Verdict on Don’t Kill Me
Don’t Kill Me is a fantasy horror following a teenage lover who dies from an overdose. She returns from the dead with a hunger for human flesh. This leads her to find herself in the middle of a war between the undead and the people making sure they stay dead.
The movie is a fun little fantasy horror romance that could fit into the same group as others with the unknown undead. It shows the confusion around coming back from the dead and not having everything the same way as originally expected. We see how chaotic the new world becomes for her and we are kept guessing as to where things could end up going.
Final Thoughts – Don’t Kill Me is an interesting fantasy horror movie.
