Is this a supernatural thriller or a superficial fiasco?

By Andrew Andrews

Our Dear Dead Drug Lord is the story of The Dead Leaders Club, a group of four girls in Miami attending a private high school. The club, originally formed in the 1960’s to study the life of JFK, was suspended in 2008 after announcing a decision to focus on more controversial leaders: specifically, Pablo Escobar.

The hodge-podge of girls meet on the first Tuesday of every month in the club leader’s tree house—not to study Escobar, but to attempt to make contact with him from beyond the grave. Hoping that Escobar’s spirit will help resolve deep personal problems that each member faces, their pain points leave them arguing with each other one minute and supporting each other the next.
