A genre picture that reveals some strong qualities before going just a bit off the rails during the home stretch.

Rupert Glasson's persuasive psychological thriller offers an interesting variation on the sociopathic 'stalker' plot.

Just off the beaten track from Wolf Creek and Cape Fear is Rupert Glasson's promising feature debut Coffin Rock; a must-see destination for deftly crafted thrills and chills.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror (UK)

While produced by the Wolf Creek team, the comparisons end there since it's more a humdrum hybrid of Cape Fear and Fatal Attraction, let down by few surprises and even less tension.

Spinning Adrian Lyne's Fatal Attraction on the gender axis and milking maximum suspense from its isolated Australian setting, Rupert Glasson's Coffin Rock is a well-crafted thriller.

Sunday Times (UK)

he quiet, understated setup of the first part of the film is an honest and thoughtful exploration of male ego and infertility. Then Glasson turns up the horror heat and his film becomes another bunny-boiler look at obsession.

Empire Magazine

The set-up is deceptively low-key, but the second and third acts deliver textbook suspense and horror.
