomes convinced she’ll die too. In the time of COVID, a film about a contagious thought process that leaves every person in contact convinced of their own impending mortality is all the more scary.
Writer-director Amy Seimetz, who wrote and directed The Girlfriend Experience, created a chilling, anxious nightmare of a movie, in the best possible way.
Perhaps what makes this low-budget feature so enticing is the game cast, each cut into vignettes for the most part. From Kate Lyn Sheil as Amy to Jane Adams, Katie Aselton, Chris Messina, Jennifer Kim, Tunde Adebimpe and surprise turns from Josh Lucas and Michelle Rodriguez, this is a really great showing.
It does an admirable job with very little, and will make you uneasy at the very least.
