Dramatically, Altered Minds is as cold as the snowy outdoors with emotionally inaccessible characters difficult for us to empathize with, even Dad.

December 31, 2015
An intriguing concept isn't explored to its full potential in this low-key psychological thriller.
November 19, 2015
A good mystery and earnest performances keep the movie lively, though the confined location and limited plot ultimately make the end product feel paltry.
November 20, 2015
It's all in the service of what turns out to be a find-what-the-filmmaker-has-hidden narrative riddle, a pretty well executed one when all is said and done, but a not terribly memorable one either.

Altered Minds moves almost too slowly through a family's dynamics but culminates with a heart-wrenching punch in the gut.
November 19, 2015
While it sometimes comes off like a staged play, it's an impressive debut from a director in full control of the material.

November 23, 2015
While lacking a grippingly sharp edge -- it heads into strange and violent territory but is never overly comfortable there -- it is always intriguing and defiantly left-field.
November 21, 2015
If the resolution isn't quite as satisfying as either the buildup or the performances by the likes of Dexter's C.S. Lee, it's still a well-made thriller.
| Original Score: 3/5
