Martin Unsworth Starburst Being mostly a two-hander, Tori Kostic and William Kircher have to be consistently good, so it's great to be able to say that they are fantastic. The dynamic between the pair is electric and leads the way brilliantly to its startling climax. Rated: 3/5 Sep 1, 2021 Full Review Alix Turner Horror Obsessive I've had my fill of films about men capturing women. This one definitely came at the model from a different angle, though. One to watch if you get the chance, before you hear much more about it. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 31, 2021 Full Review Kat Hughes THN An unsettling, claustrophobic, and intense viewing experience, Captive draws you in and holds you in place up until its finale, which will leave you spiralling. Rated: 4/5 Aug 31, 2021 Full Review Anton Bitel Projected Figures The interplay between these two characters outlines both the trap - and the internal contradictions - of patriarchy, in a film whose cat-and-mouse tensions and power games take on an increasingly psychological dimension. Aug 28, 2021 Full Review Hugues Porquier Battle Royale With Cheese Between the attempts to escape and the different twists, "Captive" is therefore a very good thriller. Jun 4, 2021 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Intense low-budget indie psychological thriller. Rated: B- Jun 3, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member There is no doubt in my mind that even the weakest teenage female, both mentally and physically, could have escaped such an unbalanced and inept captor within days. Her escape attempts were laughable and unrealistic. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Extremely disappointing. There must have been very few reviews when me and my brother saw the meter at 100%. It was slow and the "twist" wasn't all that great. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Captive, formerly titled Katherine's Lullaby, is a slow-burn horror/thriller from skilled writer/director Savvas Christou. Teenage runaway Lily (Tori Kostic), fleeing her abusive father, gets kidnapped and held against her will by a delusional older man (William Kircher) convinced she's actually his daughter. In order to survive, Lily must play pretend for as long as it takes. A limited cast and setting keeps the action small-scale, working to the benefit of the unnerving and intimate narrative.
