“A true midnight movie, Sound of Violence plays out a resonantly deranged concept with unapologetic gore and a sensational style that aches to overwhelm its audience. Yet, even with his most imaginative slaughter sequences, [director Alex] Noyer aims for more than shock value. His script begs us not only to be horrified but also understand the motives of its monster. [Jasmin Savoy] Brown strums Alexis to life with wide-eyed vulnerability, an invite into her head that we cannot refuse. Her instrument is the twist of her lips, which can spark compassion, concern, and terror, depending on how that smile takes shape. [Lili] Simmons is her skillful partner, playing a duet of passion and pain that is exquisite and strange. Together, they stride into a final sequence that is unnerving, gruesome, and bizarrely bittersweet. Like the catchy song caught in your head long after a concert’s ended, Sound of Violence will stick with you.” – Kristy Puchko, RogerEbert.com
