Scare Me

Critics Consensus

Smart, well-acted, and suitably chilling, Scare Me uses its familiar horror setting as the backdrop for a fresh deconstruction of standard genre ingredients.

  • Just as often, it makes the movie itself feel like a single anthology episode overstaying its welcome.

  • While there are lapses, an overindulgence here and there, Ruben mostly keeps his canny debut feature afloat and us entertained, if not exactly scared ...

  • Coming from the mouths and minds of Cash and Ruben, it's a full-blown acting showcase.

  • The best thing about "Scare Me" is that, for all of its entertaining qualities and acute cuts at white male fragility, this is one excellent guide to writing and filming good horror.

  • Ruben has forged himself an actors' showcase. He and Cash are marvelous mimics.

Audience Reviews for Scare Me

  • 3d ago
    Given "Scare Me" takes place mostly in a small winter cabin, the movie rests squarely on the shoulders of a very small cast. Aya Cash, a recent standout of Amazon's "The Boys" season 2, is excellent in this tight, compact thriller about two authors (one successful, one struggling) trying to scare each other with impromptu stories. The pizza delivery guy Chris Redd injects welcome humor and energy as he gets roped into the "rap battle" (with scary stories instead of rap). Decently entertaining but would make a better play on Broadway.
