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.

An agreeably sick little movie about a serial killer, a bunch of cats and the uneasy tenants of a Montreal apartment complex.

The film is superbly crafted, with veteran cinematographer Guy Dufaux composing a coherent palette of dark, rich interiors.

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

Alison Willmore

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.

Not a crackerjack thriller by any means, and I'm not sure it means to be: It's a dark comedy about people who do horrible things.

Alonso Duralde

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.

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.

Good Neighbors ends up being a rather unremarkable dramatic thriller that squanders any potential for greatness it had with a bland and uninspired finale.
