Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's talent here, but Villanueva, like a young artist still influenced by his elders, needs to find his own style or he'll become a skilled yet unexciting copyist."
‑ Jay Weissberg, Variety
"There are several reasons to stay with "Penumbra" until the bloody end. Cristina Brondo makes this bitch-on-wheels likeable. She is a remarkable actress. And, the directors (Garcia Bogliano brothers) know how to build suspense. C'est bizarre!"
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
"Since the movie is one long build-up to a reveal, it offers a lot of time to learn to hate Brondo and everything she represents."
‑ Alison Willmore, AV Club
"Bearing in mind that the title of the film translates to 'shadowy, indefinite, or marginal' I leave it up to you to decided whether or not patience is one of your virtues."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Horror.com
"The film's ending is a letdown, but it's a blast to root for such a brassy, rhymes with "itch" heroine."
‑ Christian Toto, Big Hollywood
"Argentinean import Penumbra is a slick, teasing, well constructed genre offering that rather skillfully exploits audience antipathy toward its bitch-on-wheels protagonist."
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
