Movie Info

Wendy, a part-time summer employee at a mountainous state park, takes on a rough trail assignment at the end of the season, trying to prove to her friends that she's capable enough to do the job. When she takes a wrong turn and ends up deep in the backcountry, she stumbles upon what might be a potential crime scene. Stuck with no communication after losing her radio and with orders to guard the site, Wendy must fight the urge to run and do the harder job of staying put -- spending the night deep in the wilderness, facing down her worst fears and proving to everyone -- including herself -- that she's made of stronger stuff than they think she is.

Critic Reviews for Body at Brighton Rock

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (7)

  • [Benjamin] nails that cheapo retro aesthetic with a story that's thematically richer and much more interesting than one might expect for the genre.

    Apr 25, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • Benjamin doesn't quite succeed in demonstrating her premise that life-or-death situations can empower an unwilling victim to become an unexpected hero.

  • It takes a promising premise loaded with white-knuckle, things-go-bump-in-the-night possibilities and proceeds to do surprisingly little with them over the course of its slim 87-minute running time.

  • Wild animals. Dead bodies. Rustling noises in the dark. With these minimalist elements, Benjamin casts a nerve-fraying spell, playing tricks on the audience.

  • The film might be frivolous and somewhat half-formed, but it's more than enough to make anyone feel very stupid if they expected Benjamin to fail.

    Apr 23, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Deftly employing the power of suggestion and an emotionally potent sound design, "Body at Brighton Rock" is a well-crafted thriller with some crafty tricks up its sleeve.

  • Jun 10, 2019
    My first big disappointment of 2019. Not to say it was truly horrendous, there's worse movies this year, I'm sure, but Body at Brighton Rock is the first one I've come across that I was expecting to be good, and really wasn't.
