Seven Days to Live (2000) R...

I was looking through and saw that they were playing this movie. It made me remember how much I liked it. I went through a stage where I was watching a lot of English/Irish films. Dog Soldiers and Wilderness were a few others. As I have stated before, Dog Soldiers is my very favorite Werewolf movie. Seven Days To Live is like an English version of The Shining. Is it as good as The Shining, no... not really, but it is very entertaining. The theme is different, but the overall sense of the movie is the same. The funny thing is that the woman who plays the wife looks a lot like Shelley Duvall from The Shining. You should check out the trailer below and give this movie a shot... I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

In an old house on the edge of a secluded swampland somewhere in Northern Europe a young woman and her husband try to start a new life after the tragic death of their son. Before they have even settled in, the woman begins receiving eerie messages counting down the days until her death.

Sean Pertwee
Having watched Sean Pertwee in Dog Soldiers, I really became a fan of his work. I've seen four of his movies and all have been well done and highly entertaining. In Seven Days To Live, Pertwee plays the husband who decides to make a move to an old house out in the country after the tragic death of his son. After a few days the wife begins to get "messages" that she only has seven days to live. At first, she doesn't think anything of it, but after a few days, she begins to get scared. Pertwee plays a role very similar to Jack Nicholson in The Shining. He just thinks shes still suffering from the loss of their child, but then he begins to change and act more angry and hateful. This is a good movie and one I can recommend. Give it a try!
