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.
Beneath its quiet surface, the Austin, Texas-set drama "Barracuda" thrums with menace and mystery from first moment to last.
A smart, tense movie with two great performances at its center.
[An] absorbing, mostly low-key thriller, which builds atmosphere, psychological texture, an ingrained sense of place and a needling undercurrent of dread.
Where the script leaves the character of Merle a shell, Tolman picks up the slack in her subtle and often heartbreaking performance.
Barracuda may not have the sharp teeth of the Hollywood nail-biters that have swum before in familiar waters. But if you're attuned to its slow-burn charm, it still offers some bite.
... gradually ratchets up the tension and offers a fresh take on familiar material.
"Barracuda" is subtle, measured work, but highly successful and chilling.
Looking and feeling like a true independent film, it was a shame that it felt so uneven and limited in thrills along the way.
Slowly but surely, Merle's perfectly curated existence is thrown out of whack by Sinaloa's antics.
