Critic Reviews for Dead Awake
Though the performers gamely try to make the most of what little they have to work with, the film is murky to look at and unfocused in its storytelling. "Dead Awake" is a deadly snore.
If you think this is going to be an okay movie, you are dead wrong. This film is DOA"
Audience Reviews for Dead Awake
A spooky, mysterious little indie romance, spiced with nuanced performances, about a life wasted with guilt. A man (Nick Stahl, and why isn't this guy A-list?) struggles for a way out and with whether he really wants a way out when he meets a young junkie who's a lot worse off than he ... it's uneven and quirky and yet somehow charming.
Bad... just bad...
Things turn strange for a morbid funeral director's assistant obsessed with an accident in the past when two women suddenly enter his life: his high school ex-girlfriend, and a crackhead who believes he is her guardian angel. This intended psychological thriller is more interesting as a drama for the first two thirds, but blows everything in the final act with a "you gotta be kidding me" ending.
