The central gimmick is just another excuse to let the bloodletting commence in this low-budget thriller.

Despite the essentially formulaic nature of the proceedings, the film does boast some nasty twists that prove galvanizing.
Brian Orndorf
June 18, 2014
Instead of a grandly ghoulish dash for survival, the movie revels in ghastly behavior with a mouthbreathing concentration that's as irritating as it is worthless.

Most of the characters are either types or anonymous bodies in motion... but the handful with backstories are well played by a cast composed largely of actors with respectable and diverse TV and indie-movie credits.

By the time half the contestants have been offed you may be less interested in who will win than when it will all be over.

Real suspense and shocks are MIA in a movie that's eventful but lacks the atmospherics needed to be scary.

Though the dialogue is pretty basic and the narrative dots don't always quite connect, "The Human Race," in its own gutsy, grindhouse-movie way, manages style, vision and tension.

The Human Race, a dreary, smeary, low-low-budget but even lower-inspiration horror flick, is likely to leave viewers rueing the craven, disappointing species into which they were born.

Utterly generic, but reasonably well-played and directed

a bleak and often bloody portrait of humanity as a plaything for drives and forces beyond its comprehension or control.
Simon Foster
March 8, 2013
Filled with fine performances, splattery effects and an electrifying out-of-nowhere third-act twist that pushes Hough's feature debut into instant cult status.
