Puts enough of a new spin on old nightmares to stake a claim all its own.
Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
Cool, creepy stuff that should please horror nuts and relative scaredy-cats in equal measure.
David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
...the movie's appealing, affable atmosphere [is] perpetuated by both the first-person presentation and the personable nature of the two central characters.
Todd Gilchrist, GeekNation
A step in the right direction for the burgeoning filmmaking style that still needs to figure out how to tell stories as inventive as its techniques, or at least find ways not to completely discombobulate viewers with the ones they're telling now.
John Gholson, Movies.com
An authentic approach to outrageous material doesn't just sell the film as actual found footage, it also shows remarkable intuition by first-timers Lee and Prouse.
Fred Topel, CraveOnline
It's exciting, expertly done and I don't want to tell you any more because half the fun is in the surprise.
Kristal Cooper, We Got This Covered
Afflicted is a low-budget, delightfully novel twist on two otherwise way over-saturated genres.
Drew McWeeny, HitFix
Afflicted is one of those small films that never feels small, and it serves as a real announcement for the talents of Derek Lee and Clif Prowse as well as all of their gifted collaborators.
