The Reeds and Seeing Your Death Looking Back at You: A Movie Review

*here be spoilers.

Director: Nick Cohen.

Writers: Mark Anthony Galluzzo and Chris Baker.

Laura (Anna Brewster), Joe (Daniel Caltagirone), Mel (Emma Catherwood), Nick (O.T. Fagbenle) and Chris (Will Mellor) head out on a boat rented to them by Mr. Croker (George Bell).

This is some foreshadowing for events to come as several cast members will meet a similar fiery fate. »
