      Glenn Kenny RogerEbert.com One of the things that makes the movie work is that it acknowledges this fact but then makes the premise terrifyingly credible. Rated: 3/4 Jun 4, 2024 Full Review Kyle Smith Wall Street Journal Without straining to make an obvious point, Mr. Tomnay uses black comedy and shocking splatters of gore to tweak the class of jaded plutocrats who are as asset-rich as they are morals-poor. May 31, 2024 Full Review Courtney Howard Variety The obvious Aesop’s Fables-inspired lessons make what could’ve been an extraordinary meal into something far less memorable. May 30, 2024 Full Review Michael Talbot-Haynes Film Threat What You Wish For is everything you could wish for in a well-lit plunge into the abyss. Rated: 8/10 Jun 14, 2024 Full Review Andy Klein FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) It's pretty suspenseful as Stahl is trying to endlessly evade the corporation he is working for. Jun 8, 2024 Full Review Abbie Bernstein Assignment X Smart black comedy horror. Rated: B Jun 7, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jay S This movie turned out to be surprisingly exciting! The plot kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. While the acting and overall direction could use some improvement, I would still recommend watching it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/20/24 Full Review L S Utterly enjoyable, well acted throughout, not an inch of boredom or malaise in it. Dark AF, and plays like a really strong pilot for a series. Worth your time. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/19/24 Full Review Castille B Different movie that was surprisingly intense. If it had a massive budget would've been a movie of the year candidate. Good directing! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/17/24 Full Review Stoner J Pretty decent low budget cannibal horror flick. Not quite ‘Fresh’ but good. The ending could use some work though Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/19/24 Full Review Vanessa S Wasnt my favorite. It was kinda slow. Wasn't terrible but they definitely could have done more with the story. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/12/24 Full Review Les N Hmm. Not sure what to think...though I watched it to the end. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/12/24 Full Review Read all reviews
