The Day I Died1978

  • 3.9
"I can't be dead! I'm only seventeen! I have a date tonight!" A creepy synthesizer score underlines the melodramatic horror of this cautionary mini-drama. It's a "great day for the beach" when our handsome, likable California surfer-blond hero runs into some pals. Unused to alcohol, he gets very high on buddy Joe's vodka (stashed in a 7-Up bottle), leaving him ill-equipped to drive the car he's just brought home. Things get ever more ghoulish as he witnesses the bleak and tearful events that follow his tragic demise. One assumes many a classroom was left either giggling or traumatized (or both) as he screams his final pleas to God as he's being buried. That's edutainment! - Dennis Harvey
