Extraordinary job all around!
16 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent movie, over all. For a low budget film, "I Didn't Come Here to Die" was exceptionally well done, with superb character portrayals and just the right amount of humor and psychological-style-horror to keep it from being cheesy; a movie that leaves a lasting impression and a cringe at the thought of a chainsaw or an axe. The casting was amazingly done, each actor seemingly perfectly for the role they played in appearance and skill. I certainly won't be going camping any time soon without thinking of just how wrong any activity could go.

It is refreshing to find a horror flick that does not rely on an outside force to explain all of the horrible events that occur. And the movie was well-paced without any stalling by too-much dialogue or drawn-out scenes.

Danny (played by Kurt Cole) draws sympathy from the audience with his back-story that is told more through his acting than through the dialogue, a feat for any actor. While Chris (played by Niko Red Star) is the quintessential jerk that the audience waits to turn good, his character comes to life when he reacts to the events around him in a most believable way. Indiana Adams, Madi Goff, Jeremy Scott Vandermause, and Emmy Robbin each rose to the heights the roles called for, making the characters seem very real and gave remarkable performances.
