Review: Now That You're Dead (2009)

First I´d like to thank Patrick Rea again for suggesting that I´d take a look at his earlier work. Now That You're Dead is written and directed by Patrick Rea, it is a dark comedy about a cheating husband, his mistress and a murderous wife, with a supernatural twist. The poster is unfortunately a bit of a spoiler but there is more than one twist in this short film. Professionally shot and edited, good acting and a nice soundtrack. It has a good pacing, never gets boring, it has a good and nice atmosphere which gives chills and thrills and will put a smile on your face. Not much gore to talk about and no T & A in this.
This review is based upon a online source provided by Patrick Rea.
Rating: 6½ out of 7. Now That You´re Dead is very nice, it´s highly reminicent of the classic The Twilight Zone tv-series. Patrick Rea´s short films consistently delivers the goods, interesting plots and high production values. Patrick Rea is now one of the few directors that I associate with quality (the flipside to that coin is that I might have a bit too high expectations...
