After leaving their company Christmas Party together, David Hargrove and Emily Brandt's impromptu first date takes an unexpected turn when their coworker, Corey, asks them to make a late-night stop at an ATM. What should be a routine transaction turns into a desperate struggle for survival when an unknown man appears outside the vestibule. With the wintry temperatures dipping below freezing, and the morning sunrise still hours away, they have no choice but to play the man's deadly game of cat-and-mouse. -- (C) IFC

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This ATM-set horror film fails to dispense sufficient thrills."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Mr. Brooks capitalizes on antiseptic, fluorescent interiors, while the score, by David Buckley, nicely accents stress points."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"ATM's flawed premise leads to a film that lacks the necessary tension and character development to keep the audience engaged in the story. Furthermore, the characters' unwillingness to act on their situation merely makes for a very frustrating film."
‑ Jeff Beck, We Got This Covered
"Spatially contained thriller ATM squanders the efforts of a solid young cast, fumbling away viewer sympathy via increasingly harebrained scenarios. Audiences will feel as ripped off as they would be by exorbitant user fees at the namesake devices."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"It would probably work better as a parody. The laughs are already built-in."
‑ Kurt Loder, Reason Online
"None of it builds to anything or engenders any real suspense."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Screenwriter Chris Sparling worked in confined spaces to far better effect before with the minimalist Ryan Reynolds thriller"Buried." He must have used his best ideas there."
‑ Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times
"[E]ven at the script stage, someone ought to have noticed how many holes were present in this story."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"... resorts to incoherent contrivances involving characters who lack basic common sense."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"...a vaguely interesting idea for a scary movie made dull and derivative"
‑ Bill Gibron,
"Not much about the movie makes sense, though there are occasional schlocky thrills."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"While "ATM" does offer a few jolts, we're paired with bland characters and an underrealized premise."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"An increasingly ludicrous thriller..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A new thriller with three talented actors nonetheless caught in an ineffective film that stretches to meet its running time and then ends with a final act that destroys suspension of disbelief."
‑ Brian Tallerico,
"Even by the most lenient of genre standards, the behavior of the characters in David Brooks's ATM is ludicrous enough to make anyone grind his or her teeth in frustration."
‑ Alison Willmore, Movieline
