Critic Reviews for Salvage

All Critics (7)

Besides featuring people we can actually identify with, the film itself is actually pretty terrifying

April 4, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Lawrence Gough's horror thriller ploughs its way through its strange plot pretty thoroughly.

A smartly budgeted and often scary chiller.

It's an efficient genre workout, with plenty of shocks and splats and a political subtext, but most impressively, it successfully combines dread with the domestic...

Gough can't disguise his third act monster's rubberiness, but it doesn't fatally wound his clever chiller that impresses up to its inevitably downbeat conclusion.

It's a promising premise that soon gets stuck in a cul-de-sac.

Audience Reviews for Salvage


A pretty poor script and low budget executed masterfully. The positives and negatives almost perfectly cancel one another out for a completely watchable middle-of-the-road type horror.

I watched about 25-30 minutes of Salvage on netflix & was out like a light.I woke up, It was still on & I went right back to sleep.1 good thing about Salvage was the beginning.Everything I watched after that was from the inside of my eyelids.I didn't care at all to restart or replay the movie from where I left off from so that tells you how bad I thought it was.Give it a chance if you'd like but I suggest you avoid Salvage altogether
