Movie Info

Merle (Allison Tolman, FX's "Fargo") finds her life beginning to splinter when Sinaloa (newcomer Sophie Reid), the musician half-sister she never knew existed, appears on her doorstep in Texas. Initially distrustful of this enigmatic woman, a bond quickly forms between the two. As Merle allows her half-sister into her life, Sinaloa reveals a quiet fury through her music, and her fierce attachment begins to place Merle's career aspirations, her relationship to her mother, and even her impending marriage, in jeopardy. Merle fights to keep her world together while Sinaloa's increasingly intense and erratic behavior threatens to erupt into something darker.

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (1)

  • A sometimes-riveting 'take' on the unexpected uninvited guest plot-line, grounded to the earth by the phenomenal performances of Allison Tolman and Sophie Reid.

  • Though its slow-burn narrative doesn't pay off in a wholly satisfying manner, this offbeat nail-biter should nonetheless be welcomed by those eager for something off the beaten genre path.

  • Cortlund and Halperin breathe new life into a well-worn premise by creating two women whose points of view are equally valid, and then letting their conflict unfold without resorting to manipulative payoffs or simplistic resolutions.

    Top Critic
  • Beneath its quiet surface, the Austin, Texas-set drama "Barracuda" thrums with menace and mystery from first moment to last.

    October 5, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A smart, tense movie with two great performances at its center.

    March 13, 2017 | Full Review…
  • [An] absorbing, mostly low-key thriller, which builds atmosphere, psychological texture, an ingrained sense of place and a needling undercurrent of dread.
