AS GOOD AS DEAD is a psychological thriller full of shocking twists starring Andie MacDowell and Cary Elwes. What begins as an average day for Ethan (Elwes) takes a dangerous turn when he’s abducted and held hostage in his New York apartment by three assailants.

The home invaders aren’t looking to rob him; instead they are looking to avenge the death of Reverend Kalahan, the right-wing cult leader whose brutal murder remains unsolved. On a mission of revenge, the assailants vow to make Ethan pay. There's one big problem, the more the kidnappers interrogate him, the more they doubt he is the killer.
