Reviews

90
TheWrap - James Rocchi
Nothing here feels cheap or hasty, which is why the horror, when it comes, is all the more chilling and grim. Slick, sharp and legitimately terrifying, The Gift is a truly brilliant thriller - and, one hopes, the first of many features from Edgerton to come.

Hitfix - Gregory Ellwood
Edgerton, who also wrote the screenplay, shows a masterful touch in playing with conventional expectations.
83
Tampa Bay Times - Steve Persall
The Gift is B-movie melodrama at its lurid finest, and worth a look.
80
The Hollywood Reporter - Jon Frosch
Taken on its own undemanding terms and considered within its not very original framework, Joel Edgerton's feature-length directorial debut is a pleasant - or pleasantly unpleasant - surprise, hitting its genre marks in brisk, unfussy fashion and raising a few hairs on the back of your neck along the way.

The Gift (2015)


Simon and Robyn are a young married couple whose life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon's high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. Simon doesn't recognize Gordo at first, but after a series of uninvited encounters and mysterious gifts prove troubling, a horrifying secret from the past is uncovered after more than 20 years. As Robyn learns the unsettling truth about what happened between Simon and Gordo, she starts to question: how well do we really know the people closest to us, and are past bygones ever really bygones?
