Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ever Since the World Ended is a faux documentary with a twist, a rudimentary yet fascinating record of remembrance and reconstruction."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"It's an intriguing idea, ingeniously done (on a scant budget), but you have to swallow a good many implausibilities too, along with some variable improv."
‑ , Time Out
"A science-fiction tale shares a deep fascination with the logistical and psychological dilemmas arising from society's breakdown."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"The performances in the film are so remarkable it's easy to ignore the implausibilities that surface. But even as its self-aware approximation of the doc format startles, Ever Since the World Ended lacks vigor."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Village Voice
"As gorgeous visually as it is powerful emotionally."
‑ David Cornelius, eFilmCritic.com
"Wow! The acting is fantastic. I was mesmerized by these performances. Strong direction as well. However, I don't think they add up well in the format of feature length film."
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
"Continually tickles the mind while leaving a heavy lump in the chest, establishing and sustaining a unique low-key tone of mystery and dread."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"The mockumentary conceit gives a vivid immediacy to the material, and the PAL digital video cinematography is often surprisingly lyrical."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It's The Blair Witch Project with brains and a social conscience."
‑ Susan Green, Boxoffice Magazine
