After.Life trailer online in HD

AfterLife.jpgThe film has been talked about for some time now, but finally we get to see a full trailer, and it's one you can see in high definition too. After.Life is the story of a woman who is lying in the funeral parlour awaiting her funeral, fighting for her life, and there's only one man who knows she's alive, the funeral director.

It sounded an interesting story, and even the blurb, which I'll copy below, sounds good, but the trailer doesn't have that same feel or urgency, and doesn't make good use of the time it has.

After.Life, looking at this trailer below, turns out looking a little half hearted and seems to be your average “run away from the bad guy” film, and yet the story has so much promise. Here's a bigger write-up:

After a horrific car accident, Anna (Christina Ricci) wakes up to find the local funeral director Eliot Deacon (Liam Neeson) preparing her body for her funeral. Confused, terrified, and feeling still very much alive, Anna doesnt believe shes dead, despite the funeral director's reassurances that she is merely in transition to the afterlife. Eliot convinces her he has the ability to communicate with the dead and is the only one who can help her.

Trapped inside the funeral home, with nobody to turn to except Eliot, Anna is forced to face her deepest fears and accept her own death. But Anna's grief-stricken boyfriend Paul (Justin Long) still can't shake the nagging suspicion that Eliot isnt what he appears to be. As the funeral nears, Paul gets closer to unlocking the disturbing truth, but it could be too late; Anna may have already begun to cross over to the other side.

See, it sounds a hell of a lot better than the trailer looks. You can see the trailer below or head over to Apple Trailers for it in high definition.

It has to be better than that doesn't it? It's got Liam Neeson in it, and he's looking like the best thing in the film, apart from that red slip of course.



Hmmm, is it me or does the acting seem a little slightly wooden (Ricci reminds me of a student in a school production). The story does sound very interesting, but the trailer does makes it look like a half baked cake made by a bored chef.

It is an interesting premise. I suspect the marketing folks decided to dial up the genre stuff to pull in the fan boys. But the trailer does have some interesting bits. Intriguing enough for me to check out the film when it comes out.

I think it's the premise of the film and the promise of Neeson that will win me over to see this.
