  • Through focused storytelling, expansive imagination and some calibrated madness, Vivarium becomes a wild ride within the confines of a nightmarish lifestyle.

  • It is a superior genre piece at heart, but elevated by its high-calibre leads Imogen Poots and Jesse Eisenberg, plus a script rich in political and cultural resonance.

  • Come for the striking set design and killer performances, stay for the immersive mystery, and leave with a crippling fear of children and nagging concerns about the universe's cruel indifference.

  • It casts a creepy spell and further establishes Finnegan and Shanley as a team with imagination and command of their craft to spare.

  • For audiences willing to embrace its artificial staginess, its consideration of the mundane and its dark sense of humor Vivarium is well worth the trip out to the burbs.
