It sets up this distaff-Deliverance scenario much better than it pays it off.

Black Rock isn't going to become the sort of classic that Deliverance was, but if you like your scares smart, and like them to happen to people you actually care about, then Aselton's island of friendship and fury is a nice place to visit.

Aselton's unassuming guilty pleasure gently diverges from a familiar scenario with impressively tense results.

Black Rock upends most American action films' nativist impulses, but it never settles into satirizing or transcending them.

A soundtrack of churning rock songs by the Kills is as close as this misfire gets to authentic grrrl power, borrowed as it is.

Considering the credits, we expected something better.

Layered conflicts mount as this lean film treks on, and they're not limited to gender politics.

Eye for Film

despite the occasional mismatch between the human drama and more genre-bound concerns, for the most part Black Rock is a tense, atmospheric and engaging affair, with an existential edge.

Works perfectly fine as a traditional fight-for-survival chiller, but the underlying gender issues give this would-be midnight-movie offering an extra jolt.

Working from a ruthlessly efficient script by husband Mark Duplass, Aselton effortlessly sets up the women's reunion scenario before effectively flipping the action from drama to thriller.

Straining to be a distaff "Deliverance," indie thriller Black Rock is unable to shock, much less convince.

The shotgun wedding of mumblecore and bare-bones genre filmmaking is promising in theory, but lackluster and surprisingly generic in practice.

Black Rock is well-acted, and contains a couple of memorable scenes, but for the most part this is a blah buddy dramedy that transforms into a blah chase thriller.

Black Rock makes subtle changes that distinguish it as a marginally more thoughtful stalking killer movie, but horror fans will find its twists and turns too familiar to leave a lasting impression.
