“..unmemorable but diverting, and its slickness, modest scale and TV names are perfect for cable sale..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
Review rate : C+

“..the movie has a cat-and-mouse appeal - it's like Hard Candy crossed with a smaller-scale Deathtrap..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
1 of 4

“..goes on much too long and doesn't make one word of sense..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
2.5 of 4

“..can't build a solid thriller out of the lightweight materials at hand..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..a one-joke fizzler, leaving DHP to sashay, role-play, carry on one-sided conversations, and disco-dance on the table with just the right amount of lizardy, half-lidded sangfroid..”
by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]

by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
