April 15, 2019
Simon Delaney's poker-playing priest is a small mercy in this muddled misstep of a film that collapses into complete confusion in its final act.

April 15, 2019
The otherworldly elements have enough intrigue to give Don't Go an original edge. It lacks character development but compensates with engaging twists and turns.

A puzzling finish, as dream over-hangs reality. Must have been something in the whiskey.

April 12, 2019
The temptation to suggest the title could stand as a review is close to overwhelming, but Don't Go deserves a little better than that. So we won't.

Don't Go has a pleasingly macabre atmosphere, but its thin plot evaporates late on like steam from a waning kettle.

November 28, 2018
At times challenging, at times heartbreaking, this film isn't always gripping, but when gutted there's a viable heart.
November 7, 2018
Gleeson's creation of the environment's tone through the visual, Don't Go builds a fascinating narrative which keeps you on edge right up until the final credits roll.

November 7, 2018
Steeped in Hitchcockian tones with just a dash of supernatural sci-fi, the film moves well and is buttressed by consistent performances across the board.
Full Review | Original Score: B
November 7, 2018
Don't Go has promise to be a great thriller, but it lacks the speed, passion and the suspenseful drama any film like this truly requires.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 29, 2018
With mediocre performances and style, but a whole other screenplay's worth of content to grapple with unfolded in its... final act, Gleeson's film is a sea of ideas with only a lifejacket keeping it afloat.
October 29, 2018
Strong performances by Stephen Dorff and Melissa George plus a haunting script make this a hunt out and see movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

Ennui sets in early in Don't Go, making you wish it would.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 27, 2018
Opting more for mystery and suspense than horror, the film takes too deliberate a path and leaves too much unsaid. That can be compelling when done in the service of a more powerful narrative, but too often here the story is just rudderless.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 26, 2018
Despite some haunting imagery and committed portrayals, the film never establishes an emotional foothold before detaching itself completely with a series of arbitrary plot twists.
October 26, 2018
For all its creative resourcefulness and artistic aspirations, Don't Go just made me angry...
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
October 26, 2018
In this handsomely made psychological thriller, a troubled couple tries to move on after the loss of their young daughter, but find themselves mired in the past.
October 25, 2018
Ronan Blaney and director David Gleeson's screenplay for Don't Go is built entirely around its ending.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
October 25, 2018
The narrative is well crafted and the result is a poignant little film that will linger in the memory. Perhaps you'll even recall it in your dreams.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 25, 2018
It falls on the performances to add subtle touches to the narrative's broad strokes. George is admirably warm as the earthbound Hazel, and Dorff suggests the selfishness of his character's selfless desperation.
October 24, 2018
Gleeson goes the Hallmark Channel route, damaging an intermittently curious entry in the time travel subgenre.
