Director SK Dale is brilliant in his film debut. It nails the Hitchcockian aspects of the narrative. Emma, a woman with the body of a model, has to carry a much larger man while avoiding detection. She uses snow, corners, and diversionary tactics to sneak around. Ninety percent of To death takes place at the lake house. Dale’s blocking of very tight settings, clever editing, and stark lighting paint a pretty suspenseful picture. To death reminded me of David Fincher’s classic, Panic room.
Megan Fox steps out of her comfort zone and pays dividends. Honestly, I never thought much of her as an actress. His character spends the entire movie under increasing levels of distress. She is unexpectedly good at emotionally and physically tough acting. To death It is an indie gem that deserves to be seen. It’s a satisfying thriller and well done on all fronts. To death is a Millennium Media, Brave Carrot and Campbell Grobman Films production. It is currently in theatrical release and is available on demand from Screen Media Films. Till Death Review
