    Good Neighbors is a film of acquired taste. If one is willing to accept humor in a movie about a serial killer, if one likes a thriller than emphasizes character over thrills, if one is susceptible to a cast of characters that includes three cats, then the movie has found its very selective target audience. show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    Working from a 1982 novel set in Quebec City, director-writer Jacob Tierney provides enough thrills and surprises, even a little satire, to keep viewers' attention. show more

    It's his film's metamorphosis into something else -- something every bit as dark, and every bit as intriguing -- that will keep viewers planted in their seats, and, at times, perched on the edges of them. show more

    Rex Reed New York Observer

    Good Neighbors is a hotbed of twisted ideas with a straightforward yet novel approach to the Gothic horror in the hearts of mistakenly everyday people. Stressful and disconcerting but highly recommended, it gave me nightmares. show more

    Good Neighbors basically runs on the assumption that Montreal is the last place you would ever want to live. show more

    Pam Grady Boxoffice Magazine

    Good Neighbors' greatest strength is that even when the plot becomes too obvious and the thriller aspects fall apart, it can always wrestle a laugh out of you. show more

    It's blackhearted fun, but eventually the spurt runs dry, and all that's left is a pallid corpse. show more

    Gary Goldstein Los Angeles Times

    Quirky, creepy and increasingly involving, the Montreal-set thriller Good Neighbors throws a trio of offbeat apartment dwellers together under one shaky roof as a serial killer wreaks havoc around town. show more

    Jeannette Catsoulis The New York Times

    Swerving from bland to brutal, endearingly coy to shockingly explicit, the Canadian import Good Neighbors finds pitch-black comedy among white-bread lives. show more

    Village Voice

    A murder close to home freaks Louise out, but it's a pointed cat poisoning that sends her, and Good Neighbors, over the edge. Tierney offers what preparations he can for the offbeat darkness to come - faint organ chords and a focus on his character's idiosyncrasies build a sense of dread - but at least one part of the perfect, triple-crossing crime that plays out is so black you may want to wear shades. show more
