All Critics (7)

Besides featuring people we can actually identify with, the film itself is actually pretty terrifying

Shadows on the Wall

Lawrence Gough's horror thriller ploughs its way through its strange plot pretty thoroughly.

This is London

A smartly budgeted and often scary chiller.

Radio Times

It's an efficient genre workout, with plenty of shocks and splats and a political subtext, but most impressively, it successfully combines dread with the domestic...

The Skinny

Gough can't disguise his third act monster's rubberiness, but it doesn't fatally wound his clever chiller that impresses up to its inevitably downbeat conclusion.

Audience Reviews for Salvage


Horror thriller fails to be exceptional in the hoped for ways, but surprises by creating characters more interesting and worthwhile than you usually get in this sort of thing. Still, it can't help the film's central conceit work any better.

Not as SALVAGE as its title claims but it is really a good low budget horror/thriller that delivers good acting, some tension in parts and some gory moments though I think it needed a better conclusion..

I watched about 25-30 minutes of Salvage on netflix & was out like a light.I woke up, It was still on & I went right back to sleep.1 good thing about Salvage was the beginning.Everything I watched after that was from the inside of my eyelids.I didn't care at all to restart or replay the movie from where I left off from so that tells you how bad I thought it was.Give it a chance if you'd like but I suggest you avoid Salvage altogether
