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. - Joel Kalkopf Read Joel's full article... https://www.maketheswitch.com.au/article/review-shiva-baby-a-comedy-of-discomfort

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

A little light, though <em>'Shiva Baby'</em> 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.

Full review: <a>https://www.tinakakadelis.com/beyond-the-cinerama-dome/2021/12/28/portrait-of-a-woman-having-a-nervous-breakdown-shiva-baby-review<a> Horror is no longer just slasher movies with men in masks lurking around corners; it is now encompassing more everyday, real-life horrors. Even the terror of running into your ex-girlfriend and current sugar daddy at a shiva. That’s the general plot of Emma Seligman’s impressive debut, _Shiva Baby_. The movie begins with college senior Danielle (Rachel Sennott) waking up in her sugar daddy Max’s (Danny Deferrari) apartment. She’s running late to a shiva (we don’t ever find out who died) where she meets her parents (Fred Melamed and Polly Draper). Among the other guests are her ex-girlfriend Maya (Molly Gordon), Max, Max’s wife (Dianna Agron), and their infant child. Danielle sees all of these people in the same room, and her anxiety skyrockets. The movie takes place over the course of about two fictional hours, and the action occurs almost entirely in one home. It is a brisk 78 minutes, and that’s a perfect runtime. Another moment of this familial, heart-racing anxiety would have been too much for the audience to handle.
