Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
MMMM emphasizes the social and economic discrepancies between Martha's then and now, and alludes to Lucy's guilt about not being there for her younger sister in the past.Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, 03.18.2014
In quiet, intimate ways, it is one of the most startling, haunting films you'll see all year.Christy Lemire, Associated Press, 03.18.2014
The horror aesthetic of B-movie producer Val Lewton -- that the unseen is more frightening than the seen -- is carried to a merciless extreme in this unnerving debut feature by writer-director Sean Durkin.J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 11.03.2011
Durkin depicts a horror that some among us actually live, where the search for family leads to something familiar and dangerous.Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, 11.04.2011
