Tighter editing would have enhanced the film's effectiveness. But the cinematography is striking, sound and music are superb and the two leading actors - who carry much of the movie by themselves - both give telling performances.

Mysterious, eerie and suspenseful.

Nov 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Its crisp cinematography, choice of landscape and gripping performances make it a memorable addition to the cultural definitions of horror film.

As an exploration of a dead relationship, it fails to summon emotional resonance. As a horror film, it is not scary. As both, it's simply incoherent.

Oct 10, 2018 | Full Review…

A slow, subtle, and at times sensual, study into relationships - how they change and the ghosts of the past, Rift is a masterstroke in how to take the viewer by surprise.

Sleek and dark... beautifully made, and packed with fiendishly clever touches.
