The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Clay Foster is a man in denial over his wife's brutal murder. He keeps his wife's corpse while trying to uncover the mystery of her death.
Clay Foster was once a very happy man married to his wife Lily. But Lily is now dead and Clay keeps his wife's corpse while he attempts to unravel the truth about how she died and who killed her. To make matters worse he must deal with Death himself who has come to take Lily to her final resting place.
"I Love You to Death" is a horror/romance that is as much a mystery as it it anything else. The story slowly unfolds and as it does we are fed a little piece of the puzzle at a time regarding Lily and who killed her and why. This is a story of love so strong it reaches beyond death but will Clay be strong enough to face the truth and move on? The film is definitely an original take on the horror genre. I don't think this is going to be for everyone, those that love mainstream horror may find this a taxing on their patience but Indie fans are sure to find it to be the gem that it is.
The story really grabs your interest right from the start, it's romantic yet disturbing at the same time but there is no denying Clay's love for Lily. To talk about the story too much here would only create spoilers and ruin the film for those wanting to see it so I am not going to go into any details here but I can tell you that the mystery is thick and it keeps you guessing all the way to the end regarding who killed Lily and why. There are numerous characters that are tossed into the mix which just adds to the suspense and tension. The entire cast did a terrific job including, Travis Mendenhall as Clay, Shannon O'Dowd as Lily and John Klemantaski as The Syphon. Terrific performances from all involved really took the film up another level for me.
As I mentioned before, I don't think this is going to be a film for everyone but if you're a fan of Independent cinema or just looking for something different to watch then this is the movie for you. A unique blend of horror and romance wrapped around an intelligent and clever mystery makes "I Love You to Death" a must-see. You can order the DVD HERE.
