Wiki

After.Life is a psychological horror film starring Liam Neeson, Christina Ricci and Justin Long, directed by Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo from her original screenplay.

After a horrific car accident, Anna (Ricci) wakes up to find the local funeral director Eliot Deacon (Neeson) preparing her body for her funeral. Confused, terrified and feeling very much alive, Anna doesn't believe she's dead, despite the funeral director's reassurances that she is merely in transition to the afterlife. Eliot convinces her he has the ability to communicate with the dead and is the only one who can help her. Trapped inside the funeral home, with nobody to turn to except Eliot, Anna is forced to face her deepest fears and accept her own death. But Anna's grief-stricken boyfriend Paul (Long) still can't shake the nagging suspicion that Eliot isn't what he appears to be. As the funeral nears, Paul gets closer to unlocking the disturbing truth, but it could be too late; Anna may have already begun to cross over the other side.

"After.Life" is what could have and should have been an interesting film. The premise and set-up is nice, it has an appealing cast, and the atmosphere has the potential to be pretty creepy. So what went wrong with this supernatural thriller? Why didn't I enjoy it? The answer: it was lifeless. This first-time feature from Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo is a rather disappointing first effort, and the naivety certainly shows. How Vosloo could get the talents of Liam Neeson and Christina Ricci …

Is Death Really the Answer For An Empty Life?
   Life after death according to co-writer/director Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo is the best way to describe this horror-psychological thriller “After.LIFE”. The film is on a limited run in San Francisco theaters so I figured I’d check it out since it had Christina Ricci (Black Snake Moan) and Liam Neeson (Taken) as its main protagonists. There are two thing that are required to be able to enjoy and understand this film; One, that human’s experience a sort of a shock/denial …

I couldn't stop laughing. When Christina Ricci said she didn't want to be a pale corpse ... I mean come on. I think it was meant to be an inside joke but since the story was so stupid it was pretty much all I had to hold on to.

AFTER.LIFE (yes, that is a dot between the two words suggesting this may be a video game...or blog, or something created in cyberspace) takes a long shot; can a one-line story keep an audience's attention for over 103 minutes? Not having noticed whether this played in theaters or is one of the direct to DVD films, that question is tough to answer. The director and writer Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo (writing in tandem with Paul Vosloo and Jakub Korolczuk) asks us to suspend belief and muse about the …
