Critic Reviews for The Dead One
Audience Reviews for The Dead One
Based on a comic I'm not familiar with, this reminded me of the comic Love and Rockets in tone and the artwork in the beginning. The story idea is good, but the execution is off by miles. There is no tension built, the horror aspects were downplayed with no scares, and a superhero connotation was possibly thrown in. I enjoyed the religious overtones, but the movie seemed to lack focus. I applaud the effort, but can't recommend it.
An interesting story, but the movie itself just wasn't that great.
He comes to eat! Diego always felt strangely drawn to the Day of the Dead as something in his heritage seems to draw him to the holiday. While celebrating the Day of the Dead, Diego dies and wakes as a reincarnated demon of some sort. Diego must uncover why he has returned from the dead and what his motives will be moving forward. "The Aztecs and their religion will return to dominance." Brian Cox, director of Scorpion Spring, The Obit Writer, and Keepin It Real, delivers The Dead One. The storyline for this picture had a little potential but is not anything special overall. The settings are fascinating and deliver the scenes well and the soundtrack is solid; however, the acting is less than average. "The foretold days have come." The Dead One is currently airing on Showtime. I was surprised to see Wilmer Valderrama (That 70's Show), Joel Moore (Avatar & Grandma's Boy), and Angie Cepeda starring in this picture. Overall, the characters were not presented well and the film never picks a direction. The film is not a horror movie but I'm not sure I would call it a drama either. I recommend skipping this picture. "I have faith in what I see." Grade: F
