They Remain relies on rich atmosphere to effectively establish a sense of creeping dread that's almost enough to cover for its nagging narrative deficiencies.

"They Remain" does what it means to do. It makes the natural feel threateningly alien.
The whole story, such as it is, seems to exist on the level of metaphor, but even metaphors need some definition and weight to keep us interested.
The movie's essential ingredients are simply two good actors, a lab compound, surveillance cameras and an eerie forest that may be driving the characters mad.
It's an engrossing exercise in boiling familiar ingredients down to pure, unbridled creepiness.
With little in the way of plot (the source material is a short story), this sci-fi-tinged horror film is carried solely by the actors and atmosphere, and in the case of the former, it mostly succeeds.
Philip Gelatt's pretentious thriller devolves from inscrutability to incoherence at a laborious pace.
A weird waste of production value and good premise. [Full review in Spanish].
...it eventually delivers on all the darkness it sets up, but the journey up to that moment is such a waste of a good idea and decent actors...
They Remain has atmosphere in spades; unfortunately, there's remarkably little plot to go along with all the mood.
They Remain starts out in the realm of science, but it belongs in the subgenre of horror films... It is a very worthy addition to the category.
What They Remain lacks in novelty it more than makes up for in poisonously paranoid atmosphere.
This cleverly made thriller creeps up on the audience with an understated sense of horror.
