Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ms. Kirkland - a headstrong veteran performer who is nothing if not game - has proved that she can play this kind of role in her sleep. If only the movie around it were worthy of her efforts."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Plot holes aside, Archaeology offers powerful performances from the female leads, who also happen to be incredibly convincing as mother and daughter."

‑ Wes Greene, Slant Magazine
"Mysterious, suspenseful, engrossing and foreboding. Sally Kirkland gives an unflinchingly raw, tender performance."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
