She Dies Tomorrow ★★★

It Follows: Into Crippling Depression

Took a long while for me to actually get into this movie. I found myself getting caught up in the hope that the strange contagion of dread would be contextualized a bit more. Or, at the least, that the source of Amy's depression would be fleshed out. (It eventually is and it isn't.)

Similar to how It Follows can be read as a metaphor for surviving physical trauma, She Dies Tomorrow aims to give audiences insight into mental illness and depression. I appreciate the way Amy Seimetz approaches the subject matter and think it's a pretty unique way to dissect it.

It leads to a really satisfying final scene. But ultimately the entire movie felt a little too listless for my tastes.
