"Right to Die," however, is not a bad entry in the "Masters of Horror" series. In fact, it's rather solid with an unexpected and appreciated cleverness. Martin Donovan, an indie film stalwart whose deadpan delivery I have always admired, stars as the film's protagonist. Existing in a troubled marriage, Donovan's situation goes from bad to worse as a horrible car accident puts his wife in a coma. Covered in burns, unrecognizable, and not able to live without technological intervention--the episode wrestles with whether or not Donovan should humanely let her die. Oh but there's one complication, his wife's spirit is restless. Every time her heart fails, but before she is revived, her gruesome specter is on the move seeking retribution on those that have wronged her in life.
I particularly liked the juxtaposition of the traditional horror story with the "Right to Die" political debate. That's what makes this episode unique, and there is genuine humor that is mined from this topic. The horror sequences are effective enough--if somewhat familiar.Read more ›
Honestly Episode is fairly good aside from her incredible performance. Other reviewers are missing something here.
What saves this episode from being boring is the great acting from every character in the movie and the mystery that builds up towards the second half of the story about who is actually going to live and who is actually going to die.
'Evil Dead' with Bruce Campbell. It most have made good because they made 2 sequels! Well back to Right to Die. The fx was some of the best out of this series. They did over do the sex scenes. I always say that if you can make a show that's a horror show and the writers know what they are doing you don't need sex. This was one of them They really could have added more,as I call it, sneak up scare back and forth, that's where you know it's going to happen because of the music, the slow pace and then nothing and then get ready to move on and wam! that is what does the job. Evil Dead was well known for that.
I liked the actors in Right to Die. But why did you guys stop making them? Or am I not paying attention. Well this is a 5 star and the skin donor scene was a blast!
A manipulative twerp named Cliff (Martin Donovan) and his beautiful wife Abbey (Julia Anderson) have a massive car accident which leaves the wife severely burned from head to toe and in a coma. Cliff, with the advice of his conniving lawyer Ira (Corbin Bornsen), decides he would like to pull the plug on her and set in motion a law suit that will result in millions of dollars be given to her beneficiary. The victim's mother is adamant that her daughter be kept alive and sets up petitions. What develops is a tale of vengeance as the victimized woman's ghost leaves her body whenever she "flat lines", and takes revenge on those who have scorned her. Her spirit is transported back in to her body once she is artificially resuscitated and waits to seek revenge once again the minute her heart stops beating.
Directed by Rob Schmidt ("Wrong Turn"), "Right to Die" has got to be one of the most stomach churning episodes I have seen to date (I have yet to finish watching all of Season 2). The gore is excruciatingly explicit and the subject matter disturbing. The body count is not as high as one might expect but there is enough blood and burnt flesh on display to keep those gore-hounds in check and those not expecting such graphic scenes of human suffering, will be pleasantly surprised. The main reasons this episode got to me was because it displays two aspects of human anguish that really irk me. The director did not shy away from exploiting these scenes of torment and showcases them in all of their gory glory in gooey explicit detail. The make-up effects are well done as is the gore effects and the performances are up to standard particularly Donovan.Read more ›
