Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's a horrifying meditation on the unbreakable union of mother and child."
‑ Michael Ordoņa, Los Angeles Times
"Creepy, yes, but what's the point of all of this bratty, poignance-free bloodletting?"
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Village Voice
"It focuses on characters rather than the color red, which is why it manages to surpass many of its more prominent cinematic competitors and qualify as one of the few true must-see horror movies of 2009."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, Sci Fi Wire
"It's hard to say who's the real monster here: Sure, the ghoulish Grace is some kind of vampire-zombie something ... but in Solet's movie (s)mother love comes in all shades of crazy."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Horror Hacker
"Introduces Grace writer/director Paul Solet as a new master of horror."
‑ Steve Ramos, Boxoffice Magazine
"Keeps you on the edge of your seat, or perhaps the edge of fleeing the theater."
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"Solet's wicked slice of Suburban Gothic horror taps into some of humankind's most potent iconography and exploits that imagery mercilessly."
‑ Simon Foster,
"you may never look at a baby sound monitor the same way."
‑ Norm Schrager,
""Grace" isn't really a horror movie, but it's gruesome and unsettling. The story could easily have been turned into low-budget genre trash; but first-time feature director Paul Solet maintains iron control of the wild material. Clearly, this is a guy to k"
‑ Kurt Loder, MTV
"A combination splatter flick and demon child extravaganza that succeeds in bloody special effects but fails to become an actual movie."
‑ Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
"Paul Solet's gyno-horror flick is certainly twisted but only slightly unnerving; the movie is about as gripping as one might expect given that its infant monster is both mute and cradle-bound."
‑ S. James Snyder, Time Out New York
"Grace is just a stretched thin short film, as the mother-in-law with the unsettling maternal issues, the corrupt doctor, and the lesbian midwife material don't fit in."
‑ Adam Lippe,
"...a love-it-or-hate-it proposition..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"The sickest and most disturbing movie you'll see this year, extremely effective on every level without cowtowing to the overused formulas that have become standard in modern horror."
‑ Edward Douglas,
"Grimaces its way through 85 long, low-key minutes just to marvel again and again that, gosh, mommies really love their babies."
‑ Bryant Frazer, Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
