Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Mark Tonderai's debut makes for a smart calling card but relies on one tension-destroying cliché too many and offers too few thrills to satisfy the hardened horror buff."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"For all of the convention and familiarity that Hush exhibits in the early going, it does a fine job of throwing a few wrenches into a generally predictable premise."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"Despite, or maybe because of, its mundane setting this bleak and disturbing thriller succeeds in ratcheting up the tension."
‑ Philip Wilding, Empire Magazine
"There's a nice twist or two in Hush and it's reasonably well-made but it feels like a TV movie or, worse, an extended TV episode of an anthology series."
‑ Brian Tallerico, HollywoodChicago.com
"The label slapped on the side of Mark Tonderai's low-budget horror movie has absolutely no bearing on the silly contents."
‑ James Christopher, Times [UK]
"Hush proves you don't need a Jason, Freddy or Michael to create a nasty little horror showcase."
‑ Christian Toto, What Would Toto Watch?
"Tonderai makes good use of soulless motorway catering venues - all white strip lighting and hunched zombie drivers - but overkills his tale with a succession of improbabilities."
‑ Victor Olliver, Teletext
