Consensus: Though not entirely effective as a conventional horror flick, Grace is still a graphic, disturbing, and artful exploration of twisted maternal instinct.

Los Angeles Times

It's a horrifying meditation on the unbreakable union of mother and child.

Village Voice

Creepy, yes, but what's the point of all of this bratty, poignance-free bloodletting?

Adam Lippe

Grace is just a stretched thin short film, as the mother-in-law with the unsettling maternal issues, the corrupt doctor, and the lesbian midwife material don't fit in.

Keeps you on the edge of your seat, or perhaps the edge of fleeing the theater.

Grace very well could be the movie you need to see to restore your faith in the idea that there is still an artistic vision within the horror genre.

Syfy Wire

It focuses on characters rather than the color red, which is why it manages to surpass many of its more prominent cinematic competitors and qualify as one of the few true must-see horror movies of 2009.

Paul Solet's gyno-horror flick is certainly twisted but only slightly unnerving; the movie is about as gripping as one might expect given that its infant monster is both mute and cradle-bound.

Simon Foster

Solet's wicked slice of Suburban Gothic horror taps into some of humankind's most potent iconography and exploits that imagery mercilessly.

This movie is sick as hell. Very disturbing. I saw this because of the poster. It seemed like "It's a good movie that will make you jump in every… More

At times it got a little boring and I lost interest. Don't get me wrong, the story had potential, but it just got too crazy for me.
Leigh Ryan
Disturbing. Not so much for the scariness, but for the plot itself. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Emily Armstrong
Again, this is a movie that will make your very skin crawl. I found all the characters very three-dimensional and interesting, and all had very tangible… More
