Critic Reviews for Girl on the Third Floor

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (31) | Rotten (6)

  • The audience knows where the movie's going, and gets there before the movie does. Nonetheless it bodes nicely for longtime horror producer Travis Stevens, here making his feature debut behind the camera.

    December 4, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • This is a haunted house movie that I actually enjoyed a lot... It's kind of a fun look at gender dynamics.

    October 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The impressive haunted house flick Girl on the Third Floor is just as much a machine to produce seductive imagery as it is an effective deconstruction of those blatant symbols.

    October 25, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Still, the film's bifurcated structure is cumulatively effective, especially given that it re-centers the narrative on a wronged woman, rather than her thoughtless, rage-filled man.

    October 25, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A haunted-house flick that mostly eschews jump scares for more satisfying psychological and erotic twists.

    October 23, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The film is loud and obvious about declaring its themes, as if to distract from their ultimate shallowness.

Audience Reviews for Girl on the Third Floor

  • Sep 25, 2020
    The film's feminist themes get muddled after awhile however the bold and grotesque body horror elements stay compelling to the very end.

    A dark and atmospheric horror film, Girl on the Third Floor delivers more mystery than scares. While fixing up his new house Don Koch encounters a mysterious young woman who comes on strong and forces her way into his life, meanwhile the house seemingly thwarts his repair efforts. The cast is okay, but the script is weak; taking a long time to go nowhere. And it doesn't really offer good or satisfying answers to what the house (or spirits) wants or why or how it (or they) does what it does. Gore hounds won't find much here, but there's some disturbing imagery, body horror, and a bit of blood. Kind of a mess, Girl on the Third Floor is a mediocre film that goes more for shock scares.

    CM Punk can't carry this movie and that's the task as he spends a good deal of the film alone in the haunted house "acting" spooked. The filmmaker should have realized this when screening rushes and added more scenes with Trieste Kelly Dunn and Sarah Brooks. They at least are capable actors who deliver the film's only scenes of interest.

    Basically a body horror, but the house is an extra body. It was okay. I know it's a very "in" thing at the moment to not have a single likable character in your horror movie, which is the route that Girl on the Third Floor takes, but I personally don't dig that.
