April 16, 2021
A simple premise is delivered with a good deal of confidence and craftsmanship. And creepiness.
March 1, 2021
Despite its tendency to tiptoe around some of the truly dark elements of the story, Kindred is an unsettling slow-burn featuring two powerhouse performances from Tamara Lawrance and Fiona Shaw.

Kindred is a fascinating thriller that can't be contained.
December 6, 2020
Never lets up on the doom, thrusting its Black female protagonist into an unfamiliar, uncaring world dominated by patriarchal values and bourgeois whiteness.
December 4, 2020
While it's a fascinating character study, Kindred is a limp thriller.
December 4, 2020
If not for the movie's finale, a painted-into-a-corner finish that seems needlessly cruel and inorganic to what's happened before, "Kindred" could be one of the great thrillers of the last year.
December 2, 2020
Chilling psychological thriller has some gore and language.
November 28, 2020
[Tamara] Lawrance and [Fiona] Shaw give performances that add depth to their roles ... These performances elevate the quality of Kindred, which has a lot of characteristics of being a mediocre 'woman in peril' movie that will leave some viewers cold.
November 26, 2020
It just never really gets going and feels like we've seen it all before.
November 20, 2020
Vexing maternal psychodrama.
November 19, 2020
Kindred is a ragged cry of rebellion, calling out to the flock to join forces against the darkness
November 17, 2020
Kindred is packed with significant talent, but the slow pace and tedious script leaves the audience looking for the exit before the movie gets going.
November 17, 2020
Well acted, beautifully shot and pointlessly disturbing--the audience seems as much a victim of sadism as the main character held prisoner in a creepy, creaky country home.
November 17, 2020
Add director Joe Marcantonio's debut feature to the list of recent genre works that are actually family dramas couched in the effective framework of horror and/or thriller.
November 16, 2020
This could have been a Rosemary's Baby hybrid with some old English horror thrown in, but Kindred simply fails to measure up.
November 14, 2020
Its co-writer/director has pulled off a rare feat: He's created a work that interrogates grief with a sociopolitical undercurrent without losing sight of the fact that this is a horror film in the first place.
November 12, 2020
An ace cast makes the most of each quietly intense scene as the tension escalates to almost unbearable levels.
November 11, 2020
Real thrills, cultivated from familiar material...a solid effort.
November 10, 2020
Succeeds in updating a classic horror shell and giving it modern resonance.
November 10, 2020
Kindred has promise, but it ultimately seems self-defeatingly reluctant to embrace its own genre nature... not bad, yet its cautious good taste finally just kills the fun without providing any more substantial reward.
