Trivia

After finding out where his kidnapped daughter is being held and killing and partially eating an assassin sent to kill him, Jack packs his remaining money and treasures in a satchel and runs from his apartment, obviously intending not to return and to disappear forever. In the following scene he sits in an alley, pulls an ancient knife from his satchel and, with a thoughtful look, reads an inscription which says: "Legi convictio scientia veritate." The translation of this phrase is tricky but very significant. It means: Knowledge (scientia) is obtained (legi) actually (veritate) through companionship, intimacy and social intercourse (convictio). In other words, you know life only through your close contact with your fellow humans. This goes to the heart of Jack's unhappy existence. He has cut himself off from all meaningful human connections, including his daughter, and has therefore left himself no way to experience life. This insight causes him to decide to rescue his daughter and maybe try to live a life with human connections. Thus, in the following scene he begins to execute his rescue plan and maybe even confront his Old Testament God in the process. See more »

Goofs

When playing bingo with multiple cards, around 36mins in, Jack is suppose to be super focused. However the cards clearly show that he is not stamping the called numbers on all the cards. He stamped B10 on two cards while this number is still unstamped on at least two other cards. Also, some of the numbers you hear aren't stamped at all. See more »

Has Potential of Cult-Movie
4 November 2018 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

The secluded anti-social Jack (Henry Rollins) spends most of the time at home sleeping and watching television. Every now and then he meets the hospital intern Jeremy (Booboo Stewart) to buy blood; he goes to the nearby diner where he is attended by the waitress Cara (Kate Greenhouse) that likes him; and he plays bingo in the local church. Out of the blue, he receives a phone call from his former girlfriend that asks him to meet their daughter Andrea (Jordan Todosey) in a bar. He brings Andrea home, breaking his routine and turning his life upside-down. When she is abducted by a local mafia, Jack is forced to unleash his latent violence.

"He Never Died" is a strange movie that has potential of cult-movie. The dark humor is excellent and Henry Rollins has top-notch performance in the role of a weird cannibal creature that never dies. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Ele Nunca Morre" ("He Never Dies")
