... A technically proficient and psychologically aware piece of class baiting ...

Shadows on the Wall

Slickly made but ultimately pointless, this film is rescued by skillful direction and excellent actors who invest a fearless authenticity into their roles. It's just a shame that there's nothing very meaningful beneath the surface.

Neil Smith
Total Film

A gruelling suspenser told in real time, flecked with a darkly comic sensibility and a smattering of class-war critique.

Empire Magazine

Taut, tightly-plotted and at times confronting, it'll have you gripping the arm of your seat and double-locking the door.

Matthew Turner
ViewLondon

Impressively directed, superbly acted thriller that's both suspenseful and horrifying, though the decision to keep all the violence offscreen won't work for everyone.

Anthony Quinn
Independent

Its suggestion of a conscienceless underclass will be as a red rag to more conservative souls, but you suspect Williams won't care. He's becoming a real player in the cinema of ordeal.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian

If Michael Haneke were drafted in to direct an EastEnders Christmas special, it might look like this raw, no-budget, home-invasion nightmare.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

Offers little but secondhand platitudes on the dehumanising effects of violence while proving that the generation gap is as wide as ever.

Anton Bitel
Little White Lies

...bringing vastly different classes and generations into explosive collision, and utterly unsettling the bourgeois norms of a society that prefers to keep its problems on the other side of the door.

Deeply unpleasant, tightly scripted and well executed...

Stella Papamichael
Radio Times

Williams is able to create an unsettling atmosphere with simple sound effects, but he fails to provide a convincing context for the extreme antisocial behaviour.

If Williams has something important to say about hoodie culture, it's sadly lost in the haze of pot smoke.

Good playing and powerful film-making make Cherry Tree Lane distinctive.

Combining top-notch craft and strong performances across the board, particularly from the younger cast members, Cherry Tree Lane is indie filmmaking done very, very right.
