  • It would spill over into silly if not for the delicate performance of Burdge, who brings a palpable fragility and anchors the film with her sensitive, intensely physical performance.

  • It's a story that has its share of unnerving sequences, but like its pivotal character, it feels stuck between two worlds.

  • Slight though it may be, Lace Crater's mix of Andrew Bujalski-style naturalism and Roman Polanski-style body horror is at least off-kilter enough to keep one absorbed throughout.

  • What at first looks like a mumblecore comedy with a supernatural twist turns into something darker, and many viewers will not feel like going along for the detour into psychological horror.

  • Lace Crater elbows us to think about how quickly we dismiss "crazy ladies" - women who need things we can't give, who cry and mutter and glare and ruin parties

  • Ms. Burdge - all quicksilver emotion and exposed nerve endings - is an endlessly watchable focal point. Her character's vulnerability, uncertainty and growing self-acceptance lend the movie a necessary gravity.
