Critic Reviews of "The King Is Dead"Onya MagazineOctober 17, 2013
The screenplay comes with a wealth of comical gags and observations about suburban life that many audiences should identify with.The AristocratSeptember 27, 2012
If this film had a more propulsive plot, veered into Straw Dogs territory and retained its dark laughs, I imagine we would be talking about an Australian classic.ABC Radio (Australia)July 24, 2012
The King is Dead!, while not as brilliant as Bad Boy Bubby or Alexandra's Project, shares with those films a unique and perverse vision of Australian suburbia ... De Heer's always bold, and here he's bold again. The Independent King is certainly not dead.QuickflixJuly 16, 2012
The King is Dead has some great comic asides, and the finale paints Max and Therese into a genuinely dangerous and entertaining corner.CrikeyJuly 16, 2012
The King is Dead! is a deliciously dark genre mash-up, coy and explorative but tight and insular, sprayed with wry laughs and a genuinely foreboding undertone.3AWJuly 13, 2012
Black comedies rarely come as carefully measured or as full-blooded as this marvellously engaging lark, which is essentially a revenge fantasy for anyone who has ever suffered the prolonged trauma of living with a bad neighbour.
