Critic Reviews for Random Acts of Violence

All Critics (65) | Top Critics (3)

A movie that thinks it's saying something about gratuitous violence and exploitation of real tragedy but is even more hypocritically hollow than the films it purports to criticize.

August 20, 2020 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

An exasperating serial killer-slasher.

Top Critic

The filmmaker accomplishes some small, gross wonders working on his tiny budget, and wrings strong performances from most of his cast.

July 31, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A loathsome film that seems to hate its characters, creators, and audience in equal measure.

September 3, 2020 | Rating: D- | Full Review…

A great slasher that is able to stir feelings of discomfort in its discourse alone. [Full Review in Spanish]

August 30, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The movie often seems uncertain just how meta to be about this material: Is it a serious slasher movie, or a semi-satirical commentary on the genre? Hence a lot here doesn't quite work.
