      Critics Consensus

      Devoid of chills, thrills, or even cheap titillation, The Roommate isn't even bad enough to be good.

      Wolfgang G The Roommate ist ein Psychothriller des Regisseurs Christian E. Christiansen… Die niedliche Sara beginnt ihr erstes Semester an der Uni voller Vorfreude. Alles entwickelt sich bestens, ihre neue Mitbewohnerin Rebecca wird schnell zu ihrer besten Freundin… Das Drehbuch gleicht einem durchschnittlichen, spannungsgeladenen Nervenkitzel… ja ein langatmiger und vorhersehbarer Psychothriller ohne Schrecken… Kurz gesagt, drei Sterne… Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/25/23 Full Review Luis Otavio F This is anything but cool. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/06/22 Full Review Minh N It was perfect, for me. Rebecca's condition is not bipolar, it's borderline pd. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/15/22 Full Review rosalie w Proof that Minka Kelly isn't known for anything other than botox and fucking any A-lister she can sink her claws into (married or not). This project shows that 1. Yes, you can get acting jobs if you lay on your back and open your legs but 2. No, not good ones because being a famewhore can only take you so far. If you want to be known for anything other than who you fuck than you need to actually have at least a modicum of talent. Something Minks show's time and time again she lacks. Thank god for botox, nose jobs, and breast implants, right minks? Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie isn't even bad enough to be good. It is really just a far below par thriller desperately wishes it were different. Meester's performance has the feeling of a sports car in neutral. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member "Murder can really ruin a friendship" While the movie doesn't have a high enough chill or thrill factor it's still got an alright plot, could be more creepy. Leighton Meester was great, loved seeing her in a different role than Blaire from Gossip Girl. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Philip French Guardian Christiansen's witless, badly acted thriller is a throwback to the early 1990s. Apr 10, 2011 Full Review Robbie Collin News of the World Bunk. Rated: 2/5 Apr 9, 2011 Full Review Derek Malcolm London Evening Standard A disaster from start to finish. Rated: 1/5 Apr 8, 2011 Full Review Trace Thurman Horror Queers Podcast It's just so damn boring. Rated: 2/5 Jan 30, 2024 Full Review Joe Lipsett Horror Queers Podcast A disappointing re-tread of Single White Female that pulls its narrative punches and wastes its talented "teen" cast. Leighton Meester deserved better; let her cut loose! Rated: 2/5 Jan 25, 2024 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review The movie was made for tame crowds out for safe chills and a predictable outcome, and that level of banality is exactly what’s delivered.
