This isn't quite the distaff Deliverance promised, but it's a credible indie thriller with characters worth caring about.

Shadows on the Wall

We've seen Duplass write scripts that break cinema conventions like this, but who knew that his actress wife Aselton would turn out to be an equally innovative director?

[An] earthy, woodsy throwback thriller ...

Katie Aselton's survival thriller sets its themes of time's passage, unresolved history and reluctant coming of age within a gripping island-set genre frame. It's like Lord Of The Flies for arrested adults.

First-time filmmaker Aselton creates one of the most assured thrillers in recent memory, throwing finely developed characters into a very nasty situation that makes us squirm in our seats.

Slender, but committed: even Kate Bosworth, as the girls' team leader, forswears her usual lipgloss.

It's Aselton and Bell who really impress, their characters providing the glue of credibility that prevents the increasingly overwrought situation from coming apart.

'Black Rock' is never dull, but it's hardly the attention-grabbing calling card its creator presumably intended.

A tight-fisted little piece of gender-centric survival horror.

We Got This Covered

While not exactly the most dangerous game, Black Rock is a decent, punctuated gender battle which flys by quick enough to keep viewers at attention for a predictable yet watchable thriller.

... a feminist reworking of 'Most Dangerous Game' and 'Deliverance,' with the friends soon stripped down and armed, like a tribe of Amazonian huntresses ... has the visceral appeal of early Kathryn Bigelow.

This is a lean and mean variation on a familiar theme, tense throughout, with some terrific performances.

Efficient thriller that's practically a feature-length evocation of Thomas Hobbes' notion of life in nature: "nasty, brutish and short."

This indie, female-centric riff on "Deliverance" is spare, smartly written and shot through with moments of twig-snapping tension.

It works because Aselton and Bell turn in wildly physical, primal performances. You do not want to mess with these women. "Black Rock" is ferocious stuff.

It's a very short experience but one that hits its beats with a sense of urgency and a feeling of helplessness.

The male characters here are too thinly developed for this to be a top-notch survival thriller, but Ms. Aselton knows how to get the pulse pounding.

Nifty little genre gem with its share of surprises has three damsel campers in distress on an isolated island they didn't know they'd be sharing with three hunters back from overseas battle and with too much fight left in them.

irector Katie Aselton's film is actually pretty interesting, starting with the way Aselton handles the violence, and what she does and doesn't choose to emphasize.
