Eliot convinces her he has the ability to communicate with the dead and is the only one who can help her. Trapped inside the funeral home, with nobody to turn to except Eliot, Anna is forced to face her deepest fears and accept her own death. But Anna’s grief-stricken boyfriend Paul (Long) still can’t shake the nagging suspicion that Eliot isn’t what he appears to be. As the funeral nears, Paul gets closer to unlocking the disturbing truth, but it could be too late; Anna may have already begun to cross over the other side.
Plot: Following a terrible car crash, a woman awakes to find an enigmatic mortician preparing her for burial.

Thought provoking sick fantasy thriller mystery.
A funeral director appears to have the gift of speaking to dead, and help with their passing to the either side. However, his latest work is a young female school teacher, but is she really dead or is he fulfilling a sick fantasy.
Director Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Voslo’s After-life is intriguing, thought provoking and original throughout. The stark style of filming is reminiscent of Body to Body (2003) aka “Corps à corps”.
While most of film centres around the character of Anna Taylor it is a wise casting choice by Matthew Lessall as beautiful Christina Ricci gives an emotional performance as a girl who’s is not sure if she is dead or alive. Although, Ricci is on the mortuary slab and semi-nude for most part of the film, comparably to Anna Falchi in Dellamorte Dellamore (1994), to Wojtowicz-Voslo’s credit it’s never in an explicit or over sexualized presentation.
Liam Neeson is convincing as the mortician Eliot Deacon in a subtle performance where he communicates with the dead. He’s creepy and cold, although not given a back story, his character has many layers. The tension between Neeson and Ricci is note-worthy and create some great moments.
Die Hard 4 star Justin Long is average as Ricci’s fiancée, as he doesn’t have the convincing weight of the other players. However, Young Chandler Canterbury as the little boy Jack is memorable. The supporting cast are a mix of familiar face’s including Josh Charles and Shuler Hensley and the other officers.
Direction, lighting and music create an eerie atmosphere for this effective thriller mystery. There’s horror too in the way of Anna Taylor’s visions and Deacon working on the deceased prepping their bodies.
Overall, simmering entertainment with a closing act to ponder over.

After Life explores the beliefs about the soul and what happens to it after we die.
The film is about Anna Taylor (Christina Ricci), a school teacher who supposedly dies in a traffic accident. She wakes up and finds herself in a mortuary with the undertaker, Elliott Deacon (Liam Neeson), talking to her, explaining that she is dead.
However, as time goes on, it becomes evident that not everything is what it seems. Deacon always locks the doors as if afraid that she may escape and every attempt she has made to communicate with her boyfriend, Paul Coleman (Justin Long) is disrupted by Deacon.
Is Anna really dead? Or does the undertaker have a more sinister plan for keeping her?
The film keeps you in suspense and guessing until the very end.
