Worse than fear is only the fear of fear. And fear is, first and foremost, contagious. Any is convinced that she will die tomorrow and even her skeptical girlfriend Jane cannot change her mind. On the contrary: slowly but surely, her destructive thoughts infect Amy‘s entire environment like a malevolent virus. Side effect of the omnipresent anxiety is a general distrust that drives the characters even deeper into isolation. In almost frighteningly prophetic accuracy, director and screenwriter Amy Seimetz, who made a name for herself as an actress in films like »Upstream Color« and »Alien: Covenant«, anticipates the unease in the times of a pandemic. With her third film as a director, Seimetz has become one of the most uncompromising filmmakers of American cinema. »She Dies Tomorrow« is a visionary nightmare that conquers new terrain somewhere between Cronenberg‘s body-horror and Bunuels surrealism.
