The score, cinematography, and general premise are all good reasons to seek this out and enjoy it when you can. However, couch your expectations with the understanding that this is not a spear-sharp thriller.

Despite its many flaws and shortcomings, The Body At Brighton Rock is enjoyable when taken as a cheap comedy with some high tension moments.

outdoors ordeal in which character & genre are pushed to the limits. Wendy's night in the woods, grounded by the natural surroundings but also coming with a hallucinatory, existential terror, is as much psychological journey as backwoods bivouac

Body at Brighton Rock is a fantastic debut for Roxanne Benjamin. It boasts a strong performance from Fontes and an anxiety-inducing premise.
May 2, 2019
The most pleasing part about Benjamin's film debut is the material isn't treated as a hallowed story; this a horror film that's looking to have fun with minimalism.

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

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.

April 23, 2019
Relating to Wendy, and to her terror, is easy, and immediate, and lets the movie hook its claws into the viewer with jolting urgency.

Body at Brighton Rock is a confident and deceptively sophisticated celebration of women who can't do everything, but who find a way to make it through regardless

While there are some lulls to the story where the film feels like it spins its wheels a bit, Body at Brighton Rock is still an admirable effort from [Roxanne] Benjamin, who crafts an intriguing cinematic rumination on the effects of isolation and fear.

Even with a simple narrative, Benjamin manipulates it for all that its worth in terms of spooky atmosphere, chilling moments of abject terror, and a tone that skillfully toggles between fun irreverence and uncomfortably dark.
