Critic Reviews for Make Out With Violence

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (9) | Rotten (5)

  • Filled with clear, bright images and moments of skewed genius, this delicate debut effortlessly evokes those languid summer doldrums, when even a rotting girlfriend is better than no girlfriend at all.

    August 27, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • The film invests in spacey horror tropes one moment, plunges into absurdist adolescent angst the next and begs questions every step of the way, but just about holds together.

  • Inventive without being twee, quirky without being overly Wes Anderson, and suffused with a late-adolescent sense of longing as palpably felt as it is understated.

    August 24, 2010 | Full Review…
  • Not so much a horror movie as it is a teen drama, just with a zombie thrown in for good measure.

    August 10, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • [W]hile the film tackles the subject of personal morality and ethics, it works more as a vehicle for twinkling nostalgia memories of youth.

    September 8, 2013 | Full Review…
  • A dreadfully pretentious genre-bender about the pain of unrequited love.

COMMENTS: Patrick and Wendy are best friends for life. He is crazy. She is dead. When Patrick finds Wendy reanimated, he attempts to remedy his unrequited love for her. In pursing his obsession, his existence spirals into the uncanny. Thinking, creatively minded viewers will be entranced by this peculiar, arty atmosphere tale. Not a horror movie with conventional thrills and chills, <I>Make-Out With Violence</I> is an unsettling story about love triangles and living death. Dreamy cinematic sequences blend into contrasting scenes of horror and the grotesque. Brothers Carol and Patrick love best friends Addy and Wendy respectively. Wendy loves Brian, Brian has a fling with Addy, Addy gets jealous when Carol makes eyes at her friend Anne, and Wendy is dead. Dead and inexplicably reanimated. Wendy goes missing the spring of her senior year. Never found and declared dead by the summer before college, she is discovered in a field by Carol. Undead, but in a semi-catatonic state, Wendy is mostly unresponsive. Because she was so well liked and admired by all who knew her, Carol and Patrick are compelled take her to the home of an out-of-town friend where they attempt to care for her. As the summer waxes, then wanes the brothers and their friends pursue their love interests. Carrol dates Addy. And well, Patrick "dates" dead Wendy, both siblings taking time out to tend to her as if such an endeavor is perfectly normal. All goes well until their love triangles cause them to break their pact of secrecy and Addy finds out about Wendy with macabre consequences. Good acting, pleasing photography, and a gentle, artful soundtrack compliment wholesome, likable characters, and a dreamy, sepia-toned, perspective on youth and summer. The overall effect makes the cinematic experience similar to a rosy look back at our idealized impression of golden meadows and free spiritedness in the 1970's, interspersed with creepy, repellent sequences of undeath. <I>Make-Out With Violence</I> is a different kind of horror movie, definitely not for a mainstream audience. This film is a well produced, conventionally assembled movie with a truly bizarre plot. It will appeal to fans of mood films such as the 2007 <I>One Day Like Rain</I>, who will find <I>Make-Out With Violence</I> to be infinitely more lucid and coherent. <div style="width:290px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/make-out-with-violence-13882632"><img src="http://content6.flixster.com/photo/13/88/26/13882632_ori.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com"> <div style="width:290px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com/photos/make-out-with-violence-13882627"><img src="http://content9.flixster.com/photo/13/88/26/13882627_ori.jpg" border="0"/></a><div style="text-align:center;font-size:10px;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com"> I am including the trailer below against my better judgment. Whoever put it together should be shot. It fails to adequately convey the essence, tone and substantive impact of the film, making it look like a Generation-X teenage movie, which it is not. <div style="width:120px;font-size:10px;text-align:center;"></div><a href="http://www.flixster.com/videos?videoId=11127739"><img src="http://i.ytimg.com/vi/Aqn2WjbQ3iU/2.jpg" border="0" /></a><div style="font-size:10px;width:120px;text-align:center;"><a href="http://www.flixster.com"><I>Make-Out With Violence</I> - trailer
