Movie Info

J.L. Vera's wild revenge film South of Heaven begins with retired Navy-man Roy coming home, only to be mistaken for his reprobate brother by men who the brother owe lots of money too. The bad guys burn Roy to death, but it turns out he isn't really dead, but comes back to life, wrapped in bandages from head-to-toe, and goes by the name Nobody. Now Nobody spends his days hunting down and killing the people responsible for turning him into what he is.

Critic Reviews for South of Heaven

All Critics (2)

I just didn't enjoy myself very much as the story played out. South Of Heaven embraces its low-budget nature by shooting entirely on sets that look like sets, almost like a filmed play.

It's the Coens meets Sam Fuller while watching Looney Tunes and making an '80s mix tape full of The Smiths and Depeche Mode. I (freak)ing loved it.

Audience Reviews for South of Heaven


A curious noir riff, grounded by Shea Whigham's remarkable performance as a psychopath (sociopath?) on the run.
