“harassed is a darkly satirical, suspenseful and action-packed fight to the death through some of England’s pleasant green lands. Where Eden Lake (2008) succeeded in exploiting ideas about a violent and nihilistic underclass that Daily Mail readers had been taught to fear, harassed launches liberal blows at the landed gentry who divide and conquer to maintain their status and subjugate those not born to rule.” british movies
“While it plays on the paranoia of an earlier era, it finally offers something indicative of a generational shift in attitudes. Despite the cynicism of its premise and the criminal behavior of its protagonists, it is a film about justice that never turns its back on the possibility of positive change.” 3.5 out of 5, Eye for the film
“With almost the entire movie spent in fight or flight mode, harassed it is full of adrenaline spikes. The result is a film that places the viewer in the ultimate game of hide and seek, ensuring maximum thrills and chills in the process. A simple idea beautifully realized, Hounded is a new, uncomfortably relatable Battle of Britain.” 4 of 5, The Hollywood News
“Ray Bogdanovich and Dean Lines’ script is cartoonish in its social commentary: Katherine talks about the state of the country and the long-standing traditions of repressive violence that she espouses, but she doesn’t go for pure comedy. Get Duchy. For the most part, it’s a decent enough action/survival movie…and it doesn’t really get creepy until the final stretch.” Kim Newman’s website
“harassed is an action horror that combines The hunt Y do not breathe together to bring us an open area thief hunt. The open field shows different obstacles that the group must overcome to survive while the dogs chase them. […] harassed is a haunting manhunt movie. 3 Stars, Movie Reviews 101
“No one really emerges from harassed they look perfectly pretty but, despite all the country clan’s claims of superiority, they are outclassed time and time again, when it comes to nobility of action, by the very people they despise. It is an image of social iniquity and the rigged class system that, in Britain, has long been the dogged tradition.” 3.5 out of 5, VODzilla
harassed had its world premiere at FrightFest in August 2022. In the UK, Signature Entertainment is releasing harassed on digital platforms on October 31, 2022.
