BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 09/11/2015


visit-trailerTHE VISIT

“THE VISIT is sheer guilty pleasure, and in the post summer blockbuster calm leading into the awards season storm, sometimes a little shameful indulgence is all we really need.” – Greg Vellante, Sound and Picture

THE VISIT is a poorly structured movie that doesn’t have any positive qualities.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“You will see opportunities for the story to progress into much more bizarre fare, but Shyamalan reins it in for a much easier conclusion. Shame, really.” – Sam Cohen, Under the Gun Review

“It lacks the flashiness and giant twists Shyamalan is known for, and this is a big plus for the film.” – Deirdre Crimmins, All Things Horror

“Byington’s movie is mopey but frothy, and it weighs about as much as a bag of Popchips.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“I’m sure many who’ve tired of seeing lonesome semi-hip do-nothings onscreen may have thin patience with 7 CHINESE BROTHERS. But if the category still grabs your attention, Schwartzman and cast – plus dog – will really do a fine job holding it for 75 minutes.” – Norm Schrager, Film Racket
