Tone-Deaf (2019)




Critic Consensus: A messy horror-comedy hybrid that makes poor use of a talented cast, Tone-Deaf aims for social commentary, but tumbles down the generation gap.

She rents an eccentric, ornate country house from Harvey, (Patrick) an old-fashioned widower who's struggling to hide his psychopathic tendencies. Soon two generations collide with terrifying results in this home invasion horror film that is also a darkly comedic critique of the bizarre cultural and political climate that currently exists.

Critic Reviews for Tone-Deaf

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (4)

This is a quirky, cutting story of generation versus generation, refereed by a filmmaker who seems to find both sides fairly ridiculous.

A monotonous horror-comedy.

August 23, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Tone-Deaf goes from 'interesting' to 'messy' too quickly for my tastes.

April 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Too cartoonishly broad to qualify as black comedy, and with no one to root for, this disappointing latest from Richard Bates Jr. isn't funny, suspenseful or outrageous enough to satisfy genre fans.

March 16, 2019 | Full Review…

Bates clearly wanted to make something more than a horror movie but, in his assessment of intergenerational conflict, he is ironically tone deaf.

October 29, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

It's an absolute riot.
