Critic Reviews for Lost Child

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (5)

  • A haunting examination of folklore and isolation.

    December 6, 2019 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    October 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.

    September 18, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • I really tried to like Lost Child, given the Missouri connection and my interest in folklore, but ultimately I had to admit defeat.

    September 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.

    September 17, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • An extraordinarily delicate balancing act between drama and horror, visually and psychologically expansive, set in a place where stories of monsters are not mere entertaining fun, and where superstition is not harmless.
