Megan Fox’s new role in horror / thriller
I admit stating that when I hear Megan Fox’s name the first thing that comes to my mind is an amazingly beautiful actress with a list of famous films to date. However, just a few days ago, I realized that I had never seen a Megan Fox movie, however crazy it might sound. That’s right, I’ve never watched ‘Transformers’ once and I haven’t seen his famous performance in’ Jennifer’s Body ‘either, but everything changed when I watched his new thriller’ Till Death. ‘which was recently premiered on July 2, 2021.

Fox plays Emma, ââa failed photographer and wife of an incredibly wealthy (and menacing) lawyer, Mark (Eoin Macken), where the two got stuck in their hapless and unfaithful marriage for ten years. What I feared to be a monotonous script, quickly proved me wrong by showing that this film was going to be different. Mark takes Emma to their secluded lakeside home for their tenth wedding anniversary, secluded and snow-capped from the rest of the world. Without revealing any spoilers, I was deeply immersed just 25 minutes away when the first round took place, leaving the character of Fox handcuffed to her late husband.
Left without the handcuff key, Fox is forced to slide the bloody body around the huge icy house as she searches for her cell phone, car keys, weapons, or just about any tool she can use to escape her terrifying situation. As if things couldn’t get worse, two dangerous men seeking revenge and the money shows up and we’ll find out later that they’re hired killers who won’t leave until she’s dead. Fox’s acting chops prove she’s a force to be reckoned with as she fights for her life in this eighty-minute film directed by SK Dale in his directorial debut for a feature film and written by Jason Carvey (‘A New Wave’).

‘Till Death’ – Fox took on new challenges
I have a habit of always trying to figure out exactly how certain elements of a movie are made or, taken out, might even be the best term for it. In this movie, curiosity got the better of me and all I could think of as Fox’s character struggled to survive while dragging the weight of her late husband with her was: how exactly did they manage to film that? After some research I found out that Fox hadn’t cheated through this and that she was actually carrying the weight of a real man every day of filming. It was not a doll or a mannequin of life, in fact it was a real stuntman that she was lugging around who also happened to be naked.
Fox spoke to Yahoo! on this subject in an interview stating: “I made a lot of physical films, a lot of stuntman movies, a lot of movies with explosives and things like that, but I never just carried the weight of a real human body, like a grown man that I wore all day, every day, which I did about it. At first I was like, “It’s easy, it’s a great hamstring workout, I’m going to get through it, it’s not going to be a problem.” But in the end, I was exhausted. I didn’t realize how tired I was at the end of it. I was destroyed after that. With a bloodied, scraped, and bruised wrist, which she showed in a graphic scene from the film, it was evident that her struggles were in fact real and not in any way staged. It was fascinating to see the character of Fox trying to save herself while literally carrying an extra burden with her.

A rocky start to a solid finish
In the first ten minutes of the movie, I will honestly admit that I wasn’t sure if I was going to last. Of a true horror / thriller geek, it was sprinkling with breadcrumbs that led me to believe it would be like tons of other thrillers I’ve seen in the past. With a lackluster start and soap opera-like acting, I feared it was a tale as old as the time a couple are unhappy in their stale marriage, so the husband takes his angry wife to a secluded house. for a weekend getaway to add some spice to their life and from there all hell breaks loose. Viewers cannot claim that this scenario has been done several times before. Some examples that come to mind are “Foreigners”, ‘Tenuous’, and ‘Gerald’s Game’. I will say, however, that I was very surprised that it didn’t turn into the movie I thought it would be.
There was a very clever turn that took place in the first quarter of the movie that held my attention throughout, forcing me to finish just to see if and how Fox’s character could pull it off. escape from his mortal situation. When it is first revealed that Emma is handcuffed to her late husband, I was delighted to see him dead due to his controlling and even abusive nature towards his wife, but also intrigued because I knew there was had much more in the story at the beginning of the circumstances. unfold. While at times this movie was unrealistic, it was certainly entertaining and refreshing with a direct run time of just 1 hour and 28 minutes. I can also now assure you that I am a fan of Fox and I have high hopes that she will continue to add horror and empowerment of women films to his repertoire.
