There's no attempt to be seriously disturbing, or to offer us anything more than a macabre good time. Still, on that level the film delivers.

[A] witty, endlessly suspenseful US slasher movie that critiques privilege and entitlement.
September 28, 2019

This horror comedy muffs both the humor and the drama.
August 27, 2019
This new offering in the hide-and-seek horror genre rests on a foundation of class warfare and achieves a deft balance between gruesome horror and black comedy.
August 23, 2019
[Weaving is] vulnerable, deadpan funny, scared and resolute, turning a role that could have been one-dimensional into something vibrant and authentic.
August 23, 2019
What a decadent blast to watch a comic takedown of the rich done with the rude energy of a horror thriller and the courage of its own manic anti-marriage convictions.

It's fast and fun, Weaving's pretty spectacular, and the finale is as cheerfully hokey as one can hope for.
August 21, 2019
"The Most Dangerous Game" with notes of "Rosemary's Baby" and the sassy, snarky 'tude of "Heathers."

The film is charismatic and thrilling enough to bypass its shortcomings.
August 20, 2019
Relentless and thoroughly preposterous, Guy Busick and R. Christopher Murphy's script hews to its own batty logic, its frantic pacing peppered with morbid humor.
August 20, 2019
It's predictable and sometimes a little bit unsteady... but it was fun.
