  • Lost Child never becomes as affecting or suspenseful as it should be.

  • The slow-burning thriller walks a fine line, balancing elements of psychological drama and the supernatural, with a surging undercurrent of social commentary that sneaks up on you.

  • Though Lost Child does try to strike at a deeper emotional core through its mishmash of tropes, the over-glossed methodology and cheap resonance make the experience ultimately (and thoroughly) underwhelming.

    Oct 15, 2018 | Rating: 3/10 | Full Review…
  • Tries to have things both ways, raising supernatural overtones while trying to remain grounded in reality, and it doesn't succeed in maintaining the delicate balance that combination requires.

  • I really tried to like Lost Child, given the Missouri connection and my interest in folklore, but ultimately I had to admit defeat.

    Sep 18, 2018 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • The way Mosley astutely weaves in comments about America's societal issues is perhaps the most chilling thing of all.
