Dead And Gone Movie Review

Jack Wade (Quentin Jones) brings his comatose wife to a small house in the middle of nowhere, waiting for her to die so he can collect insurance money. Jack is soon haunted by visions of his wife and the ghosts of dead people. This low budget film really doesn’t have much going for it--the directing is bad, the acting worse, and the dialogue is awful. Most of the gore scenes are so fake looking they’re laughable. For the most part the movie crawls at a snails pace with nothing happening. The plot makes little to no sense at all. The only interesting thing about this movie is some of the somewhat familiar faces that turn up. Kyle Gass (music act Tenacious D), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), and Marilyn Ghigliotti (Clerks) all have small roles. And Zack Ward (A Christmas Story, Titus) has top billing on the cover of the movie but is only in it for maybe forty-five seconds.

Dead And Gone made me say uncle

None of these people are exactly “great” actors, but they are head and shoulders above the rest of the cast here. They are not well known, but considering their total screen time adds up to about five minutes, they probably had a sense they were better than this movie. I agree.
