A Horrible Way to Die is a 2010 horror movie that follows the story of a convicted serial killer who escapes from prison and embarks on a killing spree, and his ex-girlfriend, who is trying to restart her life after being in a destructive relationship with the killer. The movie starts with a series of gruesome murders committed by the killer, named Garrick Turrell (played by Bowen), who manages to escape from prison during his transport to a new facility. The police are alerted of the escape, and they start an intensive manhunt for the killer. Meanwhile, Garrick makes his way to his hometown, where he intends to fulfill his obsession with his ex-girlfriend, Sarah (played by Seimetz).

Sarah has moved to a new town under a new identity and has started a new relationship with Kevin (played by Swanberg). As the police search for Garrick intensifies, Sarah starts to worry that he might come after her. Her fears are realized when Garrick tracks her down and starts stalking her. Kevin, who is unaware of Sarah's past, tries to help her, but his efforts only put them in more danger.

The movie is tightly focused on the character development and relationships of the main characters. It reveals the psychology of both the killer and his ex-girlfriend, who is dealing with the aftermath of an abusive relationship. The movie explores the tension between Garrick's obsessive love for Sarah and the violence he commits as a result of that obsession. It also portrays Sarah's struggles to move on from her past and her efforts to create a new life for herself.

The movie features a non-linear narrative, which means that the events are not presented in chronological order. This narrative style helps to build tension and suspense, as the viewer is constantly trying to piece together what happened in the past and how it connects to the present.

A Horrible Way to Die is a slow-burning horror movie that emphasizes psychological horror over gore or jump scares. The acting performances by the main cast are excellent, especially AJ Bowen, who plays the chilling role of the serial killer. The movie's style and tone are reminiscent of independent films, which helps to create a sense of realism and authenticity.

Overall, A Horrible Way to Die is a well-crafted horror movie that provides a thought-provoking exploration of the psychology of a serial killer and his victim. It is not for the faint of heart, as it contains graphic violence and disturbing imagery, but it rewards those who are willing to delve into its complex narrative and character development.

A Horrible Way to Die is a 2011 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 27 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.2 and a MetaScore of 52.
