A Very Weird Interpretation of Death
17 November 2007 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

For "My Skin!" Tony Simmons returns as Death. I can understand why Broadstone chooses Simmons. Not only was he perfect for "Scream For Me", but he is a versatile actor as well. If I didn't read the credits, I would never have recognized him as the same actor in a hundred years.

This story takes place on September 12, 2001 which I found a bit odd (the day after 9/11). Maybe it's coincidence, but I don't think so. And it has a very strange version of Death, this time wearing a bird mask and actively changing events in another person's life. I've never seen a representation where Death was so full of spite -- he's usually just depicted doing his job.

But this leads to a philosophic interpretation of murder. Who has the right to take another life? According to Death, only him -- no person or state has the right to do what he has been granted the power to do. I found this a very interesting concept, and Broadstone's power as a writer shows again by this consideration that most people wouldn't entertain. While not quite as good as "Scream For Me" (this is much less intense and the second of "3 dead girls" is already dead from the start), this is still so much better than one would normally be exposed to. I loved it.
