Watch Trailer

"A well-etched story on dread overload."

— Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter

"90 minutes of psychologically punishing, vise-like tension, but also a sharp and canny report on human behavior."

— Jordan Hoffman, The Messenger

"A chillingly spot-on depiction of how, in dank rooms filled with belligerent drunks, the line between a jolly time and a dangerous one is treacherously thin."

— Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post

"The most brilliant aspect of the script, penned jointly by Green and Oscar Redding, is its flair with sketching out the ups and downs of Hanna and Liv’s friendship."

— Tomris Laffly, TheWrap

"Green continues to establish herself as an insightful chronicler of the minor yet devastating terrors of violent masculinity that many women endure everywhere they go."

— Marya E. Gates,

"As the horrors of The Royal Hotel unfold, the film shifts from a terse thriller into a full-on horror, assisted by appropriately and effectively eerie cinematography from Michael Latham."

— Barry Levitt, Slashfilm

"Garner and co-star Jessica Henwick navigate the picture’s mixture of drama, suspense and horror superbly, leaving the audience fearful that this slow-burn powder keg will eventually go off."

— Tim Grierson, Screen Daily

"Laughter and wails are almost interchangeable. That tension makes the film excruciating but exciting; like the characters, the viewer has to try to suss out what is a danger and what is just a good time."

— Esther Zuckerman, Vanity Fair

"Green gets us looking for danger in every scene — and we usually find it. She’s taken us here, to this extremely specific place, to sharpen our awareness of the tiniest red flags that flap around the globe."

— Amy Nicholson, Variety
