Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Plenty of stringy wind-swept hair and shapeless woolly jumpers abound, and at least there's picturesque scenery for a slow afternoon's viewing."
‑ Luke Goodsell, Empire Magazine Australasia
"Demi Moore is used to the odd supernatural love story (Ghost, 1990) and she works hard at Rachel, but the screenplay just isn't up to the genre. It's not super, it's not that natural and it's not very thrilling ... the end result is not even half right."
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Cinematic Sominex that feels like it was tailor-made for immediate simultaneous broadcast on the Lifetime Channel and the Oxygen Network."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
"More televisual than cinematic, Half Light is too chocolate boxy and clean to be completely convincing, but it's a diverting enough story."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"There's a pleasingly Hitchcockian feel to this entertainingly old-fashioned thriller and writer-director Craig Rosenberg pulls off several impressive twists so that you're never quite sure just where the story's going."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"if you strip away all the references to other films, and all the play on genres, what remains is a film without its own soul, as insubstantial, and as difficult to credit, as a spectre half-glimpsed through the Scottish mist."
‑ Anton Bitel, musicOMH.com
"This moody thriller is fairly strong on gothic creepiness, but not so good with actual thrills."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
