Had it's moments...
If only this was made in the 70s! In some of the scenes I felt I was traced back to French films of the 70s, which to me is a good thing. In others, "Death knows your Name" (misleading title) looked more like the usual splatter-feast nowadays produced in the US for the direct-to-DVD market. So this Argentian production seems to have two very different "parents". Speaking of strange mixtures, there's no doubt the story also had it's compelling parts, while other aspects were quite foreseeable. I like it when horror movies take place in the daylight, but I dislike an overload of (unexpained) symbolism (seen here, for instance, in the relevance of mirrors). The lead acting wasn't so convincing either. But overall, "Death" did have it's moments. I guess there are people out there that would really enjoy it. (I think I would like it better if the title was "Death doesn't know your name", just for the subtle fun of it.)
