Story: Till Death starts when Emma (Fox) finds herself caught in an affair with Tom (Ameen), after her marriage with Mark (Macken) starts getting difficult. She has been recovering from a brutal attack and learns the person responsible is about to be released from prison.

Verdict on Till Death
Till Death is a horror thriller that follows a wife that finds herself handcuffed to her dead husband. Only for things to get even worse, when criminals who nearly killed her arrive to finish the job.
This is a clever thriller that uses the remote location, an impossible-to-plan-for situation. It shows Emma needing to solve different situations and elude the killers hunting her down in the home. This feels like a mix of Gerard’s Game and Don’t Breathe.
Megan Fox is wonderful in the leading role, bringing a demanding performance that puts her above the rest of the cast.
Final Thoughts – Till Death is a non-stop thriller capitalising on the singular location.
