On a vacation in Tuscany, two families – one Danish, one Dutch – meet and become fast friends. Months later, the free-spirited Dutch family extends an invitation to the more conservative Danish one for a holiday weekend getaway at their countryside home. However, it doesn’t take long before things gradually get out of hand as the joy of reunion is replaced with misunderstandings. The Dutch hospitality quickly turns unnerving for the Danes, and they find themselves increasingly caught in a web of their own politeness in the face of eccentric…or is it sinister…behavior. [IFC]

Watch Trailer

"It’s scary as hell."

— Randy Myers, San Jose Mercury News

"A disturbingly fascinating study of human psychology."

— Carlos Aguilar,

"This is more than a good horror movie. It’s a wickedly inspired and brutally effective one."

— A.A. Dowd, Digital Trends

"Speak No Evil shows viewers the dangers of not speaking up about discomforts for the sake of politeness, and it’s horrifyingly twisted."

— Brittany Witherspoon, Screen Rant

"Thanks to a smart screenplay, excellent, stylish direction, and an outstanding cast from top to bottom, the entire production will unnerve and shake up all watching."

— Bobby LePire, Film Threat

"Speak No Evil is the most cunningly depraved horror film in years, offering a piercing commentary on the ways we accommodate others to the point of self-subjugation."

— Susannah Gruder, IndieWire

"A pitiless social satire, it's one of a few Midnight titles this year that lulls audiences into a false sense of security before snapping shut with the brute efficiency of a steel-jaw trap."

— Isaac Feldberg,

"Danish director Christian Tafdrup's horror movie is one sadistic, slow-burn nightmare of Euro-middle-class mores curdling around the edges, especially once the penny drops."

— David Fear, Rolling Stone

"Gliding inexorably from squirmy to sinister to full-on shocking, this icy satire of middle-class mores, confidently directed by Christian Tafdrup, is utterly fearless in its mission to unsettle."

— Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times

"Strong performances from the four leads, plus the film’s unsettling visuals and crafty use of score, sound and strategic silence make it both a tough watch and impossible to look away from."

— David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

"While the clues of impending horror emerge long before this episode of camaraderie—signaled by Sune Kølster’s unnerving orchestral score from the opening frames—nothing can fully prepare you for the appalling dark places “Speak No Evil” is headed to."

— Carlos Aguilar,

"It’s effective in a way that many horror movies just aren’t anymore. Watching it evokes the feeling of inching closer and closer to the end of a cliff; at any moment, you feel like you might still escape the situation until you eventually reach the point of no return."

— Charles Barfield, The Playlist
