YMMV / After.Life

Go To

After.Life Video Game:

  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: One of the punishments for Wrathful sinners? Terrorville, a world that experiences terrorist attacks nonstop. The picture of this particular punishment is a tall building on fire.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • "Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim Sim" is a reward structure where the blessed soul can control an entire galaxy from the smallest microbe to the largest space races. The building is a hand holding a orb containing a spiral galaxy. Does this remind you of anything?
    • Advertisement:
    • "The Bowels of Hell" involves gluttonous damned SOULs being forced into what is basically a Human Centipede.
  • Retroactive Recognition: The doctor's voice in the introductory movie. If you listen very carefully, he sounds like a rather popular space cowboy.
  • Ugly Cute: The EMBOs, which are spindly aliens with leathered skin, long faces and cartoonishly big eyes. Looking at Aria and Jasper, it seems that angels and demons both keep some of these features, though Aria has human skin and hair and is more conventionally beautiful.


After.Life Film:

  • Accidental Aesop: Don't text/answer your phone while driving.
  • Complete Monster: El(l)iot Deacon is a funeral director who appears friendly and sympathetic on the outside, but is actually a psychopath with a tendency to bury people alive. He manipulates them by posing as a psychopomp who can communicate with the dead as he prepares them for burial using techniques that won't kill them, so that they stay alive until buried. He keeps a photo collection in his bedroom of everyone he's buried, and it's strongly hinted that he's buried as many living people as corpses. The film centers on his preparation of Anna Taylor, during which we see just how twisted Deacon is. Later on, he deals with two people who have found him out in very different ways: recruiting one in whom he sees a kindred spirit as a Secret Keeper, and goading another, Anna's boyfriend Paul Coleman, into a car accident while he's drinking heavily and then taunting him about his failure before finishing him off directly on the slab.

How well does it match the trope?
