She Never Died (2019)

A mysterious woman is pulled from the mean streets to help a detective in a world of immortal beings and hardened criminals in She Never Died.

Detective Godfrey (Peter MacNeill) is hunting for a career criminal and all-around nasty guy Terrance (Noah Dalton Danby), who deals in human trafficking and deadly gambling stakes. His sister Meredith (Michelle Nolden) runs their crime empire, and they always seem to evade the police. When Godfrey crosses paths with Lacey (Oluniké Adeliyi), his world changes when he realizes she’s an immortal who eats bad guys. It’s her penance for a darker past, and he strikes a deal with her to combine forces so they can get Terrance off the streets for good. When Lacey rescues a young woman Suzzie (Kiana Madiera), and Terrance learns of Lacey’s power, things get dangerous for everyone involved.

She Never Died is the sister film to the 2015 He Never Died, starring punk icon Henry Rollins and directed by Jason Krawcyzk, who also wrote both films. This time, Audrey Cummings, who also directed Berkshire County and Darken, took the helm to tell the tale of a loner immortal with a strict moral code.  Shot in the GTA, She Never Died is a neo-noir tale with dark humour, great performances and fight sequences that inspired Adeliyi to do her own stunts.
