Movie Info

Tyler is a young man who is desperately seeking direction from a world that seems to have abandoned him. Everyday at school he fights for survival, as he is easy prey amongst the endless hallways of fellow student predators. Searching for answers he looks to his friend Indrid who appears to have it all figured out. Tyler takes Indrid's ideology and adopts it as his own. Not long after, Tyler sees the whole picture more clearly but is this new vision for the better? Or could it be more damaging than he could have ever imagined? Soon, Tyler finds himself in the middle of the storm and gets caught up in something he may not be able to change.

Critic Reviews for Natural Selection

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

This debut feature plays like a glum after-school special whose jealousies and painful secrets project little heat.

December 22, 2016 | Full Review…

There's little that comes off as "natural" in "Natural Selection," a stiffly heavy-handed, drawn-out, faith-based drama about a Christ-like teen struggling to find his true path.

August 25, 2016 | Full Review…

Woefully, Natural Selection is unable to deliver. From the script to production quality, it plays off as overdone and out of touch.

May 31, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

... it tries to be much more meaningful and intelligent than it is, wanting to make sweeping statements about humanity and cruelty but the end only manages to trip over its own contrived, soap opera dramatics.
