A Horrible Way to Die

de Adam Wingard


When Sarah discovered the terrible secret her boyfriend Garrick was hiding, he wound up in prison and she had no other choice but to run away and start a new life. Since then her new job, that she alternates with alcoholics anonymous meetings, has given her the stability she longed for, but her dark past is about to catch up with and torture her. Garrick has escaped and won't stop until he finds her. Two juxtaposed stories, credible characters and a unique aesthetic sense are just some of the cards director Adam Wingard very skillfully shuffles in this horror thriller that combines mystery with a trail of bodies.
