Come to Daddy | Ratings & Reviews

"It’s a wonderfully grotty film, definitely not for the faint of heart. But get on Timpson’s skewiff wavelength and it really is a blast."


"Timpson’s love of genre also plays a familiar tune, and it’s his ability to surprise – as well as gross out – his audience that makes Come to Daddy an agreeably stomach-churning pleasure."

New Zealand ListenerNew Zealand Listener

"Every great film has a love-story somewhere near its heart, propelling it forward and giving our heroes and villains an emotional payload worth fighting for. The love story in Come To Daddy is clearly visible, early and often."


""Come to Daddy..." does deliver a good, sick twist; and sometimes that's enough."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Enjoyable performances... hold the film to its redemptive goals, even as it descends into what can only be described as bloody bedlam."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Unfortunately, the movie is far more effective in its first half than its second, which degenerates into cheap shocks, absurd plot contrivances and vulgarism for its own sake."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"[Wood] has to do a lot of selling here, but I bought most of it."

"Funny and F'ed in the head with a cartoonish sense of humour that borders on magical realism, Come to Daddy is a strange brew, but it's a good one."


"The blend of tired jokes and body horror here seems entombed in amber, as every lacerated scalp, loudly broken limb, and use of the C-word makes it feel that much less original."


"A gory hilarious father-son reunion saga with a surprising degree of confidence in the silly-strange nature of the material."


"My favorite horror offering of the year so far. It’s smart, uncompromising, inventive and just downright hilarious."
