I Didn't Come Here to Die 2010 - REVIEW
Emmy Robbin, Indiana Adams, Kurt Cole, Madi Goff, Travis Scott Newman and Niko Red Star) on a humanitarian project in the woods, the warm fuzzies are the least of their worries. After one horrific accident after another, making it out of there alive becomes their only priority.
At first glance, one might think I Didn't Come Here to Die was your typical slasher flick where there is a group of people out in the woods being stalked by a serial killer but it's so NOT that. It's more of a glimpse into the psyche of the human brain and what happens to people when they're thrust into the most extreme situations.
Bradley Scott Sullivan knew exactly what he was looking for when he cast IDCHTD. Yes, it is the stereotypical horror movie cast but I have a feeling that was intentional on the part of Sullivan. BUT, that doesn't matter... what matters is, did they pull it off? The answer is a resounding YES! I would imagine it's hard to put your faith in the relatively "unknown" actor but in this case it paid off. The commitment level from this group is definitely admirable. Especially for a feature film shot in only 7 days. Each one of them took their role and elevated it above most of what you see from today's indie horror films. Of course no film is perfect but I really couldn't point out any particular performance that stood out as bad or lackluster. I enjoyed watching all of them equally.
