About the Movie
Fifteen year old Adam McCormick's life hasn't been the same since classmate Gracie Highsmith found Jamie Marks’s dead body at the edge of the river. The town is shocked, but as speculation swirls, it becomes clear that they knew as little about Jamie as they do about the circumstances surrounding his death. Adam becomes fixated on Jamie's death and gradually a deep bond develops between the living teenager and the dead boy's ghost. Their unlikely friendship provides Adam with the support and friendship he needs as the rest of the world falls apart. But the more attached Adam becomes to Jamie's ghost, the weaker his ties to reality become. As he struggles with the real world relationships, Adam is forced to rediscover what it means to be alive.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Temperate in tone but screaming with subtext, "Jamie Marks Is Dead" climbs above the current glut of supernaturally inclined entertainment by dint of a hushed unease that permeates almost every frame.
Fresh: The potentially ludicrous story is handled artfully enough here to cast an eerie but not off-putting spell throughout, though the ultimate point is more than a tad murky, and the desired poignancy doesn't fully come across.
Rotten: "Jamie Marks Is Dead" admirably refuses to hew to conventional horror tropes and is acted with integrity by its young performers, but the film nonetheless has a nagging pulse problem.
Rotten: Writer-director Carter Smith got his start as a successful fashion photographer. But you wouldn't know it from the murky look of this generic thriller.
Loved this movie
The story itself is a beautiful balance between melancholy and sweetness.
Carter Smith did an amazing job along with cinematographer Darren Lew and a very talented cast.
It definitely lived up to it's genre of "thriller".
I would recommend this movie to all of my friends.
WASTE OF 7 BUCKS
I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!! People this is not a thriller,or horror,it's like grinding nals down a chalk board. ITUNES LISTEN CAREFULLY, THIS AND MANY OTHER MOVIES ARE NOT STILL IN THEATERS! YOU CAN"T BE HURTING FOR MONEY THAT BAD.I will go elsewhere from now on. Who has that kind of money, unless your retired. MAKE MOVIES4RENT AR NORMAL PRICE AFTER IT HITS THE MOVIES!WHAT A CONCEPT! I purchase many films and music,and i know gary marshall,the director of many and this is just charging 33% on a chace card. Ok i"m done venting.Whatever do not let kids of this age in the movie watch this,kind of ironic don't you think?
Awesome performance between Cameron Monaghan and Noah Silver! Definitely a beautiful story worth watching.
