Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Silver Bullets" neither pleases the eye nor stimulates the mind."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"To elicit the film's flayed sensibility, Swanberg has developed a flagrantly expressive camera style that virtually gashes the screen with intense contrasts, bright lights, and screaming colors."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"A significant step forward for Joe Swanberg, a filmmaker best known for chronicling the romantic misadventures of futon-owning twentysomethings."
‑ Alison Willmore, AV Club
"Mumblecore movement explores horror genre, Joe Swanberg-style!"
‑ Kam Williams, NewsBlaze
"Swanberg ignores tired supernatural scare-flick trappings and locates terror in the shadowy, passive-aggressive process of making, and watching, movies."
‑ Mark Holcomb, Village Voice
"It's certainly autobiographical, and it's okay to accept that, but at the same time, it's a mistake to decide that that's the whole show."
‑ Jaime N. Christley, Slant Magazine
