Jamie Marks Is Dead | Review

Directed by Carter Smith (The ruins) and Starring Cameron Monaghan (Shameless), Noah Silver (Tyrant), Morgan Saylor (Homeland) and Madisen Beaty (The Master) is an American drama film based on Christopher Barzak novel “One for Sarrow.”

The Plot: Adam McCormick (Cameron Monaghan) becomes fascinated with Jamie Marks (Noah Silver), a classmate who was found dead by the river by Gracie Highsmith (Morgan Saylor). Nobody really knew Jamie or interacted with him except maybe to bully him. When Jamie’s ghost starts to appear to both Adam and Gracie, Adam forms a deep connection to him, which brings him closer to the world of the undead.

Review: I probably never would have seen this movie now, if it wasn’t for this blog. I mean, it eventually would have caught my attention, mostly because of the castand I’d ended up watching it.

Anyway, the film has an eerie feel to it and I mean that in a good way. The cast managed to keep their performances emotionally realistic to turn the movie into a drama and not an horror movie. Although part of the movie didn’t really make sense to me, like the word thing, WTF? or what happens to Adam’s mother (Liv Tyler). It is obvious that a lot of scenes were cut and that’s probably why I feel weird about this film. I kind of liked it even though I think something’s missing.

If you’ve seen the movie or read the book drop me a line and let me know what you thought?
