      Brian Tallerico Movie Retriever Thrillers that rely on tension-building within a small group of characters are harder to pull off than aspiring filmmakers may have been led to believe. Look no further than The Killing Jar for proof. Mar 22, 2010 Full Review Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times Strains to wring tension from a tired premise and an airless script. Rated: 2/5 Mar 19, 2010 Full Review Tom Long Detroit News There's little fun involved, for either the audience or the diner patrons. Rated: D Mar 19, 2010 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Makes no sense and is unpleasant. Rated: C+ Mar 14, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews
