review by
Mike Haberfelner

Ten years ago, horror director Alfred Costella (Vinny Curran) destroyed his reputation and career when he totally lost his shit on Willy Wilson's (Bill Oberst jr) show. But over the years, he has gained a sort of cult following, so much so that he has decided to make one last money, mostly financed by his own money. And for this movie he has hired a skeleton documentary crew, camguy and interviewer Calvin (Ian Tripp) and his soundguy Mark (Joshua Wyble) to do the making-of, having chosen them specifically as they tend to go where it hurts. At first the shoot seems like nothing special, Costella acts like an egotistical asshole who doesn't shy away from humiliating his actors - in one scene spraying his leading lady Allison (Iliyana Apostolova) with actual pig's blood -, his moderately talented leading man Theo (Seton Edgerton) proves to be the perfect diva, Costella's PA Grant (Brendan Cahalan) proves to be over-protective and under-critical when it comes to his boss, and leading lady Allison's nerves are often tested to the limits and beyond - so a pretty normal film shoot. It's only when after his death scene leading man Theo just disappears that it dawns upon our documentarists that the film-within-the-film's title "Everybody Dies by the End" might be somewhat more prophetic than they could have wished for ...


Frankly, based on its title and its set-up, it's not too hard to figure out where this movie is heading - and one certainly won't be disappointed. And yet, Everybody Dies by the End is a wildly entertaining movie, basically because by giving away its game it's freed from working solely towards a reveal and instead concentrates on telling an engaging story, a story that's a blend of showbusiness satire, character study, and of course horror, all rolled into a mockumentary context - and thanks to a clever script, a genre savvy-direction and a mix of relatable characters and hilarious caricatures played by a competent cast, this has turned out to be a pretty enjoyable genre ride.
