Critic Reviews:

...Flee the Light is able to find its place in the multitude of stories about witchcraft by doing what great stories manage to do: suggest, rather than outright tell. It relies on the ambience of Northern Ontario, creating dark, moody, atmospheric scenes, which benefit from a score and sound design created by local talent...

...while Flee The Light is far from perfect, there’s a lot to admire in it, not the least of which is its scrappy spirit and some interesting takes on folk-horror tropes.

Flee the Light succeeds where other witchy folk horror films like Hellbender failed by engaging the viewer from the start. Too many films seem to think they can get away with some bland dialogue or somebody wandering around and acting spooky. There may not be much in the way of elaborate effects, but there are things happening to draw the viewer in.
