“Cub will be an enjoyable ride for horror fans. Shot almost entirely outdoors, it looks quite handsome in Nicolas Karakatsanis’ widescreen lensing, and other tech/design factors are expertly turned as well.”
"The beauty of Cub is that it is a film made with real reverence and respect for horror cinema. Govaerts is clearly a filmmaker who loves scary movies, imbuing Cub with a gleefully weird, postmodern twist... A loving, gruesome homage to the dark heart of cinema."
“An impressive debut filled with memorable moments [...] a lot of fun that then slaps you with its dark and powerful message. Even those not into horror should see it for Luijten’s fantastic performance that makes you both empathise and fear.”
