Reviews from critics so far include one from chief film critic at Variety, Peter Debruge, who said Sandberg manages to ‘conjure some effective scares’.
Sandberg once again manipulates lighting, composition and suspense, framing shots in such a way that we’re constantly searching the shadows for hints of movement, while drawing out scenes for maximum tension.
As more reviews come in, it’s unlikely the perfect score will remain, but early signs suggest it’s going to be a pretty good horror flick.
