Long Live Death

Schedule

Thursday, Nov. 10 at 5:00pm
Friday, Nov. 11 at 9:00pm

In “Long Live Death,” a serial killer sedates his female victims and makes their murders look like suicides. When the body of another woman is found, Lt. Murot finally catches the culprit, appearing to end the deadly spree. But even after his arrest, the killer still exerts terrifying control over the situation, and Murot seems to play an unwitting part in his master plan. As detective and criminal play a cat-and-mouse game with the highest of stakes — a person’s life — Murot is forced to confront his own past and inner demons. A tense thriller, “Long Live Death” is a quasi-sequel to the same director’s “At the End of the Street” (2015 SLIFF), with both films inspired by the long-running German television series “Tatort (Scene of the Crime).”
