The Abduction Of Zack Butterfield
Laemmle Theatres and Thunder Hill are pleased to present The Abduction of Zack Butterfield, a new indie psychological thriller in which a beautiful but disturbed young woman returns from combat as an American mercenary in Iraq and abducts a 14-year-old New York boy, holding him prisoner in her isolated country home as a bizarre romantic relationship develops.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Subscribing to the philosophy that creepy equals interesting, the film contains barely a moment that isn't flat-footed, ludicrous or both."
‑ Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
"Woefully amateurish."
‑ Ronnie Scheib, Variety
"Kidnapping thriller isn't quite "so bad, it's good," more like "so bad, it's okay.""
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
"If Ed Wood had directed "The Silence of the Lambs," it might have been as unin tentionally hilarious as the goofball would-be thriller "The Abduction of Zack Butterfield.""
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"The script is often ludicrous (gratuitous digs at feminism; muddled commentary on war and the military), the sets look like sets, and the acting -- aside from Helsham and Plunkett -- doesn't even rise to the level of student films."
‑ Ernest Hardy, Village Voice
"A cringingly awkward tale of sexual predation and female lunacy."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"A terrible, muddled and ultimately yawning psychosexual kidnap drama. So inept and risible that it makes the case there should be some sort of creative gatekeeper, even for indie cinematic efforts."
‑ Brent Simon,
