August 10, 2011
Good Neighbors ends up being a rather unremarkable dramatic thriller that squanders any potential for greatness it had with a bland and uninspired finale.

It's blackhearted fun, but eventually the spurt runs dry, and all that's left is a pallid corpse.

July 28, 2011
There's enough creepy tension and nefarious deeds afoot to make for a really suspenseful short film, but even at just 96 minutes, Good Neighbors outstays its welcome.
July 26, 2011
Writer/director Jacob Tierney is spun dizzy by the complex narrative of deceptions and confessions, laboring over moody particulars while the tension gradually dries up.

desperately in need of a more refined directorial palette

October 17, 2010
A romantic-comedy-cum-serial-killer-movie that bends genre to the point of snapping.

There's clear evidence that Tierney is maturing as a filmmaker, but he's not there yet, despite having the talents of Baruchel and Hampshire on his side.

July 28, 2011
The tone of the film is off-key from the beginning, a fact that's not helped by the presence of Speedman, onetime Felicity heartthrob.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
July 29, 2011
For sheer, absurd gruesomeness, one stomach-turning scene in this obnoxious, uninvolving Canadian thriller could win 2011's prize.
June 22, 2013
Not a crackerjack thriller by any means, and I'm not sure it means to be: It's a dark comedy about people who do horrible things.

August 4, 2011
Thankfully Tierney saves the film from becoming a prosaic whodunit by casually revealing the murder's identity 40 minutes in, forcing Good Neighbors to succeed as all films should, through character and style.
August 5, 2011
A sneakily absorbing indie thriller.

July 28, 2011
An agreeably sick little movie about a serial killer, a bunch of cats and the uneasy tenants of a Montreal apartment complex.
June 3, 2011
The residents of Jacob Tierney's Good Neighbours are hard to swallow and impossible to like, yet still very amusing to watch.

Good Neighbors is a darkly comedic thriller with echoes of Shallow Grave and an undercurrent of repressed Canadian rage, and though it comes to an anticlimactic end, it manages a lot with a slow build of unease.

July 26, 2011
Tierney offers what preparations he can for the offbeat darkness to come, but at least one part of the perfect, triple-crossing crime that plays out is so black you may want to wear shades.
September 24, 2010
A seriously oddball little movie...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 28, 2011
Swerving from bland to brutal, endearingly coy to shockingly explicit, the Canadian import "Good Neighbors" finds pitch-black comedy among white-bread lives.

'Good Neighbors' borders on a beneficial near amateurishness as it picks up headway to finish with a rare satisfactory twist and undeclared future.
June 13, 2011
An effective noirish drama of three neighbors with hidden, violent flaws
