Critic Reviews for Bad Turn Worse
Bad Turn Worse is a taut noir tale, bolstered by a trio of excellent lead performances and a well-plotted script.

"Bad Turn Worse" simply peters out by the night of the big heist, never achieving more than being imitative of small-town noir instead of getting inside it.
A juicy neo-noir like "Bad Turn Worse" doesn't have to make total sense to grab you. All it has to do is spit like a snake enough times to show that it means business.
This cowboy noir works fine as a genre riff, but screenwriter Dutch Southern draws so liberally on the work of Jim Thompson, Cormac McCarthy, and the Coen brothers that he ought to take them all out for drinks.
