Let me just start by saying (as many people have been saying) do not trust the trailer for this film, which will mis-lead you into thinking this film is a comedy, although it does have many comic moments, this film is a drama with light hearted scenes throughout.
What I loved about this film is its ability to test how you look at a story, in Shakespearian essence you can see a story from two perspectives the tragic or the comic, I always found myself being able to find the comedy in every situation, but when I watched the Vicious Kind, I found it very dark and utterly compelling.
I'm not going to go into detail about the plot, but the whole cast is solid, especially Adam Scott, who gives a fantastically complex performance which frustrates and yet compels you constantly. Compared to the vast amount of indie films out there, the Vicious Kind has just shot up to the top of my list, sitting nicely with Juno.

HASH(0x92db02b8) out of 5 stars Great performances, decent DVD 19 Feb. 2010
By Steve Kuehl - Published on
Format: DVD
Another indie that flew under the radar, but without a doubt deserves a watch. The family angst story of two brothers interested in the same woman aggravated by bad dad relations sounds old, but the acting carries through very believably and the DVD quality turned out solid.

The Connecticut locations add a relevant blandness to these characters' dysfunctional relationships and mommy/daddy issues, but Adam Scott shines through in what I would consider his break-out performance (he got some kudos for the lame film August, and usually most recognized as being that bad brother in Step Brothers). Brittany Snow was given some notice for her bold and slightly forward role here, but I think she broke that barrier with On the Doll. I like what everyone showed here, so even though it gets slow a few times and does not explain all of the character outbursts, it should keep the discerning indie viewer entertained.

The picture and sound quality are adequate and showed no real shortcomings. The supplements include:
* Behind the scenes, 16:19 minutes. Director interviews spliced with too much clip footage, but he gives a thorough background on creation and actor support in making this film.
* Deleted scenes, 5 totaling 6:30 minutes. Four of them have optional commentary. Glad they were cut.
* Extended scenes, 5 totaling 16 minutes. Worth the watch if you REALLY liked the acting.
* Two commentaries, one with director solo and one with him and Scott.

English and Spanish subs, 5.1 English only.

HASH(0x92db0318) out of 5 stars Superb acting really carry this story... 15 Feb. 2010
By Stuart Milton - Published on
Format: DVD
I watched this more for J.K Simmons who plays the Father. He is superb as always but it's Adam Scott and Brittany Snow who really carry this picture. I was pretty blown away by Adam Scott in this picture. A superb performance, this guy has to be seen more. Not to give too much away I was expecting this to be more twisted than it actually turned out to be. But if you appreciate acting this is a must see. Only giving it Four as it did feel like it was plodding in places........over all well worth seeing.

HASH(0x92db0750) out of 5 stars Great acting, directing 6 Jan. 2013
By AB - Published on
Format: DVD
Impressive performances by Adam Scott, Brittany Snow, and JK Simmons, and Alex Frost, who seems not to have been in much else, was good in his less nuanced role. I particularly liked seeing Scott and Simmons in dramatic roles, since I have previously only seen them in comedies.

Complex subject. At times I definitely questioned the message about women, but by the end of the movie, it's clear that all of these "betrayers" are equally flawed. Both the acting and great directing made for a movie that struck me as emotionally deep, and also intellectually stimulating. Somewhat depressing yes, but I enjoyed it and didn't come away feeling depressed. Just emotionally moved to a certain degree, and impressed by the acting and directing.

HASH(0x92db0b1c) out of 5 stars Sadly Seductive 18 Aug. 2013
By Rachel Farfsing - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This movie is easily looked over, but is one that packs a solid punch. Adam Scott, who is now mostly known for comedic roles, plays a grumpy insomniac (Caleb) who is not over a rough break-up. His little brother (Alex) comes to town for Thanksgiving and brings along his girlfriend (Emma). They seem like an odd couple because Alex is a small town, nice guy and Emma is more punk rock. Caleb slowly becomes interested in Emma because she looks exactly like the girlfriend who left him. This movie is great because of the tension between all of the characters, and the complexity of how their lives intertwine in a short time.
HASH(0x92db0ac8) out of 5 stars Hooray for Dysfunction 13 Dec. 2011
By Eric Sanber - Published on
Format: DVD
Who knows? Maybe some movie viewers need to see really screwed up people to realize there are those out there worse off than themselves.

Here's the scoop. Caleb is way down over a break-up with his girl. He needs to pick his younger brother, Peter, and Peter's girlfriend up from the train station and get them to dad's house for Thanksgiving. He can't join them because he's on the outs with dad. Somehow he and Pete's girl, Emma, develop a fascination for one another and things get sticky.

This is a way cool indy flick. It's an interesting situation peppered with interesting characters. Caleb is so strung out over his break-up he vacillates between being incredibly rude and then apologizing for being incredibly rude. His brother Peter is a babe in the woods. He's a virgin and thinks he loves Emma. Emma likes him well enough but is already hiding things from him and is really horny over Caleb. Dad is more than a bit on the crude side and might not be on the level with his boys on why mom left. The pot begins to boil.

This is all writing and acting. It's set in Norfolk West Virginia and the winter setting sets a feeling of isolation and loneliness experienced by the four main characters. Caleb gets the most screen time and his behavior helps keep things on edge because the viewer simply does not know what he'll do next. Adam Scott does a fine job as Caleb. He's 180 degrees from his character in "Parks and Recreation." J.K. Simmons is always good. This is the first starring roles I've seen for Brittany Snow and Alex Frost. Both do a stand-up job. Vittorio Brahm plays the somewhat challenged J.T., Caleb's work buddy. He doesn't get a lot of screen time but he's a memorable character. I'm not familiar with the director Krieger's previous works but he has two movies in the works and I'd be really interested to see what he's up to.

The production values are good enough to make this work. Nothing gets in the way. Everyone, on both sides of the camera, does a fine job. If you like indy films about screwed up ( but likeable) people this is a must see.
