Halloween Disc-A-Day: Day 26 Living Death

This project is an attempt to help me get dvds that for one reason or another I’ve never seen off of my shelf and give them a watch.  Today’s pick is Living Death.

IMDb: Living Death (Video 12 December 2006)
The masochist Elizabeth lives a marriage of convenience with the cynical, sadistic and reckless playboy Victor, who is the heir of a huge inheritance including the mansion where they live. …

I hate every character in this movie,  The plot is a husband is poisoned by puffer fish toxin by his unfaithful wife and her lover, but he was only in a near-death state so he comes back for revenge.  It’s tired, recycled made-for-TV bullshit which normally I’m willing to just go along with but if it were a TV movie, it would probably be better.  Revenge doesn’t work without a somewhat sympathetic lead and it’s real difficult to build up anything resembling sympathy for the biggest piece of human garbage you are like to ever see.  This stars Christy Swanson as the only person you might recognize, but who cares.  No offense intended to her, I’m just sick of discussing this movie.

Check out some Motion Picture Meltdown episode on other Kristy Swanson movies that are much better than this like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Deadly Friend, and The Phantom.
