Doesn't quite justify itself despite some strong performances.

Despite exquisitely rendered scenarios from Angus Hudson's shadowy camera work, You Should Have Left produces more manipulative atmosphere than genuine frights...
July 2, 2020
It's a superficially effective cut-to-the-chase psychological horror film that's not very horrific and really just more of a psych-out.

Director David Koepp is best known as a prolific screenwriter, with credits including good, bad, and ugly. For all his success, his script for this You Should Have Left... has precious few moments that feel remotely organic.

The supernatural aspects take a long time to emerge, and then feel rushed.

It's standard creepy-house murder mystery movie fare that never quite comes together. But while the film is clumsily executed and heavy-handed, the idea is fascinating.
June 29, 2020
Despite at least one great shock effect, this latest effort from the Blumhouse horror franchise is fairly tepid stuff. The creepiness factor is OK, but the payoff is pretty weak.

Eventually, you give up and just start chuckling at the ineptitude. It's also around that time you start to realize it's not the Conroys who should have left, it's you.

The film's main relationship and its crumbling kept me intrigued for some time, but its ending disappoints and confuses. [Full review in Spanish]

You Should Have Left is a boring and convoluted mess due to its bland and uneventful screenplay that wastes its strong cast and ultimately leads nowhere.
June 24, 2020
This visually stylish creep show effectively employs practical tactics, such as a swinging light bulb or a forced perspective, even as its familiar story line stagnates.
June 24, 2020
It's a far cry from bad but Koepp's You Should Have Left is frustrating. Lots of promise exists and with such a sturdy foundation from the acting talent, it would have been easy to build a truly scary film.
June 24, 2020
A terrible concept turned into a thoughtless and confusing movie. [Full review in Spanish].
June 24, 2020
[Atmosphere] does not save the movie, and it needs an awful lot of saving.
June 24, 2020
Right when this movie starts, the entire game is given away.

The house is more interesting than the story itself.
June 23, 2020
Koepp introduces supernatural elements with the deftness of a flashlight-wielding 8-year-old at a slumber party.
June 22, 2020
Bacon, Seyfried, and Essex put in their best efforts, but much of Left feels diagrammed and plotted out, rather than experienced.
June 22, 2020
In the realm of throwaway horror flicks, there's a place for You Should Have Left. It doesn't deliver enough to warrant being labeled as more.
June 22, 2020
A pallid haunted house story...wastes the talents of its two formidable stars.
