Dig Two Graves Reviews

March 27, 2017
As much a coming-of-age tale as it is a cautionary one, Adams' feature does a credible job building suspense, but never really delivers on the horror scares that early scenes telegraph.

Isler, with her serious blue eyes and bell-bottoms, at times recalls a young Jodie Foster and projects an intriguing aloofness.

Frustrating though Dig Two Graves generally is from a storytelling standpoint, it's consistently a visual pleasure.

If you don't think too hard about it afterward, "Dig Two Graves" impresses on the whole, its general flavor closer to something like a spookier "To Kill a Mockingbird" than it is to Stephen King territory ...
