It has an interesting premise and admirable ambitions, but After.Life fails to deliver enough twists or thrills to sustain its creepy atmosphere.

Thematic rigor mortis sets in long before the final reel.
It dresses up boilerplate horror in a classy shell, yet never gives it the pulse it needs.
A stylish piece of horror-movie hokum.
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.
Ms. Wojtowicz-Vosloo seems to have spent too much time trying to make an art-house chiller instead of an effective film.
Unfortunately, the movie veers in the most predicable, Saw-like direction possible just as the characters are starting to crackle with originality.
You should just go see it for yourself. Unless you shouldn't.
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.
Proposes a novel scenario, but bogs it down with cliche filmmaking techniques so much, you'll be hoping we all just die and go to heaven; end of story.
After.Life is a well constructed supernatural horror film that is very original in its idea. The strength of the film lies with Liam Neeson's powerful performance as Mortician Eliot Deacon who has a gift of talking to the dead. I thought that the film was a breath of fresh air in the genre, and it was different considering all the remakes. With great direction from Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo, After.Life is a creepy horror films that should appeal to fans of the genre. With a great cast at hand, Vosloo delivers a unique and different film that is very much underrated. The mix of the supernatural and surreal elements helps create a terrific film that is definitely worth watching. What made this film really good was that it relied on atmosphere rather than shocks to create its horror, and it works very well. There's a very well thought out plot that will keep you guessing from start to finish and though it has its imperfections, this is a better film than what most critics have written about it. In other words, this is not a work that should be easily dismissed. A few elements could have been reworked; nonetheless it is an effective chiller that displays a very creepy and effective Liam Neeson which makes up for the film's flaws. If you love something different in the horror genre, give this film a shot, this is a work that is engaging, well directed and has some good performances. However, like I stated previously, Neeson is the one that makes this such a thrilling and eerie viewing experience. After.Life may be imperfect, but it's certainly better than most horror films that come out nowadays.As a low-budget film, this is one that is very well done and should satisfy any fan of the genre.
well athough i liked the idea it truly was confusing and you still dont get it wrapped up towards the end.
If I sat down and seriously wrote about this film it would inevitably be a commentary laden with spoilers. About the only thing I can say is that, even when she's naked, my eyes are forever drawn to Christina Ricci's forehead.
Meh. Interesting idea, but not really sure what was happening. I think she was dead, but how can she move stuff around (i.e. break stuff). If it wasn't for Christina Ricci, not sure I would have made it through.
