Movie Info

For 40,000 years, a long forgotten wetland teemed with ancient creatures, but now all that's left is a pit of hot, sticky tar surrounded by a vast urban landscape. For Barry Greenwood and his son Zach, there's not much left of their family business either. With the city's subway expanding under their feet and their office building slated for demolition, Barry, Zach and their employees are forced to shut down their shop and move out. Three family generations and three lifetimes of hard work to be turned into rubble. But when something primal is awoken by the underground construction, a night of somber packing becomes a desperate fight for survival.

Critic Reviews for Tar

All Critics (8)

There are several strong suits to Tar that bubble to the surface and keep your interest...However, Tar does get stuck in some of the muck that weighs it down with a lack of clarity and intent.

This one is destined for the bottom of the bargain bin, where it will probably get stuck.

October 22, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Works neither as a horror picture nor as a comedy-or as a mixture of the two.

October 22, 2020 | Rating: D | Full Review…

As Tar dragged on and on, I could not believe they were actually going to stretch the paper-thin story out to one hour and thirty-six minutes.

October 5, 2020 | Full Review…

Tar delivers exactly what it appears to be: It's a low-budget horror flick that mostly succeeds in blending deliberately tacky horror with an impish sense of humor.

I like the film's idea and the fun it has with a legend, but I wish it were executed just a bit better, no pun intended.
