"A sparingly used and occasionally atonal score from Erik Friedlander further enhances the sense of eerie unease." - Boyd Van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter


"Taylor-Joy and Cooke bring a charged energy to their scenes, that’s well-matched by the unhinged score, which adds a thick layer of prickly anxiety to the film." - Erin Whitney, Screen Crush


"The extremely unsettling percussion-heavy musical score, incidentally, is by Erik Friedlander, the most original film score since the Oscar-nominated 'Jackie'." - Mitch Salem, ShowBuzzDaily


"The quirky, The Witch-like score sets the proceedings at an edge." - Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily


"…composer Erik Friedlander sets a playful tone for the developing darkness." - Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects


"This movie is designed within an inch of its life, with a piercing, tribal score that heightens an already heightened atmosphere." - Meredith Borders, Birth. Movies. Death.


"[Cory Finley] directs the hell out of it, making particularly good use of offscreen sound (plus the tense tick-tick-tick of an atonal soundtrack)..." - A.A. Dowd, The A.V. Club
