Jamie Marks Is Dead

"Who did it?" Today's indie trailer is for the murder mystery thriller Jamie Marks Is Dead, from writer / director Carter Smith, which first premiered at Sundance 2014 earlier this year. The film stars Cameron Monaghan as a high school student who meets the ghost of a murdered teenager and attempts to help him put together the crime. There are some odd appearances by Liv Tyler and Judy Greer in funky supporting roles, along with Noah Silver as Jamie Marks. While this starts out like a new take on a murder concept like Rian Johnson's Brick, it spins into the ghost territory and seems to turn into too much of a paranormal horror for my own tastes. I'm curious about it, but not sure if it'll be any good. Give this a look for yourself.

Watch the official US theatrical trailer for Carter Smith's Jamie Marks Is Dead, in high def from Apple:

Fifteen-year-old Adam McCormick's life hasn't been the same since a classmate found Jamie Marks' 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. Adapted from Christopher Barzak's novel and directed by Carter Smith (of The Ruins), Jamie Marks Is Dead arrives in select theaters August 29th this summer. Updates on their Facebook page.
