A woman leaves for a quiet weekend in the country after losing her job and imploding her latest dysfunctional relationship. She rents a country house from an old-fashioned widower who’s struggling to hide his psychopathic tendencies. Soon, two generations collide with terrifying results.
‘Tone-Deaf’ has the story of a short film in the guise of a feature. It’s lazy, unoriginal, poorly written, blandly shot, and woefully acted. Any saving graces the film may have possessed - the comedic potential, unique storytelling elements, a respectable cast - are thrown by the wayside in favour of an outdated lesson on generational differences. What we’re left with is a pointless, dull, drawn-out attempt at horror. The only reason it’ll leave you screaming is out of boredom. - Charlie David Page Read Charlie's full article... https://www.maketheswitch.com.au/article/review-tone-deaf-a-horror-in-its-execution-only
Pretty decent dark comedy/horror featuring an outrageous performance by Robert Patrick in probably one of his better roles in a long while and Amanda Crew holds her own at times quite well. There are some interesting scenes that I loved, one being when Crew's character was in a hallucinogenic state and talks with her deceased father, was a fine scene between Crew and Ray Wise. Otherwise, nothing outstanding as a whole and does get preachy in spots (by both Patrick and Crew, and yes I know it's part of the dark comedic elements), but still would recommend this as a rental. **3.0/5**
I know that the things that suck about _Tone-Deaf_ are **the point** of _Tone-Deaf_, but I don't know if that makes them any more acceptable. _Final rating:★★ - Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
