The brooding atmosphere of dread, touched at times with a clammy eroticism, is powerful. And the supernatural manifestations... had a hair-raising, matter-of-fact suddenness and believability. It's a freaky movie.
December 1, 2019
Cerebral horror wrapped in an aesthetically stunning package part Fulci, part Lynch, part von Trier while also announcing Singer as a distinct artist in his own right.

Whether you find yourself falling for its spooky spell, there's no denying this is an auspicious debut for [Tilman] Singer.

August 16, 2019
Such a good homage to 1980's Eurohorror that it feels like a forgotten classic.
August 16, 2019
Impressive in both its visuals and sound design that echoes off the highest points of 70s Giallo, Luz still manages to feel entirely unique.
August 16, 2019
One of the stranger horror movies in recent years, more of an impression than an experience, easier to watch than to describe.

Luz is a tight, sharp little shocker that works well on its own terms and suggests that Singer is a filmmaker to watch.
August 8, 2019
Luz, the debut feature from German filmmaker Tilman Singer, is minimalistic, and somewhat devoid of narrative context. But it has a spare, mysterious vibe that keeps the viewer guessing.
August 5, 2019
A pleasantly compelling and sufficiently gory bottle thriller with a supernatural twist.
August 3, 2019
For horror fans looking for something raw and defiant, it's worth a look.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

You may not be able to fully explain everything that you have just seen but you will almost certainly realize that you have just witnessed the best and most fascinating horror film of the season, bar none.
August 2, 2019
What it lacks in substance, it makes up for with style.

"Luz" is a success in elegant perplexity.

Luz is just a good little movie, and a breath of fresh air for horror fans in search of something they haven't seen before.
August 1, 2019
The images have a wonderfully grainy quality, as well as occasional scratches - the kind of thing we don't get from digital moviemaking these days.

[W]riter/director Tilman Singer tells a familiar story in such a unique, stylish way that the material, a standard go-to for horror movies, almost feels new again.

The movie knows what it's doing, whatever it's doing.

July 27, 2019
Singer is at the helm of a hell-raising and hypnotic horror showcase in a feature debut that sizzles, rattles, and bewilders. Luz is perhaps one of the most compelling and complicated creepfests that one will encounter this year

Smartly avoids the usual cliches for demonic possession films.
