Tell Me How I Die | A half-baked horror thriller that's all too easy to predict

Tell Me How I Die

Tell Me How I Die Nathan Kress

Knowing your fate is a real killer

Half-baked horror thriller Tell Me How I Die dispatches a stereotypical bunch of college-age hotties and hunks to a remote scientific facility for the trial of a revolutionary new memory drug. But there’s a blizzard raging outside and a shadowy killer inside. And the drug’s alarming side effects give one of the guinea pigs terrifying visions of their own future murders.

‘This place is nothing but hallways,’ says one of the potential victims, and you don’t to have taken the drug to predict that he and his peers will spend most of the time boringly running up and down them as they try to evade their fate. YouTube star Ryan Higa plays the film's comic relief, but fans of his NigaHiga channel will find him far funnier there.

Jason Best

A film critic for over 25 years, Jason admits the job can occasionally be glamorous – sitting on a film festival jury in Portugal; hanging out with Baz Luhrmann at the Chateau Marmont; chatting with Sigourney Weaver about The Archers – but he mostly spends his time in darkened rooms watching films. He’s also written theatre and opera reviews, two guide books on Rome, and competed in a race for Yachting World, whose great wheeze it was to send a seasick film critic to write about his time on the ocean waves. But Jason is happiest on dry land with a classic screwball comedy or Hitchcock thriller.
