(Bacon's) assured façade slowly crumbling as the house seemingly closes in on him, the actor is able to generate a degree of sympathy for Theo where perhaps it isn't deserved.

You Should Have Left works when it's a streamlined campfire ghost story, but the unnecessary bells and whistles weighs it down. Still, it's just good enough to work as a timewaster for genre fans.

Koepp, who also directed the underrated 2004 Stephen King adaptation Secret Window, knows how to produce jumps and shivers in equal measure.

You Should Have Left is enjoyable, especially since we're stuck inside our own homes much like the characters in the movie, but it has a tough time deciding if it's a cerebral exploration of a man's stifled rage or a brash and jolting horror film.

Koepp begins unsettling the audience right from the start, with freaky nightmares and menacing shadows that don't let up right to the end.

Koepp's pacing is swift, and he makes the most of his star. Bacon became a highly adept actor over the years, and he expertly plays Theo's haggard self-examination as more and more things start not to add up in the mystery house of shadows.

A nicely creepy haunted-house story that mostly strikes a balance between serving its premise and not belaboring it.

You Should Have Left will, however, make you seriously rethink your next Airbnb rental. And maybe even push you to watch Mortdecai, just to see what a real horror looks like.

This one is not on par with Blumhouse's last release (and one of the last wide theatrical releases this year), "The Invisible Man," but grading on a cabin-fever curve, it's a stylish creeper and probably worth the rental.

YSHL gets a lot of mileage from a classic horror troupe. Credit to David Koepp to keep things interesting by fleshing out the characters and writing sturdy dialogue.

Though it uses a pretty basic, familiar haunted-house setup, this spooky horror/thriller benefits from crisp, unpretentious filmmaking, wasting little time on needless filler and getting right to it.

An effective thriller with a solid performance from Kevin Bacon who teeters on jealousy and paranoia.

Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried deftly manage to keep a straight face while stuck battling a house of demons.

The house of Bacon isn't very pretty. But Koepp is a decent enough real estate agent to keep us sticking around.

If you like creepy house movies and seeing Kevin Bacon scared sh*tless, then you'll be perfectly happy ponying up the $19 to rent it.

A stylish and captivating thriller, with great dialogue and performances. [Full Review in Spanish]

You Should Have Left often feels like a watered-down version of The Shining, but Koepp still manages to maintain interest in its mind-bending story.
June 19, 2020
Strangely modern in a setting that feels anything but, the house is both inviting and foreboding, so when ominous things start happening there, it feels that much more believable.
June 19, 2020
Has an A-picture gloss and sophistication often missing from the genre...And the ending makes logical sense, even if the pathos and sucker-punch frights, the terror of real violence, are missing.

David Koepp's haunted-house story entertains despite getting lost in its own corridors.
