      Family Dinner

      2022 1h 37m Horror Mystery & Thriller List
      100% Tomatometer 18 Reviews Tired of feeling down about her weight, plus-sized 15-year-old Simi (Nina Katlein) heads to her aunt Claudia's house for Easter weekend. Claudia (Pia Hierzegger) is a popular nutritionist who's written best-selling health books, so for Simi, spending a few days together could help change her diet and inspire weight loss. What should've been a nice holiday weekend with family, however, quickly reveals itself to be anything but. Simi's cousin, Filipp (Alexander Sladek), is curiously hostile towards her, while Filipp's stepdad, Stefan (Michael Pink), is curiously the opposite towards Simi, all while Claudia's dietary guidance verges on becoming overly militant. What's causing everyone to act so strangely and aggressively? The answers are even worse than Simi's worst nightmares. Read More Read Less Watch on Fandango at Home Buy Now

      Meagan Navarro Bloody Disgusting Family Dinner unfurls its methodical slow-burn tale in the days leading up to Easter Sunday, centering volatile relationships and strict, peculiar holiday traditions to create deep-seated psychological dread. Rated: 3/5 Jun 11, 2022 Full Review Nuha Hassan Flip Screen A unique story with an interesting ending that highlights the enormous strength one character can hold. Rated: 4/5 Sep 4, 2023 Full Review Paul Lê Tales from the Paulside Family Dinner runs the risk of being underwhelming, largely because of its self-control and foreseeable finale, but a closer look reveals ingredients not visible on the surface. Rated: 3.5/5 Jul 23, 2023 Full Review Anton Bitel Projected Figures Something is clearly cooking for Easter Sunday’s dinner in Peter Hengl’s slow-burn feature debut, building its sense of dread from the outset but only gradually putting all the pieces on the table. Sep 1, 2022 Full Review Caitlyn Downs ScaredSheepless.com An exercise in tension that goes far beyond the realm of awkward dinner conversation. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 21, 2022 Full Review Samuel Leggett Jr. JVS Media & Productions/Team JVS Easter weekend gets the horror treatment and the way this this film ends it is sure to rock you. Very well done suspense horror, that has moments or terror and sadist plot points. With good performances and building tone makes this memorable Rated: 7/10 Aug 11, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
