Emma (Megan Fox) is currently in a dull and soulless marriage. So bored in her marriage, she has even considered seeing another man but can never actually go through with it. This year, her husband has a special treat for the two of them on their wedding anniversary. Instead of having a typical night celebrating at a restaurant and exchanging gifts, Emma’s husband has booked a lakehouse with hopes the two will have time alone and a touch of romance.
But the following day, Emma is in for the shock of her life. When she wakes up, she finds herself handcuffed to her dead husband and covered in his blood. To move around, she has no choice but to drag her husband’s dead body with her while she attempts to get free. But soon, Emma finds more surprises have been left for her. A pair of criminals arrive to break into the lakehouse where she is stranded, but even worse, these two men might be connected to Emma’s dark and tragic past.
For the most part, this film is set in one central location. The film’s opening is a little slow, but I found myself highly entertained and invested in Emma. Megan Fox’s portrayal of Emma is quite enjoyable, and the actress certainly delivers one of the better performances I have seen from her in some time. Granted, moments that include dialogue with other characters might seem slightly unfitting at times. Still, this film focuses on delivering moments of suspense and tension as we follow Emma attempting to survive and gain freedom rather than dialogue. I felt the film did this quite well.
I loved the look of this film but what was more impressive were minor details such as the musical score and detail from the audio effects. The audio effects delivered a few surprises and added a pleasing smile to my face.
Overall, I found this thriller to be a pleasant surprise. While the film is set in one location for most of the runtime, I found myself quite engaged and entertained by the plot. Actress Megan Fox delivers an adequate performance to the screen, which was great to see. The film’s audio track was a blast, and it managed to create a great atmosphere to match everything on screen. Till Death is a guilty pleasure and is brainless entertainment no matter any issues I had with it. Till Death (2021) is Now Available on Blu-ray & DVD!
