Critic Reviews for Summer of '84

You'll have to really miss the mid-'80s to make it through [Summer of '84].

"Summer of '84" is only cute and competent enough to be diverting; it's neither funny nor scary enough to leave a lasting impression.

Summer of '84 hit the sweet spot for me so I hope it finds an audience. I need someone to talk about it obsessively with.

This isn't a Stranger Things/IT knock-off, it really does do its own thing and has its own tone...and then that tone goes to some ridiculously dark places.

I enjoyed that [RKSS'] second feature gave these three filmmakers a chance to do something that is very different than Turbo Kid, and yet also feels like the perfect companion piece to their debut feature all the same.

January 30, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The film is a well-intentioned throwback... But that can't stop the movie from feeling like a rehash of a rehash, a story covering ground that's already been reimagined in a much more effective way.
