A gruesomely alluring tale of long-simmering revenge...

Three rising stars of 1989 collectively hit career bottom in director Jonathan Mossek's unintentionally uproarious psychothriller. A mess of a film from start to finish,SKIP IT!!!

Very underrated and quite overlooked. This film had a decent story with amazing scenes of suspense and tension. It was a breath of fresh air, this one.

A thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat...it may not be the best movie but it was pretty intense

If it weren't so graphically grim, brutal & full of bitterness it might be unintentionally funny...not even a guilty pleasure, or one one should feel really guilty about...it may even attempt a lesson yet ultimately it is too sick to watch closely; bad enough to keep it on in the background, occasionally keeping up with what's going on...horrible dialogue, & MacDowell's delivery is particularly bad &, for a southerner, her southern accent is even terrible...let's not forget the over-the-top Whaley; I know, he's supposed to be a psychopath (hmmm, maybe he is unintentionally funny)...yep, the actors seem to have hit bottom alright; guess ya gotta make a living...again, it's tough, particularly for aging actresses, no matter how attractive (despite her disfiguring make-up)...

s Good as Dead was an entertaining, unpredictable roller coaster ride of a movie that was gripping and intense.
Frank Whaley makes the most amazing Villain,so good you want to slap him yourself.
The rest of the cast was great as well if you can overlook a little over acting by Andie MacDowell.
There are some twists and turns but I was satisfied with the ending.Not saying it was politically correct but then again there is nothing about this movie that is politically correct.
You have people calling other human beings Towel heads and saying thing like there are more Monkeys in this city 'New York' than there are in Africa,referring to African Americans. There are slurs against Jewish people and gays,no stone in the hate pool is left unturned.
It's not a gore film or torture porn but there are some very unsettling images and scenes that are sure to make you wince.I found it to be quite clever in writing and execution.
You feel some compassion for people that don't deserve it but I guess that's a part of being a
'a real human being'....
I give it a big thumbs up it's on Showtime on demand at the moment..

Nothing like a Woman Scorned, or Scorched in this case, but just when you think you've got it all figured out, it twists again.This was quite a Nail Biter

"As Good As Dead" was "As Good As Average" At Best.

As Good as Dead makes participating actor to fully expose their skills of role playing and persuade viewers in their actions. This movie is very tricky and keeps you guessing what is happing actually till the absolute end. Cary Elwes and Andie Macdowell do their best and it seems that they are fully capable to act properly in this highly surreal mysterious movie. The plot of this stunning thriller is impossible to tell in just a few words and there is no reason to exposing the storyline. It starts with a weird sermon in some kind of church that looks like religious sect. One of it?s member kills several innocent guys and action shifts seven years later when the leader of this group is mysteriously killed and his followers seek for revenge. If you like to download movies online, you should miss As Good As Dead that gives you opportunity to dwell into very intriguing story and enjoy great actor play. One of the best movies in thriller category awaits you.

had a very slow and boring neginning, then things started to role with a bit of excitment yet didn't last that long. The tiwst at the end was surprising, yet again it was reuined. The whole movie was like a puzzel, trying to fit all the missing pieces. I still dont understand what and why it happend !

Soyons clair, ça pue carr (C)ment. Le mec se fait torturer, c'est totalement gratuit. Pendant tout le film il clame son innocence et à la fin, on se rend compte qu'il a but (C) le leader de la secte. Ouah, le gros m (C)chant. La mère (Andie macdowell) et son fils tar (C), ça passe très moyen. Quant à l'homme de main n (C)o nazi, c'est sans int (C)rêt. Une pure daube...

Definately had potential, but I thought the directing of this movie let it down. Acting was okay, plot and storyline had potential. Ending was poor, could have milked it for effect, but it was like they ran out of budget and had to cut is short. =( But it wasn't bad, just a little disappointing.

Had some promise but missed the boat. I like Whaley, especially when he is a crazy person, but his talents under-used in this one.
