The Humans

The Humans ★★★

Stephen Karam’s screen adaptation of his own Tony award-winning play, ‘The Humans,’ is a horror movie for those who are afraid of family gatherings. While the performances keep the picture interesting - Jane Houdyshell is particularly impressive - the film never quite manages to transcend the clichés of a theatrical family dinner drama. Mildly satisfying, but not quite as good as it could have been.
