You should just go see it for yourself. Unless you shouldn't.

Thematic rigor mortis sets in long before the final reel.

Despite the meandering pace, and lack of fearsome thrills, After.Life is a chilling fairytale that grabs you and takes you on a strangely hypnotic ride.

There is too much reliance on one character's word against another which leads the audience back and forth over the truth.

takes its ambiguities all the way to the grave - and beyond.

makes you think too much about what it's doing, rather than what it's about, thus drawing you away from the deeper philosophical questions of life and death at its core

Born again Ricci haunts a mortuary, while perfecting post-mortem freaky in the nude. This may or may not be your cup of embalming fluid, whether intriguing those with unconventional viewing preferences, or seriously creeping you out.

Confusing chiller explores death; too dark for teens.

It dresses up boilerplate horror in a classy shell, yet never gives it the pulse it needs.

A stylish piece of horror-movie hokum.

Has some first-timer flaws but avoids 'cheesy horror movie' status by serious tapping into the vein Poe mined for premature burial.

It's too dull for grown-ups and too nightmarish for children. It makes Nip/Tuck look like a Mel Brooks musical.

Best of all is Neeson, who is nicely creepy. Whether he's genuinely gifted or knuckle-chewing insane, he's not the kind of guy you'd want to spend time with, either way.

An atmospheric effort curious enough to intrigue both hardcore horror fans and those simply looking for a good thriller.

Plays like a snooty, deliberately obtuse version of Saw.

I have seen my share of cheapie horror flicks that invariably end with the CARNIVAL OF SOULS twist...[Wojtowicz-Vosloo] knows you know this stuff, and offers it up as a possibility right off the bat.

Sporadically creepy, stylish and initially suspenseful, but ultimately unimaginative, asinine and deficient in clever surprises and palpable thrills.

a distasteful exercise in the proper disposition of the deceased during funeral preparations with less blood in it than the corpses that populate it

Doesn't really work either as a scary movie or as a food-for-thought cautionary tale.

Almost imperceptibly, the 'is she alive or dead' equation takes over the entire affair.
