Critic Reviews of "Shelley"Los Angeles TimesJuly 28, 2016
It's no "Rosemary's Baby" - or even "It's Alive" - but the Danish supernatural thriller "Shelley" is a fair addition to the "natal horror" genre.New York TimesJuly 28, 2016
Maybe expecting a horror film to have a point is expecting too much. In any case, the two actresses give committed performances on the way to a veiled ending.El antepenúltimo mohicanoOctober 11, 2016
A risky and uncomfortable film, not suitable for sensitive people with the unusual virtue of not succumbing to the demands of a more commercial cinema. [Full review in Spanish]SciFiNowJuly 29, 2016
Part Gothic horror, part body horror and part social commentary, Shelley is an atmospheric and thoughtful chiller with real power.The Film StageJuly 28, 2016
Atmosphere and mood are the film's strong suit, both growing thickly heavy as time elapses and strange occurrences commence.The PlaylistJuly 26, 2016
A classy take on the often trashy pregnancy horror category, with a subtle social critique underlying its neo-gothic texture.We Got This CoveredJuly 23, 2016
The difference between Shelley's first and second halves is stark in comparison, but thankfully it only gets better as the seconds pass.Projected FiguresJuly 22, 2016
in this story of pernicious, all-consuming loss, the name [Shelley] furnishes a key, pregnant with possibilities, for interpreting the film's fertile nexus of frictions and associations.
