Available today at select theaters across the country, as well as On Demand, is the thriller Till Death.
Till Death stars Megan Fox, Callan Mulvey, Eoin Macken, Ami Ameen and Jack Roth.
Emma (Fox) is stuck in a loveless marriage to Mark. A horrific incident happened to Emma years ago, and Mark helped her with it. Sadly, the scars from that incident remained causing issues in their marriage. It’s evident from the start that Emma doesn’t love her husband anymore, and in fact, she doesn’t appear to be too fond of him either.
For their 10th wedding anniversary, Mark takes Emma out to dinner and presents her with a elaborate piece of jewelry. In addition, he whisks her away to their secluded lake house, even though it’s the dead of winter.
The night seems to be romantic, but you can tell that Emma is just going through the motions.
The next morning Emma awakens to find herself handcuffed to her dead husband. Not only is she literally stuck to him, but she has no way of calling for help. She’s in the middle of no where during the frigid cold winter. There are no neighbors and no one know she’s there.
To make matters worse, Emma soon finds that she’s not alone. She learns that she was the target of a plan that gets more sinister at every turn.
Will Emma survive? Will anyone come to help her? And what was the plan that involved Emma and being handcuffed to her husband? To find out, go see or rent Till Death. Look for it at a theater near you, or On Demand.
I will admit that I’m not a big Megan Fox fan. I always give credit where credit is due, and I think Megan Fox did very well in this film. After all, she has to drag around a dead body through most of the film. I’m sure that was not easy.
Megan does play off the aloof and unhappy wife very well. Even when you think she would be happy, she’s not. She pulled it all off like she was a true “ice queen.”
I love the story idea. In a day and age where it seems like storylines are just being re-hashed and played by different actors, it’s refreshing to see a totally unique idea. Just the idea of being handcuffed to a dead body in a place where no one knows where you are and there is no way to contact anyone is interesting enough. Add in the other plot twists in this film, and you have a unique and brilliant story for a film.
This film reminded me a lot of Gerald’s Game where a woman was handcuffed to a bed by her husband and he dies, leaving her with no way of getting help. The idea is similar here, but in Gerald’s Game the wife is handcuffed to the bed. In Till Death, the wife is handcuffed to her dead husband and able to move about the house (while dragging his body up/down stairs).
The “being handcuffed and unable to escape” idea is nothing new, but the way that is pulled off in this film is.
I often review films where I’ve seen it once and I’ll never watch it again. Then there are movies that I review that I would definitely watch again if I saw it on television, premium channels or streaming service (Netflix, Hulu…). I would definitely watch Till Death again. I really liked the film. It kept my attention the entire time. From start to finish it was an interesting and entertaining film.
Below is the film’s trailer for your entertainment.
