    Yep. The title fits perfectly. While watching, you feel as if it's getting worse and it'll never end in a good way. This was an experience. The cast was perfect. the Entourage dude was incredible. The chick from The Final Girls was amazing. The grandma was mesmerizing. The Excision girl showed once again that she's more than a pretty face. It's hilarious in spots and downright terrifying in others. I Loved it and now Mr. Richard Bates Jr is on my radar.

  • ★★★★ review by Nikolas on Letterboxd

    You just dont know where this movie will take you. Starts off as a comedy about an edgy guy, who is a douchebag, then goes to relationship drama, then to horror movie. Good soundtrack, miserable after feeling, hints of comedy through out. A good watch my man, every movie should be like this.

  • ★★★★ review by Liam Hathaway on Letterboxd

    This misanthropically black comedy-horror sees its director fulfill the promise of his barnstorming debut, Excision. After its tepid and too-goofy-for-its-own-good follow-up, Suburban Gothic, I was worried Bates, Jr. might continue to squander his talent for channeling the jaundiced social nastiness of Neil LaBute and Todd Solondz with macabre genre films, but Trash Fire has well and truly put those qualms to rest (for now, at least). This is an excellent exploration of dysfunctional family tribulations and relationship compromises, while it is also served by the most acerbic dialogue of the year and a biting anti-religious subtext that bubbles under the surface. One of my favourite films of the year so far.
