MOVIE NEWS – More than a decade after Infernal Girl (2009), Megan Fox is returning to horror.
Till Death, S.K. Dale’s feature film, has had new images released that show the actress as a woman who finds herself trapped by her husband’s corpse.
With a premise quite similar to Gerald’s Game, a Stephen King short story that was turned into a film on Netflix by Mike Flanagan (The Curse), the plot of Till Death follows Emma (Megan Fox), a woman who is the target of a terrible vendetta and is left chained to her husband’s body while she must find a way to defend herself from two hitmen hired to kill her.
Indeed the suspense thriller, which looks set to demand a tour-de-force9*8/+ performance with a hand from Megan Fox, finds the character waking up after a romantic night at the lake house with her husband, handcuffed to his corpse and covered in blood. Trapped and isolated in the dead of winter, she must fight off assassins seemingly under her late husband’s instructions to finish her off in a twisted plot of his creation. The film is Fox’s first entry into the genre since the highly underrated Jennifer’s Body in 2009, and is also the feature debut of S. K. Dale, who previously directed the award-winning short The Coatmaker.
Earlier this month, Screen Media released a statement saying, “Megan’s performance will leave you on the edge of your seat all the way through. ” Producer Jeffrey Greenstein added, “At a time when people need entertainment more than ever, we couldn’t be more excited to team up again with Screen Media to bring the world this unique and exciting film that will certainly be a welcome distraction.” With the aforementioned similarities to Gerald’s Game, maybe it’s not so unique after all, but let’s not argue about technicalities.
In addition to Megan Fox, the cast also features Eoin Macken (The Night Shift), Aml Ameen (Sense8), Callan Mulvey (300: Rise of the Empire) and Jack Roth. The screenplay is by Jason Carvey, and the feature was produced by David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, screenwriter of the Evil Summoning franchise.
There is still no release date for Till Death in Europe. Outside, the film arrives on July 2.
