Movie Reviews

Movie Views - 9/10 by Ryan CracknellSticks to the familiar but he does it in such a way that it's still extremely creepy, a little bit campy and, at times, quite a lot of fun.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger EbertThis is a very good haunted house film. It milks our frustration deliciously.
Washington Post - 8/10 by John DeForeFeels retro in all the right ways; it's a bump-in-the-night tale that, if not for the occasional glimpse of a cellphone or reference to Adderall, could have been told decades ago.
ReelViews - 8/10 by James BerardinelliThe movie is deliciously creepy even if it does exhibit some issues that keep it from being a top-notch example of "things that go bump in the night" horror.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 8/10 by Matthew HaysThis is still a seriously entertaining horror movie, one that will please newcomers as well as fans of the original oddity. But by the end of the film, I was wishing the filmmakers had left us wondering about precisely who and what these critters were just a little bit longer.
New York Post - 8/10 by Kyle SmithHarks back to a 1960s idea of what a horror film should be.
Austin Chronicle - 8/10 by Marc SavlovThe fact that Troy Nixey's debut feature is one creepyass frightmare is what matters, and boy, does he put the nail in that metaphorical coffin the first time out. It's not perfect, but it's awfully close.
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN) - 8/10 by John BeifussThe husband's hostility seems to encourage disaster, and the depiction of the couple's relationship offers something of a preview of what Stanley Kubrick would do with Jack Nicholson and Shelley Duvall in the early part of 'The Shining.'
The A.V. Club - 7/10 by Scott TobiasAbsent any qualities beyond the surface, like the history and politics that trouble Del Toro's best films, Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark is little better than a half-decent scare machine.
IndieWire - 7/10 by Eric KohnLargely a cut-and-paste affair, although useful for that very reason; it provides a glaring reminder that scary movies have evolved, both in terms of style and expectations, but the evolution isn't worth the effort.
