Editorial Reviews

What if a stranger held the key to the darkest moment of your life? Dylan (Nick Stahl) is haunted by his past. While searching for answers, he befriends a mysterious woman (Rose McGowan) and is reunited with an old love (Amy Smart) who seem to raise more questions than they answer. Now on the brink of madness, Dylan is transformed by supernatural forces and discovers that no one is who they seem.

Customer Reviews

I thought this movie will be ok, but it wasn't.
Buckjones
The music is stunningly terrible at times, as the editors attempt to squeeze a little emotion from these ill conceived scenes that appear on the screen.
Tony C.
This may be nitpicking on my part, but I also think the title just terrible.

"Dead Awake" begins as a slow, meandering, bizarre, inexplicable story that shows us a lot and yet doesn't seem to be going anywhere. By the time we discover that the film is indeed about something, we've already passed the point at which we can still care about it. We then have to endure a twist ending that's not only painfully unoriginal, but is also deeply connected to a plot hole big enough to drive a truck through. I went through three distinct emotional stages watching this film. The first was intense dislike, for it seemed as if the film's sole purpose was to hopelessly confuse the audience. The second was a quiet, reserved sense of acceptance, and it came to me the moment I finally realized that the filmmakers were in fact aiming for something. The third was disappointment, since it was obvious that their aim was way off.

The film is a moody psychological drama that always looks muddy and out of focus. It continuously hints at the supernatural and yet never gets around to confirming or denying it until the very end, at which point all interest in the subject has passed. The main character is Dylan (Nick Stahl), an emotionally distant young man who still broods over a car accident from ten years ago. He visits the crash site every year on the anniversary of the crash, and as he explains to the detective who handled the case, something about the situation just doesn't add up. He's currently a funeral director, having given up on college and life in general. He often has trouble sleeping. He's on anxiety medications. He continuously plays with a yoyo, believing its ability to keep returning to his hand is symbolic of the mistakes that keep coming back to haunt him.

It takes some time to know what is going on and what this movie is really about. The script lacks in that respect, and some of the photography is distractingly filtered. This does not take away from the performances, esp. by Nick Stahl and Rose McGowan, as an undertaker and a junkie who get mixed up in each other's lives.

Ever wonder who would show up at your funeral? After attending a funeral for an old high school friend and running in to his ex-girlfriend (Amy Smart) Dylan (Stahl) comes up with a plan to stage his own death and hold a funeral for himself. When a strange crack addict (McGowan) shows up to see him his life takes a strange turn and nothing is what it seems. This movie is hard to explain without giving anything away, but the best way I can put it is that it is a cross between the "Sixth Sense" and "After.Life". I really enjoyed the movie and I'm not sure if it was because I had no expectations heading in or because it was actually a very good movie (if that makes sense). This is more of a drama then horror, in the same way the "Sixth Sense" could be categorized either way. I really liked the twist at the end, I honestly can predict about 95% of movies made lately and this one got me. I was very surprised at how much I liked it. I surprisingly give it a B+.

Would I watch it again? - I would, if only to catch clues I missed the first time.

I thought 'Dead Awake' was a totally cool film. Well acted... well directed... and great camera angles. ~Stefano Capone (IMDB)

Underrated drama with a unique point of vieW. I've never seen Rose McGowan so touching. The plot is sometimes overcomplicated. But if you let yourself go, you might get lost in a very beautiful movie. I really enjoy the feeling of being slightly lost in a movie. Good suspense and nice twists.
Too bad the blu Ray is 'absolutely horrendous. The visual aspect is ugly (especially in the Dark scenes) and the sound mix is barely average). Which is a shame.
