He has a budding romance with Gracie, but he also feels a deep connection to Jamie, who brings him closer to the world of the undead.

Bleak effective mood setting and beautiful cinematography – but story needs oomph
Jamie Marks is Dead is an originally told downcast drama about two teens brought together after a classmate is found murdered in a rural town.
Carter Smith writes and directs Jamie Marks is Dead, drawing inspiration and adapting Christopher Barzak’s debut novel One for Sorrow.
Jamie Marks is found murdered, naked and discarded amidst the detritus of decaying tree branches along the side of a creek. Classmate Adam becomes sympathetically absorbed in the death of the teenage boy who was not popular and often picked on. He and Gracie, the girl who discovered the body, become close from the murder when Jamie’s ghost begins to appear to each of them.
Cameron Monaghan is Adam, the classmate inexplicably drawn to Jamie’s death. Monaghan is a budding talent and brings a realistic and unexaggerated angst to the role. Jamie Marks is Dead is about the melancholic connection of the characters and unfortunately Morgan Saylor’s Gracie and Noah Silver’s Jamie fail to deliver.
Jamie Marks is Dead is original, moody and extremely dark. We examine the character’s familial and interpersonal relationships through Jamie’s death rather than being a suspenseful mystery to unveil the killer’s identity. All the pieces for the plot are there but for some reason it never comes together believably. Adam’s preoccupation with Jamie’s death seems unfounded, and the character’s evolution that yields the resolution seems premature.
The story itself is laid out extremely slowly. Director Carter Smith uses this time to create a gloomy outlook of the characters’ world through clear and decisive cinematography. The film is beautiful to look at, capturing the dark and austere bleakness of rural life and balancing it with perfect lighting for watchable scenes.
