Reviews:

Extracurricular is a fittingly mean-spirited little movie that refuses to soften the edges of its youthful killers and instead doubles down on their particular brand of nihilism. They’re never portrayed as victims, but their predicament grows increasingly engaging as their latest kill goes sideways in brutal and bloody ways.” Film School Rejects

” …this was a real treat for me. And most of that comes down to the incredible performances from the four leads. Each brings something entirely unique to the table, and you really end up empathizing with each of them, despite knowing they are unrepentant irredeemable serial killers.” Nightmarish Conjurings

Extracurricular is a film that is both for and about people who watch slasher films just to cheer for the killer […] the film builds up to a much darker and blood soaked ending that will probably leave a bad taste for anyone who isn’t already a complete sociopath.” Sean Kelly on Movies

” …has no narrative flow and looks like a series of decent action scenes connected by pointless dialogue; all of it leading to a conclusion that makes the concept of nonsense seem coherent. Without giving too much away, Extracurricular’s ending is a dangerous one in today’s political climate, and not in a provocative way.” Wylie Writes
