Dead Story full movie review - Its a dead story all right, it flat-lined 5 minutes into the movie
While watching this, I was considering giving it 2 or 3 stars, if only for the slight rights-after-marriage subplot going on. But the ending destroyed all hopes for this nonsensical boring little film. Here's why you shouldn't watch it:
1) It treats the audience like idiots. This means it not only has some very awkward and 'well duh' dialogue, but also abandons any subplots it picks up, resulting in huge disappointments. The ghost wants the husband dead? Abandoned. The husband resents the wife for not having a 9-5? Abandoned. OK how about the wife is a mature independent woman? Abandoned.
2) The scares are stupid. You'll find this out even before the opening credits. One scare consists of a knife disappearing from a sink, and then reappearing again. That's it. The 'ghost' seems to have been adapted from Asian horror, has no backstory, and doesn't fit well in this film.
3) Everything else. Writing, directing, acting, score, cinematography, EVERYTHING is sub-par.
There is NO reason to see this movie, NO interesting twist, NO bizarre monster, NOT even for shits and giggles. Don't encourage such bland productions.
