Daily Trailer Insights – Tell Me How I Die Official Trailer 1 (2016)

Fandango Movieclip Channel describe it as

When a group of college students take part in an experimental drug study, an unexpected side effect gives them terrifying visions of their own murders… which begin to come true. As they scramble to outsmart and outmaneuver their date with death, they realize that the killer is among them and shares their ability to see the future – only he seems to be one step ahead in their race to survive.

What the trailer tells us

Let’s be honest. This is a different take on Final Destination but instead, they have replaced ‘Death’ with a drug that allows them to see their death instead. The trailer gives the impression that it is more of a thriller than a horror but it seems a bit choppy to me.

The problem with the trailer is that you already know how it will end. It is nothing new and we have seen this concept before. We are bored of Final Destination so stop trying to make a rehashed version. I guess what I thought when watching this trailer was – does this film need to be made? Honestly, no but I guess it will serve as round trip teenage flick to the cinema and posters claiming it will be “absolutely terrifying”.

When Final Destination was released it served a fairly new concept that worked, that was exciting and then they kept making more and it got boring. I would never have thought that someone, in the realms of Hollywood would think to make another version of the story again but this time using “experimental” drugs in order for the teenagers to foresee their death. I may be wrong. It might not be predictable but for now, I am going to keep by cynicism intact.

No doubt there will be another trailer which tells us nothing more than we already know.
