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.
It's blackhearted fun, but eventually the spurt runs dry, and all that's left is a pallid corpse.
Good Neighbors is a darkly comedic thriller with echoes of Shallow Grave and an undercurrent of repressed Canadian rage, and though it comes to an anticlimactic end, it manages a lot with a slow build of unease.
An agreeably sick little movie about a serial killer, a bunch of cats and the uneasy tenants of a Montreal apartment complex.
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.
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.
There's enough creepy tension and nefarious deeds afoot to make for a really suspenseful short film, but even at just 96 minutes, Good Neighbors outstays its welcome.
There's clear evidence that Tierney is maturing as a filmmaker, but he's not there yet, despite having the talents of Baruchel and Hampshire on his side.
A romantic-comedy-cum-serial-killer-movie that bends genre to the point of snapping.
Tierney offers what preparations he can for the offbeat darkness to come, but at least one part of the perfect, triple-crossing crime that plays out is so black you may want to wear shades.
