Southbound Reviews

The filmmakers are given reign to their individual tales but always with the binding thread that makes "Southbound" the kind of horror film that even a non-fan of the genre, like me, can appreciate.

A nifty horror production, showing imagination with surprises and intensity.
February 11, 2016
"Southbound" packs a punch.

Southbound is that rarest of creatures: a satisfying horror anthology film.
February 10, 2016
Anthology movies, almost by definition, are mixed bags ... Southbound is no different.
February 9, 2016
Very flawed, but it works as a fun diversion with potential to live on as a midnight horror picture...

Despite its occasional slack, Southbound is still tightly knotted where so many other films of its type are frayed at the seams.
February 8, 2016
A rock-solid horror anthology that boasts numerous nasty surprises.
February 6, 2016
...one of the most rewarding horror anthologies to come down the pike, only one of its five stories treading water.
February 5, 2016
This entertaining-enough quartet of loosely interwoven terror tales falls right into the middle ground of horror omnibuses, with no outright duds but no truly memorable (or scary) segments either.
February 5, 2016
Tricksters and demons, vengeful spirits and serial killers, the hope of salvation and the lingering presence of Satan: These are the things that Southbound is made of.

[T]here's a sense of some overarching mythology to this highway. Each short reveals another aspect of it without giving away or explaining too much.
February 4, 2016
For all its gore and violence, stabs at tension and nightmarish intrigue, the film proves a slow-going, largely unsatisfying ride.
February 4, 2016
"Southbound" is something you don't see much anymore: an anthology horror film. Its five segments do what they're supposed to do - unsettle you - but as a bonus, they also leave you wanting more.
February 4, 2016
Just when we think we've got it all figured out, Southbound serves up another deliciously bloody twist.
February 4, 2016
Frankly, it's not even in the league of recent genre anthologies like A Christmas Horror Story and Tales of Halloween.
February 4, 2016
As the narrative rises and falls, the dark mood remains consistent.
February 4, 2016
With one notable exception, the quality of this horror anthology mostly heads in one direction: south.
February 4, 2016
Tacking the weakest segments onto the end of the film may leave some viewers exiting the theater with a shrug, but the interesting bits are original enough to stick.
February 3, 2016
Just as most of [the characters] can't outrun their pasts, neither can they escape familiar plot contrivances that try too hard and achieve too little.
