Movie review: Masters of Horror: Rob Schmidt: Right to Die

Cliff walks away from an auto accident in which his wife, Abbey, is burned over her entire body and left on life-support.

Movie review: MOH Right to Die – 2007
Martin Donovan (Cliff Addison), Julia Anderson (Abbey Addison), Robin Sydney (Trish), Corbin Bernsen (Ira).

Only after he makes the emotional decision to terminate life-support does Cliff realize that Abbey’s spirit is out for revenge and he somehow needs to keep her alive. As he races to find a donor for the full skin transplant she needs, his lover Trish, and loathsome attorney, Ira, just seem to keep getting in the way.

A Master’s Of Horror entry from Rob Schmidt, this one falls pretty squarely in the horror category with little psychological or dramatic side-effects. The storyline was a mix of past and present which seemed a bit confusing and repetitive a couple of times but overall the story flowed well. A couple of nice twists toward the end brought back viewer attention when it was starting to wane and made for a nice ending.

Plenty of blood, guts, and a scary looking Abbey were very good. Special effects were nicely done and camera work was quality throughout.  Dialogue and sound were also well done.

Acting was pretty good by everyone. Bernsen did a good job once again of being the attorney everyone loves to hate, and I really do!

Compared to other MOH entries I would put this one about middle of the pack. A decent entry but, there have been several better and several worse.

With blood, guts and some language this one is probably okay for preens and above.
