Movie Info

Greg Bryk (A History of Violence) stars in the direct-to-video gothic thriller Living Death as the wealthy Victor Harris, a sadistic, incorrigible beast of a man whose sole pleasure comes from physically beating his wife, Elizabeth (Buffy: The Vampire Slayer's Kristy Swanson), and torturing the others who surround him. Because Victor refuses to grant Elizabeth a divorce, she and Victor's attorney, Roman (Joshua Peace) scheme to lethally poison Victor and blame his death on illicit drugs. The plot appears to progress smoothly, and Victor is quickly buried in the ground. But all is not well - for the substance has only driven Victor into a state of paralysis, that preserves his five senses and his awareness of the goings on around him. He quickly regains control and escapes from his earthly prison, then traps Elizabeth and Roman in a secret chamber in his mansion and prepares an ugly onslaught of vengeance.

Critic Reviews for Living Death

Living Death markets itself like a Saw wannabe, and it does get a little nasty in its final frames, but for the most part the flick is a very familiar tale of meanness, adultery, and revenge.

Living Death is a nasty little ride that is never as perverse as it would like to be.

You won't care who lives or dies, and judging by the finale, neither did the filmmakers.

A fun and eerie little B movie.

This movie is a bit twisted. I never thought that people could overdose for a couple of days and wake up and be all normal again! The girl in the beginning of the movie when she was streched, that was horrible. She did not deserve that at all. In my honest opinion I feel he should of died for what he did to the first female, let alone his wife and lawyer. He should of died in the first part of the movie!

Interesting premise. It's strange, but when Victor is torturing for fun, the film is more enjoyable. When he tortures for revenge, its a little dull.
