Critic Reviews for Down

The script here could generously be called inconsistent, more accurately a mess, and even more accurately kinda gross.

Real suspense, violent fun, and a tightly effective script. If you've given up on the series now's the time to come back into the dark with Down.

I do think Down wants to say more than it actually does, and once again - a theme throughout Into The Dark so far - skimps on holiday-themed scares.

The premise was so simple, and it works on many levels, from the basic what you see is what you get, to the deeper analogy about how women have to deal with terror even after a quick, casual hookup.

Director Daniel Stamm's episode is highly ambitious in its narrow scope, entertaining due to its central couple, and genuinely thrilling. It's a good hour and half of horror.

Keeping the setting simple also assisted in amplifying the intensity of the situation.

It's grim and ugly and has nothing new or interesting to say.

"Down" is ultimately predictable fun, but also works as a reminder of the dark, insane things that "love" can make people do.

Character development AND grindhouse-style shocks? We're in...

Masterfully directed and acted, 'Down' could be called 'How Not To Spend Valentine's Day.' If you love thrillers, don't miss it!

Feb 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Unlike the malfunctioning lift, Down keeps finding ways to make the most of what it has.

Feb 2, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Down is both a dark psychothriller and a genuine romance, locking both of these genres together within its pressure-cooker narrative, and showing what it really means to fall - or to be on fire - for someone.
