Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"By the time The Dark Hours starts to get good, it's more than midway into the movie."
‑ Linda Barnard, Toronto Star
"A family-in-peril psychodrama that teeters on the edge of being a quality indie exercise."
‑ Derek Elley, Variety
"Speeds through its scant 80-minute running time with no muss, no fuss, and a surprisingly watchable demeanor."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Paul Fox takes the cake and falls flat into it with one of the limpest stalker terrors to ever frustrate an audience."
‑ Erik Childress,
"The Dark Hours is a remarkably assured homage to psychological horror films from the sixties and seventies."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"A cold and moody psychodrama poised frustratingly on the border between novel and banal."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"worth tracking down"
‑ Christopher Null,
"A rewarding experience."
‑ Jeremy Mathews, Film Threat
"Proves as cliche-ridden as its title."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"[A] taut '70s throwback thriller."
‑ Peter L'Official, Village Voice
"The real terror lies in imagining just what type of carnage the unhinged Harlan could unleash with that woodchopper of his."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
