Consensus: While this debut by Edward Anderson is economical and occasionally effective, Shuttle offers little catharsis after its tense ride.

Colin Covert
Minneapolis Star Tribune

The film is an efficiently engineered mechanism for creating suspense.

Shuttle mostly exists, in the words of Alfred Hitchcock, to 'put the audience through it,' but it leaves you in a very different place than where it started and with remarkable economy of effort.

Michael Dequina

Boasts a killer premise and better than average acting, so it's all the more disappointing that Anderson proves unable to avoid annoying horror movie pitfalls.

Scott Tobias
AV Club

When the payoff finally arrives, it seems tasteless not just because of its topicality, but because the shock feels unearned.

Ted Fry
Seattle Times

Shuttle is a grim and twisted exercise in high-stress terror that falls just short of the torture-porn subgenre.

Movie Habit

Immediate frights and long-lasting dread are still not quite enough

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

There is no release for the audience, no 'entertainment,' not even much action excitement. Just a remorseless march into the dark.

Kevin Thomas
Los Angeles Times

If you step aboard Shuttle, be prepared for one heck of a ride filled with suspense, action and ever-escalating terror. With this ingenious thriller, Edward Anderson, who wrote the heist flick Flawless, makes an audacious directorial debut.

A fairly decent low budget indie thriller. I didn't expect much having not heard of it, but it was ok and I did find the ending quite different. As with… More

In this Horror we have reminders of bits from many other films, so whilst it almost seems an original (albeit a no-brainer of a Horror) movie, hints of Freddy… More
