... a film well worth seeing, for freaks, the freak adjacent and for fans of films unafraid to take some risks and blow the bloody doors off.

Timpson's clearly into weird cinema, and with Come to Daddy, he's effectively made exactly the kind of film he likes to program at his own festival ... [he also] has a lot of surprises up his sleeve; one of them is very, very clever.

...an awkward and sometimes silly black-comedy-cum-horror-pic that still manages to feel surprisingly unsavoury much of the time.

Some movies you just can't prepare for. This is one of those. It's a wild and original ride. [Full review in Spanish].
March 30, 2020
A pitch black comedic thriller that director Ant Timpson bathes in gory oddity.
March 23, 2020
Don't mistake Come to Daddy as anything less than unbridled, of course, but for such a staunchly bonkers movie, composure rules Timpson's aesthetic.

... comes with lots of traps and manipulation. And that was exactly how I felt while watching it - trapped in nonsense and manipulated by artificial maneuvers.

It's never dull, but doesn't really add up to much.

Come to Daddy is a cartoony midnight movie, tailor-made for the outré-loving genre-crowd-but if your taste runs a little more mainstream, you might want to give this one a miss.

Although it wears its inspirations and influences proudly and openly, there is still some originality and a clear voice here.
February 21, 2020
Come to Daddy oozes Timpson's remarkable devotion to the emotional, surreal and vicious with grotesque gusto.
February 20, 2020
McHattie and Wood have great dramatic and comedic chemistry, but Come to Daddy never regains the first half-hour's sense of bizzaro tension.
February 18, 2020
A true crowd-pleaser for adventurous audiences that packs a surprising amount of nuance under the hood.
February 16, 2020
Things become really strange, violent and ridiculous.
February 15, 2020
Incredibly violent and very fun and very strange.

Any film that opens quoting William Shakespeare and Beyoncé is meant to be regarded with skepticism and giggles, but this dog gets sillier by the minute.
February 14, 2020
Although the film slightly loses its way while accelerating to its conclusion, the splatter of dark comedy and dysfunctional father-son dynamics is always engaging and frequently smart.
February 13, 2020
Thoroughly cringy and calculating, the calling card for Come to Daddy will make gagging to the peculiar whims of this welcoming warped B-movie blister a fine goosebump gem to consider with passing cynicism.
February 12, 2020
Should you be ready for a quick and twisty thriller that isn't afraid to make you laugh with an occasional moment of gross content and bodily harm, then Come To Daddy.
February 11, 2020
Come to Daddy may not reach the frenzied, hallucinatory heights of Mandy, but even as a little brother it's not all that far off.
