  • Everyone in the cast works, especially the always-charming Monroe, but they're working in something that keeps missing the few punches it tries to throw.

  • This black comedy thriller has a good cast to spark a scenario that's intriguing enough to hold attention, if not quite clever enough to be a knockout.

  • Villains is a workmanlike thriller with a pair of memorable performances and a simplistic premise that would seemingly make it an obvious choice for release via VOD or a major streaming service.

  • For all their clever ideas and casting brilliance, Berk and Olsen fell short of giving their horror-comedy the edge it needed to make Villains as exciting as its potential.

    Aug 19, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Attention is paid to character nuance, but there's not a single original element in sight. The cornpone preciousness corrodes the narrative until all that's left is a trail of bodies and a self-satisfied smirk.

  • Villains is what would happen if two hapless and larger than life criminals from a Coen Brothers movie somehow stumbled onto the set of a horror movie
