Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This stunningly derivative Latin ghost chiller might have had audiences Jackson Pollocking their underwear 10 years ago. Now (unless you've spent the past decade down a well), only the sheer poverty of ideas is terrifying."
‑ Jonathan Crocker, Time Out
"So what bit of this stylishly made, relentlessly silly horror film is "based on real events", exactly?"
‑ Xan Brooks, Guardian
"A standard shudder picture, with an impressive, chilling apparition."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"In terms of mood, it is masterful, however, the film falls down slightly due to a surfeit of subplots."
‑ Amber Wilkinson, Eye for Film
"It's all too familiar for its own good, and isn't helped by the screenplay's meandering subplots about the twin sisters' past and their loves in the present."
‑ Jamie Russell,
"Mexico's first ghost story in decades is slick and well-crafted, but fails to distinguish itself or find its way to a satisfying ending."
‑ Anton Bitel, Film4
"Supernatural thriller elements finally combine with an old Mexican folk legend."
‑ David Gritten, Daily Telegraph
"Solid performances and a well-manifested sense of the supernatural makes KM 31 a journey worth taking."
‑ Rob Daniel, Sky Movies
