An unknown classic! See this movie and tell a friend!
AND THEN YOU DIE is based on the true story of Canadian drug kingpin Eddie Griffin (Kenneth Welsh). Griffin is a man with two lives. On one side he has a wife and son in an average suburban home, and on the other a crew of stone-killers. Unfortunately for Griffin, things start to go down in flames when he makes enemies of the RCMP and the Hells Angles in the same week, and one of his crew is blackmailed in to selling Griffin out.
I first saw this film on cable TV in college in about 1987, and I've been looking for it on video ever since. Finally I found it, and I was worried that I'd overestimated it in memory. I was wrong. This is an absolutely BRILLIANT movie about honor among thieves and the dark side of the law. It's intricate and perfectly paced with plenty of action. My only complaint is that the quality of the video I got is not very good. I hope enough people will watch it to create a demand for a re-issue!
