Reviews [may contain spoilers]:
“There’s no shortage of cleverness in the screenplay co-written by Michael and Gal Katzir, but the movie ultimately gets tripped up in its own trippiness. Despite its brief 98-minute running time, the film seems strangely drawn out, with the confusing dream sequences and flashbacks to Sam’s childhood sapping the narrative momentum.” Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

“An entrancing, diabolical romance thriller that exudes sympathy and remorse, Every Time I Die is nothing short of heart-stopping and astounding.” Michael Therkelsen, Horror Society

“The narrative is very complex, splicing back-and-forth between the present and the past, dreams and waking life with a purpose that will only seem logical in hindsight. It’s truly a film that requires two watches to appreciate, as the final twist is a real doozy.” Jeff Schmidt, Nightmarish Conjurings

Every Time I Die premiered at the Cinequest Film Festival on 8 March 2019 and will be released theatrically and on video on demand (VOD) on August 9, 2019.
