Movie Reviews:

  • SWITCH.: There isn’t much we haven’t seen before, but Seligman has put together a delightful film that is sure to please. This horror-like, anxiety-inducing, claustrophobic and suffocating comedy is just that – a comedy. While it may play out like a psychological thriller at times, ‘Shiva Baby’ is a witty and fun film that may lack originality, but has plenty of energy and memorable moments that make for an all together confident debut.

  • SpotaMovie.com: Shiva Baby is not your typical comedy, and we are glad of it because this experiment delivers its purpose. Anxiety, panic attacks, a perfect match of soundtracks and scenes, the awkward moments to meet people you barely know and engage in embarrassing conversations are some ingredients that will let you laugh and perceive that claustrophobic mood our protagonist Danielle will definitely experience. But there is much more to enjoy because the puzzle of this comedy are very well put together. Find out more at SpotaMovie.com
  • r96sk: A little light, though ‘Shiva Baby’ is a good watch.

    It’s cool to see the story expanded from the 2018 short, with additional depth added to the main character – as well as seeing a couple of new additions, of course. Rachel Sennott reprises the lead role and puts in a very solid performance.

    I wanted a bit more from it in terms of content, as I was pleased to see the credits when the already brief run time (78mins) ticked over – it drags out the story a tad. No big deal though, it’s still watchable for sure.
