Milcho Manchevski's Shadows is visually striking but gets bogged down in supernatural clichés.

Ben Walters
Time Out

Shifting between garish city and bucolic scenes, Shadows offers some arresting images but fails to make good on its intriguing early scenes, with frissons of uncanny menace sunk by a glib, awkwardly paced and increasingly cliché screenplay.

Critic's Notebook

Manchevski bathes Shadows in the highly-charged, melodramatic atmosphere and renders the trashier touches with aplomb.

New York Times

An unwieldy hybrid of historical allegory and supernatural mystery.

Andrew Sarris
New York Observer

[The] two very attractive leads, Mr. Nacev and Ms. Stanojevska, were picked out of a pool of aspirants in Macedonia and its neighboring countries. Actually, they are so arresting together that it is truly unearthly.

Avi Offer
NYC Movie Guru

A hauntingly frightening, clever and surprisingly poignant psychological horror film.

AV Club

A respectable enough little ghost story, but it loses a lot of sparkle by being similar to such other guy-talks-to-the-dead thrillers as The Sixth Sense and Ghost Town.

Village Voice

If not for the hypnotic atmosphere, lush cinematography, and frequent, if random, softcore humping, we'd have seen these ghosts before.

Boxoffice Magazine

An exercise overly rooted in American genre filmmaking while never sufficiently mainstreaming the European context in a way that would break out to more commercial stateside distribution.
