The Horror Comedy: He Never Died
He Never Died is an American/Canadian horror comedy film which, to me, looks more hilarious than scary. When I first saw it’s trailer I made a premature presumption: taking into consideration the sound which is pretty bad, the atmosphere kind of gloomy, the visuals too dark, He Never Died has no chance to reach a favorable success. But when I passed the first minute of the trailer, things began to change. I enjoyed every second of it, my interest in this movie increased and the visuals and sound were not that bad after all. They actually match perfectly the theme, the dark humour and the cynical characters.
More than that, if we take a look at the scores “He Never Died” holds on the film-scoring websites, we can notice a big majority of positive opinions. After its world premiere on 17 March, 2015 at South by Southwest, on IMDb the film is scored 7.6 out of 10 and 83% positive reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. Scott Weinberg of Nerdist, in his review affirms “He Never Died is a cool, confident, frequently sarcastic, and unexpectedly accomplished piece of work that’d probably still work pretty well with a different actor in the lead role, but then we’d be missing out on the best work of Henry Rollins’ career.”
The compelling film will be out on December 18, 2015.
