1BR

Critics Consensus

1BR's occasionally ordinary storytelling is more than outweighed by tight direction, interesting ideas, and an effective blend of horror and thoughtful drama.

  • 1BR's unique timeline paired with its palpable tension makes for a memorable addition to the horror-movies-about-cults catalog.

  • It's an interesting idea, the execution is competent if not spectacular... And it made me really glad to live in an apartment complex where I know none of my neighbors.

  • There's a light at the end of the tunnel for Sarah, and seeing her claw her way to it is often fun, albeit in a gasp-inducing sort of way.

    April 24, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Drawing on a fascination with cults and utopian communities, the director and co-writer, David Marmor, has created a mildly entertaining survival story whose depiction of psychological indoctrination far outstrips its generic dips into torture.

    April 24, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The film gives palpable expression to the sense of hopelessness felt by those who fall under the control of cults.

    April 20, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The new horror film 1BR uses the real-life experiences of Scientologists and those in NXIVM to paint a terrifying portrait of one woman's descent into cult madness.

Audience Reviews for 1BR

  • Oct 26, 2020
    A mildly entertaining thriller where things seem off on day one when the female protagonist moves-in to an odd-ball apartment community. It turns out to be a lot more than she bargained for as she is forced to learn the communities secrets the hard way. It closes with an intriguing twist ending reminiscent of "The Invitation."
