Critic Reviews for Scalene

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

While occasionally unpleasant, the film never crosses the line from bearably chilling to unbearably gruesome, keeping its characters credible and its events explicable.

Jan 19, 2012 | Rating: 4/5

The resolution of its conflicting truths proves so bizarre and idiotically off-the-wall that it mitigates all that precedes it.

Top Critic

Strong performances and a Hitchcock-trained eye build unnerving tension into its depiction of the intimate stress of caring for an invalid and the ways people might or might not crack under it.

Your experience with the film will last long after that scene is over, and the investment of time is absolutely worth it.

A masterful piece of independent filmmaking...

Sep 12, 2013 | Full Review…

This methodical thriller becomes doubly troubling by ensuring that all of its pieces, in the final appraisal, don't fit together.
