October 10, 2019
An absolutely petrifying, bone-chilling, hauntingly sinister horror movie with some of the most dreadful atmospheres I have ever experienced, A Dark Song is also one of the best movies I have seen in many years.

The dark beauty of a few moments eclipses the increasingly ludicrous whole.

An astonishing and brave feature debut that marks director-writer Liam Gavin as one to watch. Highly recommended.

A Dark Song is a gorgeous film that is guaranteed to be polarizing to audiences.
August 29, 2018
Best viewed alone in the dark, A Dark Song is a strong and compelling feature debut.
August 25, 2018
An extraordinarily personal film, A Dark Song feels like a folk tale whispered to you at night while you sleep by person or persons unknown, recalled in vague half-remembered images and flashes of almost incomprehensible truths.
March 27, 2018
Rather than relying on spontaneous shocks, the horror of A Dark Song instead lingers with you.
November 13, 2017
A Dark Song is a ridiculously strong and beautifully acted piece of work, but one that deserves a much more satisfying conclusion.
August 10, 2017
A Dark Song is a thoughtful, grounded take on the search for meaning that mixes horror conventions with things still darker, yet which strains towards a transcendental moment which a lesser filmmaker would have been afraid to contemplate.
May 26, 2017
Imperfectly realized, but still worthy of its ambition.
May 25, 2017
An instant classic, the sort of film that will make you check under your bed at night and then amplify into terror the midnight creaks and 3am breezes that unsettle every house at times, most especially yours.

For a first feature, Gavin certainly provides plenty of anxiety-inducing moments.

I found A Dark Song absorbing and fascinating, a subtle horror tale that haunted me for weeks.

Once A Dark Song starts delving into issues like love, loss, faith, and the natural human reaction to sudden tragedy, that's when it blossoms from a novel concept to a truly powerful piece of genre filmmaking.
April 28, 2017
A Dark Song is a beguiling terror that saves its best reveals right up until the end, the lines between good and evil, right and wrong, Heaven and Hell, hypnotically blurring until they practically no longer exist.
April 28, 2017
You have never seen a resolution like this one. You've never seen a film like this one.
April 27, 2017
One of the most unsettling horror movies of recent years. Scary and poignant.
April 27, 2017
With a cutting soundtrack and desaturated imagery, A Dark Song is a film that is gloomy, broody, but which offers little past masculine aggression and the spectacle of feminine suffering.
April 27, 2017
Virtually a chamber piece with just two primary characters, the movie dives into the black arts with methodical restraint and escalating unease.
April 27, 2017
The two leads are resolute soldiers about it all, but they're dutifully edgy elements in a stylist's frame instead of fully realized characters living out what is supposed to be the riskiest time of their lives.
