A grim becoming official trailer 1
A Grim Becoming is a 2014 American horror comedy film directed by Adam R. Steigert. The film had its world premiere on October 31, 2014 and stars Brandyn T. Williams as a young businessman that finds he has become a Grim Reaper. Including writing, production for A Grim Becoming took place over a two and a half year period, with filming taking place in New York during the summer of 2013.
Raphael (Brandyn T. Williams) is an executive on the cusp of either making it big or losing it all, depending on how a deal with a large distribution company goes. His co-worker Wayne (Britt Griffith) would love to see Raphael fail so he can himself progress within the business, a situation that is made worse when Raphael must take time off of work to go to the funeral of a family member in Metzburgh. On his way to Metzburgh, Raphael witnesses a Grim Reaper claiming a soul and ends up becoming a Grim Reaper himself. Raphael now has to find out what he's willing to do to get this status reversed and what Death (Michael Sciabarrasi) himself has planned for him.
A staff member for Horror-movies.ca gave an overly favorable review for A Grim Becoming, commenting that while there were issues with sound that they overall enjoyed the film and believed that it could become a cult classic. In contrast Nerdly panned the film, criticizing it for its "childish jokes" and "technical issues as well which destroy any redeeming qualities that this film might have had."
