From The Ruins director Carter Smith, Bloody Disgusting has your first look at a clip and official Sundance Film Festival poster for Jamie Marks Is Dead.
In the film starring Cameron Monaghan, Noah Silver, Morgan Saylor, Judy Greer, Madisen Beaty and Liv Tyler, no one seemed to care about Jamie Marks until after his death. Hoping to find the love and friendship he never had in life, Jamie’s ghost visits former classmate Adam McCormick, drawing him into the bleak world between the living and the dead.
Bloody’s Ryan Daley caught the film’s premiere only to leave annoyed by its angst. “Adopting the deliberate, melancholy pace that is a cornerstone of the proud Sundance tradition, Jamie Marks Is Dead wants desperately to be River’s Edge. So bad. In fact, it would probably settle for dinner and drinks with River’s Edge, followed by weepy sex and an in-bed discussion of moody cinematography and teen angst.”
Bummer. Still, I’m curious to see the film once it’s acquired out of the fest. Check out the poster and clip below.
