Critic Reviews:

...even accounting for each viewer's mileage varying, "Coming Home in the Dark" settles into the memory as a mesmerizing missed opportunity at worst, a promise of future classics at best. It's a razor-edged calling card.


Brutal and blatant without being gratuitous, Coming Home in the Dark manages to keep its utterly horrifying nature at its brim. One might argue that the spark ignited by the cocking of Mandrake’s gun so early on in the plot may have led to its premature douse. But it doesn’t change the fact that the movie can deliver a chill that hits the spot.


Successful purely as a lean, gritty seen-it-all-before survival thriller, Coming Home in the Dark really shifts into another gear when the weight of the story drops, and while the final reel feels a little bit all over the map, its the complex themes of guilt and accountability which linger more than any of the violence on display.
