According to the official synopsis :
He Never Died follows Jack in his battle with cannibalism and mental sobriety. An exceptionally prolonged life has brought depression and detachment. Jack buys stolen blood from a hospital intern, plays bingo,sleeps fourteen hours a day, watches television six hours a day, and lives alone. This is his life – he has shelled himself away from social interactions. The fuse is lit when Jack’s past comes back to rattle him. Jack must now walk a tight rope of sobriety and try to eat as few people as possible in this violent tale of personal responsibility and self worth. As it turns out, there are very few reasons to live when you can’t die.
The first film from writer/director Jason Krawczy, He Never Died is at the top of my must see list for this year. A new take on some classic themes, starring a cult icon! This is the kind of film we need to see more of.
I must admit, the mystery surrounding the storyline has me intrigued as well.
Is he a vampire? A cannibal? Maybe a bit of both…
My son speculated that maybe he is Jack the Ripper, still haunting the streets after all these years.
Other promotional photos from the official He Never Died Facebook page show what appear to be scars where wings were removed.
