Quite possibly one of the most entertaining films of the year, He Never Died, a horror-comedy directed by Jason Krawczyk, sneaks in under the radar, just squeezing in as a 2015 release. Krawczyk’s film tells the story of a ominous man who, under unlikely circumstances, must go on a quest to save his long-lost daughter…
