  • Very often, comedy-horror is a tricky style with each of the two notional genres being alibis for the other's absence: ie, neither funny nor scary. Not here, though.

  • A too-familiar vibe hangs over much of the film, whose comic violence is nothing new and whose banter underwhelms, but the pic gets more fun as it goes...

  • There are some truly inspired moments in Boyz in the Wood, enough to save it if you're in the right mood and with the right crowd.

  • What BOYZ IN THE WOOD does best in its vast array of comic weapons is a whipsmart use of setup, payoff, and callbacks akin to the works of Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish that are surprising, energetic, and incredibly rewarding.

  • Boyz in the Wood is an alchemical concoction of many ingredients, but they all mix together to become a transmuted whole that transcends each of its facets.

    Jul 5, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
  • Charming, heart-warming, and entirely engrossing, Boyz in the Wood is a promising debut feature from writer/director Ninian Doff.
