  • After three roommates finally choose a new roommate they think they can live with, they find him dead on the floor with a suitcase full of cash. While trying to remove the body and extricate themselves from the situation, they wade hip-deep into a world of drugs, greed and madness. A delightfully circuitous, nailbiting, and unpretentious noir, with the murder as a MacGuffin--director Boyle, who gained more acclaim across the Atlantic with follow-up TRAINSPOTTING, is more interested in the gradual psychological disintegration of the roommates.

  • Critic Reviews
    "...One of the most perverse sleepers since the Coen Brothers' BLOOD SIMPLE debut in 1984..." -- 3 out of 4 stars
    USA Today

    "...Glittering, deadpan, nihilistic....Weirdly thrilling..."
    Entertainment Weekly

    "...A tar-black comedy that zings along on a wave of visual and scripting inventiveness....[The] playing and casting are strong down the line..."

    "...Boyle serves up a blackhearted sangfroid buzz..."

    "...The whole thing is a hypnotic blend of mirth and malice..."
    Rolling Stone

    "...Mr. Boyle's nasty ingenuity recalls the playful early days of the Coen brothers....As a tale of death and expediency, SHALLOW GRAVE also invites comparison to Alfred Hitchcock..."
    New York Times
