Meagan Navarro Bloody Disgusting A reinvention of the ‘80s aesthetic, a deft genre blend, and intimate empathy afforded to all of its unique characters make this retro form experiment a fascinating watch. Rated: 3.5/5 Mar 11, 2024 Full Review Molly Henery The Blogging Banshee Dead Mail is a textural 80's throwback that gives an intimate, even empathetic view of the drastic measures one man will take to avoid loneliness. Rated: 7/10 Apr 12, 2024 Full Review Alan French Sunshine State Cineplex It’s hard to ignore this charming tale of kidnapping and death. By the end, you’ll see a vision of human darkness with few peers. Rated: 9/10 Apr 6, 2024 Full Review John Fink The Film Stage Dead Mail marries the aesthetic of a cold institutional documentary with a slasher flick and, in its best moments, is one of the most exciting horror films of the year. Rated: B Mar 26, 2024 Full Review Mary Beth McAndrews Dread Central ‘Dead Mail’ takes contemporary ideas about the 1980s and nostalgia and twist them into a neo-Fargo narrative about being in the wrong place and the wrong time, small-town violence, and trying to just find a friend. Rated: 4/5 Mar 18, 2024 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film Everything here looks grimy, as if the film itself had been lying around in poor conditions for years, and colours and patterns are artfully mismatched. Rated: 3.5/5 Mar 16, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
