Critic Reviews for South of Heaven

Wigham is the only actor who seems to be having fun with the overwrought script; but he was born to play smarmy Southern creeps.

South of Heaven's most meaningful moments are in the interplay between Lilly and Sudeikis as the star-crossed lovers with time most definitely not on their side... It's hard not to wish that there'd been more time with them.

October 15, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

South of Heaven devolves into a rote thriller, with henchmen upon henchmen upon henchmen falling by the wayside until the inevitable showdown - which plays out in underwhelming fashion.

October 8, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The film has its pleasures, but they come only in the moments where the unexpected happens.

October 8, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

A Texas melodrama that's as convincing as a taxidermied jackalope

October 8, 2021 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

Straight-faced and suspenseful at first, wacky and almost randomly nihilistic afterwards, South Of Heaven just doesn't know what it wants to be.
