  • ★★★½ review by Chris on Letterboxd

    An intriguing and somewhat surreal dark comedy which is pretty visually disgusting for much of its run time. It plays on revenge fantasy and it does help that the focus of the revenge is an estate agent, a profession which is not exactly universally respected. I wonder how it would have worked with a nurse or a doctor or something like that.

    Some of the visuals and camerawork are interesting but the focus is on the conceit and the unravelling of the story, and it's pretty well done. I liked the claustrophobic feel of it and the way the way the nauseating actions of the Spanish guy are shown, you really feel how repellent he seems at the start, and it mirrors the estate agent perfectly. Worth a watch.

    This movie was gross, and pointless, but it has a lot of charm and original ideas. Hidden gem.

  • ★★★½ review by deadlyrivers on Letterboxd

    Plays its hand too early, and the attempts at comedy sometimes undermine the nastiness, but this is, for the most part, a genuinely unsettling, unusual and creepy watch. Dominic Bridges is one to watch, he has great ideas, and a good eye for visuals and making the most of a small budget, so, despite the film's shortcomings, there is shitloads of potential here.

  • ★★★½ review by Matt Bauer on Letterboxd

    So gross, so disturbing, so unsettling, yet completely hilarious; of course, it's comedy of the very dark and twisted kind, but funny is funny. The less said, the better, so just watch it. If you've ever had that weird feeling that you aren't alone in your house, welcome to your nightmare.

  • ★★★★ review by Robbie on Letterboxd

    Soo delightfully wicked all the way through. Loses a bit of its creep factor after you understand what’s going on, but good lord this is super dark and damn funny at times.
