That Cold Dead Look In Your Eyes - Movie Review

That Cold Dead Look In Your Eyes

The sky is falling!

No, you are NOT losing your mind, but Leonard (Franck Raharinosy) is!  Could it possibly be the Theta Box technology that is popping up all over New York?!  Leonard better find out quickly or else what else will he risk losing?!

"as haunting as it is amusing"


 

That Cold Dead Look In Your Eyes is a multi-genre hybrid film that doesn’t answer the questions it puts forth and for good reason.  Know that going into this mad, mad, conspiracy-minded comedy and you just might survive one of the trippiest French films to be released this year.

Open-ended on purpose, this arthouse thriller is a lot of things, but NEVER is it dull as Leonard, possibly the worst chef in New York City, finds himself stabbed for cheating and still living in his ex-girlfriend’s apartment, which is being invaded by her father, Dennis (Alan Ceppos), and all his nude male models.

Directed by Onur Tukel (Catfight, Summer of Blood), and starring Nora Arnezeder, Franck Raharinosy, Alan Ceppos, and Max Casella, That Cold Dead Look In Your Eyes begins with Leonard’s world falling completely apart.  And for good reason.  He’s a bit of punk who gets what he deserves and yet there is something that dogs him.  Is he really to blame for all this fallout?That Cold Dead Look In Your Eyes

What is REAL anymore?  He is about to lose his girlfriend, home and job.  Even his mind is at stake as he finds himself caught in a science fiction-like loop that folds in on itself thanks to familiar Fellini situations by way of some pretty chilling conspiracies. That Cold Dead Look In Your Eyes is as haunting as it is amusing, but how strong is your mind to the nonsense that seems to be raining all around Leonard.

Adding to that, he’s also having strange hallucinations. Is it stress or a side effect of new technology installed all over the city to increase the speed of the internet? Either way, something is going on and it is randomly turning citizens into assassins.  Is he really going insane?  He must figure it out or he’ll be trapped in this nightmare forever.

That Cold Dead Look in Your Eyes had its world premiere at the Tallahassee Film Festival and will be released On-Demand by Dark Star Pictures on November 9, 2021.

The theta waves are real, man!  Are you ready to ride them to their ever-loving end?

4/5 stars
