It's not a perfect blend, but Ben Wheatley's film is different enough - on second thought, let's just call it what it is: weird - to warrant your attention. Your admiration, even.

It's usually difficult to find serial killers who are sympathetic and even charming, but this amusing dark comedy does just that without sacrificing its moral compass.
June 12, 2013
A quick, dry, acidic comedy that will appeal to anyone who likes horror movies or pitch-black humor.

Welcome to My Camp
May 31, 2013
One of the funniest, and bleakest, comedies of the season.
May 31, 2013
A British black comedy made in the spirit of "let's run with this demented premise till the tank is empty."
May 31, 2013
It's just not quite funny enough.
May 30, 2013
What starts out as a sunny, funny getaway soon turns hilariously dark, a fusion of tabloid sensationalism and social satire ... a royal hoot, the funniest British import since 'Shaun of the Dead.'
May 30, 2013
With a wink and a shrug, Sightseers shows us evil in all its banality.
May 30, 2013
A brilliant, deliciously wicked, and thoroughly enjoyable road film ...

Bloody good camping trip tale
May 17, 2013
It's funny and dark, but it's also unconventionally insightful and full of heart - or at least the hearts that are left beating.
May 16, 2013
Darkly funny as it is, the movie has undercurrents of genuine and very British weirdness.
May 16, 2013
It's the sort of snappy little idea that would probably work better as a short film, but when Wheatley latches onto a concept as big as his talent, I bet we'll be in for something special.
May 16, 2013
Wheatley is strikingly effective in his manipulation of tone, establishing a queasy intimacy that only intensifies as the movie progresses.
May 15, 2013
Wheatley playfully bends genres in this romantic-comedy road movie so we never know what might happen next.
May 11, 2013
Initially funny and imaginative, but increasingly lazy, unfunny and tedious. It would have worked better as a short.
May 10, 2013
Director Ben Wheatley is capable of simultaneously embracing both the awkward comedy and creeping horror of Chris and Tina's voyage into darkness.
May 10, 2013
What begins as an alert and witty barbed satire degenerates into a senseless bloodbath in the black comedy "Sightseers."
May 9, 2013
Sightseers homicidal holiday isn't just a pitch-black comedy made with skill, will and brains; it's also another demonstration that Wheatley is, to use an all-too-appropriate phrase, going places.
