Vincent Must Die Synopsis

Vincent Must Die is a dark comedy by director Stéphan Castang. Featuring a twist on the typical zombie narrative, the titular Vincent finds himself being attacked by random people, which he discovers is triggered by making direct eye contact. Things get complicated for Vincent when he begins falling for the waitress Margaux and he wants to pursue a relationship with her, without her trying to kill him.

My Thoughts on Vincent Must Die

Vincent Must Die features much hilarity in the first half of the film as Vincent has to fend off attacks from co-workers, children in his apartment building, and probably most disgustingly, a neighbour in the middle of a overflowing septic tank. The second half of the film becomes both an awkward romance, as well as a fight for survival, as the situation starts to become more apocalyptic. While not a perfect film, Vincent Must Die definitely gets points for originality.
