Southbound Reviews

August 8, 2016
Abstract and eerily incomplete, Southbound unfolds in a place where Marienbad heads south to the Twilight Zone and Dead End, and where moral failings collide with macabre consequences.

Southbound delivers more than its fair share of pulpy, grisly thrills with its quintet of creepy tales set on a suitably desolate stretch of highway.
March 4, 2016
What makes Southbound stand out is how all-round solid it is, its scary segments joined by a setting (driving through the desert) and a theme (guilt).

Southbound strives for unity and mostly succeeds.

"Southbound" packs a punch.
February 9, 2016
Despite its occasional slack, Southbound is still tightly knotted where so many other films of its type are frayed at the seams.
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 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.

Just when we think we've got it all figured out, Southbound serves up another deliciously bloody twist.
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.

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.
February 2, 2016
The horror anthology genre gets a shot in the arm with Southbound, an uncommonly cohesive and intelligent example of the form.

Southbound reminded me of Creepshow in its twisted sense of humor and unpredictability. That's a major compliment.
