Reviews


100
The Guardian - Benjamin Lee
There’s something both reassuring and terrifying about it all, the family’s resilient warmth and togetherness providing comfort as the existential horror of what it all amounts to chills us simultaneously.

The Hollywood Reporter - Frank Scheck
The film is a remarkably insightful and powerful portrait of the human condition.
88
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Johanna Schneller
The writer’s adage that the specific is universal comes fully alive in this family drama, written and directed by Stephen Karam, based on his Tony-winning play.
88
Vanity Fair - Richard Lawson
Karam makes an auspicious directorial debut, one that captures all the tense, rattling mood of his stage horror while giving it a new, decidedly cinematic shape.
83
IndieWire - David Ehrlich
The result is a stilted and unnerving film that chips away at the petrified staginess of its origins with every sudden noise, as if Karam were sledge-hammering little cracks into the hull of his film’s WASPy modern family.
