All Critics (61) | Top Critics (18)

A suspenseful, violent horror film that touches on the inner lives of sexual predators, the question of guilt and remorse in the human soul, and the practice of torture.

Unpredictable, with a twisted surprise around each corner, Big Bad Wolves is a clever and arresting shocker.

Top Critic

There's little to the movie other than shocks and gross-outs.

January 24, 2014 | Rating: 2/4

It is an intriguing film with much to admire, but it doesn't always earn its pitch-black attempts at humor.

January 23, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Tarantino-aping hasn't died out entirely; it's just moved to Israel.

January 17, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

While Big Bad Wolves delivers the Hostel-like torture jolts with ruthless precision, the movie is also a rudely funny satire of a macho, paranoid culture where the protection of children is used to justify any conduct.

The main characters in this manage to be extremely charming as they go to some dark twisty places. It's like Tarantino with a heart.
