She Dies Tomorrow

Director: Amy Seimetz
Year Released: 2020
Rating: 1.0

A woman named Amy (Kate Lyn Sheil) is convinced she's going to die tomorrow (why you ask? why not?) tells her friend Jane (Jane Adams) about it, and then Jane thinks she's also going to die, so she tells a bunch of people, and then they start to believe the same thing, etc.  There's a tiny kernel of a good idea for a horror movie in there that future filmmakers might want to take note of (using an earworm to unnerve the audience) but the movie is nihilistic and rather pointless: is it supposed to be a memento mori?  Is it supposed to be scary?  The abrupt cuts are unintentionally funny (like the editor forgot where she left off), there isn't nearly enough background detail for the characters to make them human and "death" itself looks like a strobing Gaspar Noé film ... which, now that I think of it, is a little unnerving.
