The Roommate Reviews

John Hanlon
Big Hollywood

Instead of attempting to create a unique thriller, the filmmakers chose to make a typical one with bland characters and lackluster twists.

it's hardly worth sticking around for the routine climax of this toothless thriller just to see the ocular sweets get all chewed up and mangled.

Felix Vasquez Jr.
Cinema Crazed

One dry hump of almost thrills that are incredibly lackluster and void of any sort of suspense or tension.

The National

the direction of the film is fraught with problems, and one feels that the promising young cast deserved better than this.

Ben Rawson-Jones
Digital Spy

A storyline that unimaginatively rehashes countless pivotal elements from other stalker-themed movies means that the whole production is a dull and pointless exercise that twists and turns in precisely the manner you expect it to.

Film Freak Central

It might be genius compared to Single White Female 2: The Psycho, but know that The Roommate is ultimately about as sensitive as that dtv sequel sounds.

It is as bland as movies get. There's not one single nod or wink to the audience and it never manages to develop even an iota of suspense. What's really weird is its complete reliance on a slick modern rock soundtrack that never seems to stop.

More fun than getting stabbed, at least.

... a Miss Teen "Fatal Attraction" ‒ with baked kitten replacing rabbit stew on the menu.

The Skinny

Christainsen chooses a teen-friendly rating over cheap titillation and his uneven tone squanders all the ingredients for a good horror movie completely.

Christiansen's witless, badly acted thriller is a throwback to the early 1990s.

Elicits snores and guffaws thanks to workmanlike 'shock' moments and obvious twists.

The biggest jolt the film can muster comes when the viewer's head hits the back of the chair after nodding off

You could spend the entire movie texting your friends and not miss a thing, which I suppose its target audience may consider an asset.

Henry Fitzherbert
Daily Express

The plot never picks up steam, there are gaping implausibilities and the characters are achingly dull, with the exception of Billy Zane's hilariously smarmy and sleazy professor.

There are some interestingly nasty moments and some chills, but it's predictable and derivative.

Tim Robey
Daily Telegraph

The Roommate can't be taken seriously - for all Meester's genuine efforts, it's basically moronic games with the mentally ill - but it also misses the opportunity to go for broke, into a zone of full-tilt trash that might at least have been some fun.

Trevor Johnston
Radio Times

Billy Zane's toe-curlingly awful turn as a preening design professor turns out to be the main entertainment value on display.
