Critic Reviews for The Abduction Of Zack Butterfield

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

Subscribing to the philosophy that creepy equals interesting, the film contains barely a moment that isn't flat-footed, ludicrous or both.

If Ed Wood had directed "The Silence of the Lambs," it might have been as unin tentionally hilarious as the goofball would-be thriller "The Abduction of Zack Butterfield."

Top Critic

A cringingly awkward tale of sexual predation and female lunacy.

Woefully amateurish.

Top Critic

The script is often ludicrous (gratuitous digs at feminism; muddled commentary on war and the military), the sets look like sets, and the acting -- aside from Helsham and Plunkett -- doesn't even rise to the level of student films.

Village Voice
Top Critic

A terrible, muddled and ultimately yawning psychosexual kidnap drama. So inept and risible that it makes the case there should be some sort of creative gatekeeper, even for indie cinematic efforts.
