User Reviews

 
It's as hardcore as the man who stars in it.
22 December 2015 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

He Never Died picked the perfect man to star in this movie. I don't know if Henry Rollins was the filmmaker's choice for the role or the role just fits him like a tailored suit, but it feels so Rollins.

It's a low budget movie about monsters and demons done well. The filmmakers did a lot with what little they had. No huge special visual effects or making up. Usual when movies are unable to fit that into the budget it makes the whole thing cheesy but they came up with an excellent story plot that makes up for it. Plus, the tone the movie was laid out in adds depth (and some cool violent scenes) that takes the place of monster effects as well.

The technical film making does not look cheap like I was expecting for a movie in this caliber. It was a stellar production.

A stellar production that relied greatly on the wonderful acting being done, especially by Rollins himself. An easy task possibly, as it seems he's playing a man he can relate to on a level.

I saw Rollins star in the sequel to Wrong Turn and just like that movie, he was the best part of the experience, but unlike Wrong turn 2, He Never Died has more than Rollins going for it.
