Death Knows Your Name (2007)
If only this was made in the 70s! In some of the scenes I felt I was traced back to French films of the 70s, which to me is a good thing. In others, "Death knows your Name" (misleading title) looked more like the usual splatter-feast nowadays produced in the US for the direct-to-DVD market. So this Argentian production seems to have two very different "parents". Speaking of strange mixtures, there's no doubt the story also had it's compelling parts, while other aspects were quite foreseeable. I like it when horror movies take place in the daylight, but I dislike an overload of (unexpained) symbolism (seen here, for instance, in the relevance of mirrors). The lead acting wasn't so convincing either. But overall, "Death" did have it's moments. I guess there are people out there that would really enjoy it. (I think I would like it better if the title was "Death doesn't know your name", just for the subtle fun of it.)
Dr. Bruce Taylor shares dreams with his mental patient Richard Patterson who also talks to the ground. Patterson makes predictions and leads Bruce to a buried skull in an abandoned wing of the hospital, one with a history.

What is unfortunate is that the single line description of the film at Amazon and at IMDB is specific information about the skull and a plot spoiler. However, that is not half bad because the film is tedious to watch. I liked the beginning, but it starts to way heavy at midpoint. The acting leaves much to be desired and the dialogue is a snooze.

Guide: No swearing or sex. Naked corpse torso. Blood. Argentine film in English.
DEATH KNOWS YOUR NAME is a very low budget psychological thriller that hails from Argentina. The main character is a handsome doctor who finds himself plagued by nightmares after tangling with one of his patients at a forbidding asylum. He soon uncovers a dark mystery involving the building and must figure out whether he's going crazy or if the supernatural is involved. There are some okay visuals here alongside a slim story and a little mood, but there's not much to it overall.
