What's actually afoot is a full-on horror remake of Monsters, Inc.

...one's ability to genuinely enjoy The Deaths of Ian Stone depends considerably on one's tolerance for David Lynchian headtrips...

Probably the best of the 8 Films to Die For released in 2007 as part of the AfterDark Horror Fest, The Deaths of Ian Stone is influenced quite a bit by Memento, The Matrix and even Cemetery Man.

Audience Reviews for The Deaths of Ian Stone

A nice little surprise this one turned out to be, shame it's not more highly thought of. The story is intriguing and at least original and I was gripped right up to the end. It's all well paced and lively with some good action and decent special effects, the odd splattering of gore too but nothing OTT. The setting of the film in England was a bit of a bizarre choice with an American lead, Ice Hockey isn't even a major sport over here either! But despite those minor gripes this was a very entertaining film worthy of a watch.

It boasts an original idea and good acting but ultimately it was neither scary or interesting. Fans of horror and science fiction will enjoy it im sure but it grows tired in the second half after a good start.

Meh. It had a neat plot at first, then became some lame thing about him being a fear monster....by that point I fell asleep I think.

I felt the premise was pretty original and this was definitely one of the better 2007 Horrorfest films (there were some pretty bad ones). The effects were pretty good, not too many in your face scares, but the story moved along nicely. Could've been a little scarier I suppose, but it was interesting enough to keep my attention.
