About the Movie
Merle’s life begins to splinter when Sinaloa (Sophie Reid), the half-sister she never knew existed, appears on her doorstep in Texas. Initially distrustful of this enigmatic woman, a bond quickly forms between the two sisters. As Merle (Allison Tolman) allows Sinaloa into her life, Sinaloa reveals a quiet fury to Merle through her music. Sinaloa’s fierce attachment places Merle’s career aspirations, her relationship to her mother, and even her impending marriage in jeopardy. Merle fights to keep her world together while Sinaloa’s increasingly intense and erratic behavior threatens to erupt into something much darker.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Though its slow-burn narrative doesn't pay off in a wholly satisfying manner, this offbeat nail-biter should nonetheless be welcomed by those eager for something off the beaten genre path.
Fresh: Beneath its quiet surface, the Austin, Texas-set drama "Barracuda" thrums with menace and mystery from first moment to last.
Fresh: [An] absorbing, mostly low-key thriller, which builds atmosphere, psychological texture, an ingrained sense of place and a needling undercurrent of dread.
Fresh: A sometimes-riveting 'take' on the unexpected uninvited guest plot-line, grounded to the earth by the phenomenal performances of Allison Tolman and Sophie Reid.
this is a very, very good movie
this was the most pleasant surprise. solid, original story, great actors. you're a little uneasy from the start and it doesn't ever let up. not at all what i expected.
Long...Boring & 99o/o Uneventful!!!
