Reviews:


"The influence of John Carpenter’s Halloween hangs heavy over Cobweb...familiar scares designed for mainstream audiences. Bodin presents a simple story made more complicated by disorienting editing and loose rules. The committed cast, suitably spooky production design, and Grimm fairy tale vibes do set it apart, with a lively finale unafraid to spill some blood. That’ll be enough for many, but seasoned horror fans might find themselves perplexed by this messy gateway horror entry caught in a tangled web of strange storytelling choices." ★★ Bloody-Disgusting.com

"COBWEB offers up a tangible, atmospheric mastery that is both eerily outlandish and perfectly disquieting. It satisfies the craving for Halloween in July but also offers a fast-moving, unique tension between the seen and unseen. This surreal horror unravels on a shaky stage, a decaying platform where we assume safety lies – only to uncover the true horrors that hide beneath the players’ masks. And it is here that we are offered a glimpse into just how fragile – and fatal – those masks can be." Rue-Morgue.com

” …in many respects, the last few seconds are the most disturbing part of the film, as they take the central theme to its logical, harrowing conclusion. Everything about Cobweb creeped me out – the parents, the voice in the wall, the overall atmosphere. If you like horror, seek this one out.” ★★★½ The AisleSeat.com

” …Bodin handles the dubious narrative surprisingly dexterously. There are quite a few strikingly composed scenes, which unfold with a generally effective slow-building sense of dread. Nevertheless, the nature of the “monster” is distasteful—maybe even offensive—when you really think about it. Even though it is well-made, Cobweb just makes too many questionable choices. Not recommended…” JBSpins.com

” …for as non-committal as it is during that stretch, Bodin whips up a memorably mean-spirited conclusion, replete with animal masks and gushing blood. And it’s more than apt, considering that it’s billed as being from the producer of Barbarian, that the film induces most of its thrills by persistently hiding the ball and making us wonder if we’ll ever escape its grip.” ★★ SlantMagazine.com

” …closer to creepy than it is truly scary, but that fits the dark fairy tale vibe the film aims for. This gamely, menacing cast, sympathetic young star and energetic final act all come together to ensure that audiences will be left hoping to see more from its fledgling director – a first feature to remember.” ★★★★ StarburstMagazine.com
