Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Matches narrative incoherence with one of the most over-the-top portentous scores in horror-cinema history."
‑ Nick Schager, Village Voice
"A fun and gory little spooky tale flaws and all."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"What the production aims to pull off with the picture in the early going isn't where the movie ends up, torching a promising premise on tiresome storytelling and a mangled tonal balance."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"Kids vs. monsters tale that take a while to warm up, but picks up nicely."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"Unfolds with a nuance and relative level of sophistication that belies its generic title, before eventually succumbing to a haphazard, poorly explained explosion of gore."
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
"Under The Bed offers a fresh take on the fabled boogeyman story, delivering an entertaining explanation of what exactly is going "bump in the night" - along with one hell of a horror finale."
‑ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
"A standard-issue creepshow, undermined by script holes and a meager budget that brings distinctly subpar effects."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"The film's sense of conviction and psychological nuance never rises above that of the "I Learned It from Watching You" anti-drug PSA."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"A film of two halves - one dull, the other exciting and funny."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
