"The Maid's Room" has much to recommend, including the versatile Mr. Camp in a Machiavellian role. But it doesn't marshal its twists toward a convincing or satisfying conclusion.
[A] sly, satisfying thriller about class, status and violence.
"The Maid's Room" doesn't quite work, intriguing premise and all, and that the fault lies with Walker's labored script and wooden characterization.
After a seductively moody intro, Michael Walker's domestic thriller devolves into a cartoonish attack on the filthy rich.
It's admirable that writer/director Michael Walker wanted to make a socially conscious thriller. But surely he didn't have to replace all the thrills with broadly moralizing messages.
There must be a compelling thriller to be made about immigration and domestic servitude, but The Maid's Room isn't it.
The Maid's Room is not as predictable as it initially seems, but it's far less impressive than its bombastic score and puffed-up script would believe.
Initially gripping, in a Hitchcock/Ozon way, this atmospheric thriller turns banal and unconvincing in its second half.
By all means a predictable affair.
Drina is less of an individual, and one whom we wish to see avenged, than a transparent martyr for the collective sins of the wealthy few.
Effective Hitchcockian suspense
