Critic Reviews for Bad Fever

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (3)

  • Heavy on the awkward silences and joggling, invasive close-ups.

    May 11, 2012 | Full Review…
  • As the camera skitters spastically around its troubled schlub, the film becomes a muddy, minimalist moan of desperation.

    February 2, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/5
  • Audley, a helmer in his own right, somehow infuses Eddie with a compelling presence that exerts an offbeat authenticity.

    Top Critic
  • From its opening white-letters-on-red-background credit sequence to its diligent focus on a wayward loner drifting about the outskirts of society and sanity, Bad Fever has the empathetic soul of '70s American filmmaking.

    January 31, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Defa exerts delicate control over his incendiary material and evokes emotional terrors with a sympathetic directness; his raw-toned drama is quietly hectic and brutally poignant.

    January 30, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Rather than express any emotional truth of its own, Bad Fever merely adopts an attitude that resembles one.

    January 29, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
