Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"ambition alone can't make a good film, and if those elements are poorly put together and not fully realized, it can become less than the sum of its already tired parts"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Playback posits cinema as a conduit for Satanic evil, but has nothing to say about the act of watching, except that its uniform horridness functions as an unintentional commentary on enduring pitiful horror-movie conventions."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"Playback takes a potentially intriguing concept and punctuates it with extreme gore rather than thrilling suspense."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Paste Magazine
"Nickels misses the mark with this design of voyeurism and possession, unable to launch his idea with an inspiring sense of madness or even basic boogeyman clarity."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"On the bright side, the movie gets less irritating with each passing murder."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
