Movie Info

CHAIN OF DEATH, written by Porras (INSIDE THE BOX, IDA Y VUELTA) and Andres Rosende (THE BEAR, ESCAPE, SNAPSHOTS) and produced by Elisa Lleras (BITCH, INSIDE THE BOX, FRANKENSTEIN), follows the story of Dr. Mike Colleman (Amedori), a brilliant young doctor who's married to the girl of his dreams while enjoying the big city life. The fairy-tale lifestyle comes to a screeching halt as Mike learns that his mother Emma (Barbeau) can no longer take care of his father (Wise) who suffers from a Parkinson's Disease-like ailment and whose health is in a downward spiral. Soon Mike learns that he too suffers from the exact same neurological illness as his father and decides to voluntarily enter a "Chain" of assisted suicides in an effort to end his own misery. There's only one catch -- if you want to die, you must kill someone first.

Critic Reviews for Chain of Death

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Genre fans will be happy to see Barbeau and Wise, as well as the brief but gasp-inducing moments of gore. But it's laughably bad, leaving audiences to giggle while wondering if they're sharing in Mike's hallucinations or this crazy movie actually exists.

I can't commend the script enough. The supporting performances, particularly from Wise and Asensi, are riveting.

The film's pacing is a little uneven, and it builds to a climactic sequence that's more than a little preposterous, but the story has some bonkers twists and turns that make it compulsively watchable.

A thriller about the relationship between a father and his son. A really interesting perspective. [Full review in Spanish]

[The film's] Shyamalanesque traps are not effective. [Full review in Spanish]
