Richard Bates Jr. continues his quirky brand of blended genre in this entertaining look at the war of the generations.
May 17, 2020
Bates Jr's dialogue, zingy as ever, keeps everything fresh and funny, as his super-smart satire skewers many of the contradictions of these - and all - times.

Tone-Deaf is a great film with a story that is just twisted enough to keep the attention while filled with great performances and some seriously fun and weird imagery.
October 29, 2019
Bates clearly wanted to make something more than a horror movie but, in his assessment of intergenerational conflict, he is ironically tone deaf.
October 8, 2019
It's an absolute riot.
September 5, 2019
Gruesomely diverting and agreeably bizarre in shorts bursts but ultimately undone by its determination to use its characters as proxies in a facile, idiotic Boomer-vs.-Millennial culture clash.
August 25, 2019
Taught, nightmarish, and totally bold, Tone-Deaf is a singular horror film that works as both a quasi-slasher and as satire.
August 24, 2019
This is a quirky, cutting story of generation versus generation, refereed by a filmmaker who seems to find both sides fairly ridiculous.
August 23, 2019
As the nightmarish imagery intensifies and the twisted weirdness escalates, the screenplay doesn't give us anybody to root for.

In the end, Tone-Deaf proves to be a film that largely lives up to its title.

A monotonous horror-comedy.

While [Tone-Deaf can be a rollicking good time] when stripped of the excess a peripheral cast ruled by convenience provides, those moments are few and far between.

"Tone-Deaf" is devilishly hilarious for the first two acts, diving into murky psychological waters to trigger some spooky and surreal stuff for genre fans.
August 21, 2019
One things for certain, while Tone-Deaf isn't the phantasmagorical head trip the marketing suggests, it definitely bends the rules of reality just enough to feel like you've gone on a journey.
August 19, 2019
Tone-Deaf is a disaster when Robert Patrick is not on-screen, and even when he is on-screen it's only more of a watchable disaster
August 15, 2019
Despite some flaws, the witty script and solid performances still makes Tone-Deaf an entertaining watch.
July 27, 2019
The lack of commitment of its primary components prevents this from being anything but a mediocre affair.
July 25, 2019
Tone-Deaf is acrid, caustic satire, but hard to shake off, and whether you're a millennial or a boomer, you'll find things that will hit close to home.
April 22, 2019
Tone-Deaf goes from 'interesting' to 'messy' too quickly for my tastes.
