Featuring a knockout performance by Adam Scott, The Vicious Kind upends the heavily tread dysfunctional family drama in ways that are unique, surprising and memorable.

Variety
Before it bogs down in one too many moments of cathartic reckoning, The Vicious Kind is an unpredictable, off-kilter and scabrously funny piece of work.

Reveals writer-director Lee Toland Krieger as a talent worth watching.

At times, hard to stomach. Full of relatively good people doing horrible things to each other, the film never lets up, leaving me with a pessimistic and hopeless view of humanity.
