I don’t know about you, but this year 2020, because of the COVID19 pandemic (and the fact that my savings are not as abundant as one could desire) traveling has been totally out of the question. I miss having a big vacation trip, maybe somewhere exotic like Thailand. Yes, that sounds like a good plan! And if I can’t do it, why don’t I watch other people having a vacation blast? Then, I pick up the movie Death of Me (2020) but… oops.

In Death of Me (2020), vacationing on an island off the coast of Thailand, couple Neil and Christine awake hungover and with no memory of the previous night. They find footage on Neil’s camera, and watch, horrified, as Neil appears to murder Christine. With twenty-four hours until the next ferry and a typhoon threatening the island, Christine and Neil attempt to reconstruct the night’s events, and are snared in a web of mystery, black magic, and murder.

Death of Me (2020) is the new film of one of the most hardworking filmmakers in the horror scene, Darren Lynn Bousman. He has been behind titles like St. Agatha (2018), Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008), Mother’s Day (2010), 11-11-11 (2011), The Devil’s Carnival (2012), and several entries of the Saw movie saga including for many the best one of them all, Saw II (2005). The screenplay was written by Arli Margolis, James Morley III, and David Tish. Maggie Q, Luke Hemsworth, Alex Essoe, and Kat Ingkarat form the main cast of the movie.

Saban Films acquired distribution rights to Death of Me (2020), and it is scheduled to be released on October 2, 2020. It has been Rated R for violence, gore, sexual content, and language. Here you can watch its official trailer.
