Critic Reviews for Lost Child

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

Lost Child never becomes as affecting or suspenseful as it should be.

September 13, 2018 | Full Review…

The slow-burning thriller walks a fine line, balancing elements of psychological drama and the supernatural, with a surging undercurrent of social commentary that sneaks up on you.

A haunting examination of folklore and isolation.

December 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Though Lost Child does try to strike at a deeper emotional core through its mishmash of tropes, the over-glossed methodology and cheap resonance make the experience ultimately (and thoroughly) underwhelming.

October 15, 2018 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…

Tries to have things both ways, raising supernatural overtones while trying to remain grounded in reality, and it doesn't succeed in maintaining the delicate balance that combination requires.

September 18, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

I really tried to like Lost Child, given the Missouri connection and my interest in folklore, but ultimately I had to admit defeat.
