It builds suspense as it unfolds in real time--which is the film's biggest asset.

As ruthless and nerve-jangling as any motion picture from this year or last.

Well-crafted but not very enlightening. The ending will leave you both cold and confused.

Explanation, exposition and character development are at or near zero, but an atmosphere of dread is built effectively and West's technique is strong.

[A] startling sophomore feature by 26-year-old writer-director (and Larry Fessenden protégé) Ti West.

Devised for minimum fuss and maximum tension, Trigger Man is the little thriller that could.

Once the story goes Deliverance (1972), it's a nail-biter, and the minimalist aesthetic is an asset rather than a liability.

...follow-up to the killer bat movie The Roost is superior in almost every way, and cheaper, too!

Pic [has a] marvelous sense of time and space, seemingly empty of purpose yet steadily building tension.

The flick's got just just as much first-half "filler" as it does second-half intensity, so if you're a patient genre fan, I've no problem recommending the movie.
