She Dies Tomorrow

A woman believes she'll die tomorrow, and her fear proves infectious, in this SXSW-selected psychological horror. Written and directed by Amy Seimetz (The Girlfriend Experience).

Amy (Kate Lyn Sheil) is ravaged by the notion that she is going to die tomorrow, which sends her down a dizzying emotional spiral. When her sceptical friend Jane (Jane Adams) discovers Amy’s feeling of imminent death to be contagious, they both begin bizarre journeys through what might be the last day of their lives.

Its plot is so deliberately opaque that it seems to be daring you to mentally check out at every non-turn and un-twist.

Amy Seimetz wrote and shot her film long before the Covid-19 pandemic. But the parallels are undeniably eerie.

A wholly unpredictable rollercoaster that wickedly refuses to conform.

It's an eerie essay in creeping dread and collective hysteria, about the fear of something awful just outside your field of vision.

Unnerving and compelling in equal measure.

Takes a preposterous premise - if one that stares us in the face every day - and keeps on the right, eerie side of dramatising it.

Coloured lights, unidentifiable soundscapes, a heavy pace, and the never-ending strains of the Requiem cast a spell of existential dread.

A textured mood piece, full of existential dread, that confounds as much as it mesmerises.

Dazed but far from confused, She Dies Tomorrow tugs at you, nagging to be viewed more than once.

Entertainment Weekly

Entertainment Weekly

The movie's messy humanity meets its existential panic and the story takes hold, finding strange resonance and even a kind of absurdist comedy in its end times.

Vanity Fair

Vanity Fair

Feels as honed and intentional as it is elaborate, and as personal, even autobiographical, as it is speculative and somewhat removed.

Seimetz films this coldly ghoulish and derisive fable with quiet intensity and rage at the way of the world.

There is a rare, unrefined quality to Seimetz's film - a personal work of art that feels deeply honest throughout.

Potent and pointed, whether it's psychodrama or anxiety-fuelled allegory.

Perhaps as a result of her attempting to avoid all matter of clichés, not just of genre, Amy Seimetz revels in vagueness.

Amy Seimetz plays by her own rules like this is the last film she’ll ever make (it won’t be, no shot). She Dies Tomorrow ponders self-fulfillment with agency and riveting execution.
