  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    The chillingly twisty plotting is dispensed in painstakingly measured increments that allow for maximum dread and, ultimately, well-earned shock value, while his four leads deliver equally subtle performances that sync with the pacing beat for beat.

  • Peter Bradshaw

    The Ones Below is an intimately disturbing nightmare of the upper middle classes, with tinges of melodrama and staginess, entirely appropriate for its air of suppressed psychosis.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Allan Hunter

    The economical, precisely calibrated screenplay is nicely filled with enough simmering conflicts, character flaws and guilty resentments to keep you intrigued by what lies beneath the surface of these comfortable, middle-class lives

  • Dave Calhoun

    As a storyteller, Farr is bold enough to keep us guessing until the film’s final moments, but a late need to explain lets the film down a little.

  • Christy Lemire

    It’s a slow burn, but even as events turn more than a tad preposterous with twists that seem not just predictable but inevitable, Farr keeps a handle on the tension and tone, which keeps us hooked. Full Review
  • Andy Webster

    Toward the end, Mr. Farr employs familiar cinematic sleights of hand, but with a finely calibrated touch.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Stephen Dalton

    For all its limited ambitions, The Ones Below serves its purpose as a solid calling card for Farr's filmmaking future, a gripping exercise in domestic suspense that sets out its stall on the shoulders of giants.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    The dark side of pregnancy and motherhood has long been fertile filmmaking terrain; this queasy, quiet horror film tips its hat, inevitably, to the genre’s standard-bearer, “Rosemary’s Baby,” but comes up a bit short.

  • Chuck Bowen

    Even the film's lapses inform it with a free-associative sense of portent, evoking the stupid things we inexplicably do in our most personal nightmares.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    There’s plenty to enjoy in the film, starting with a pair of affecting performances by Clémence Poésy and Laura Birn, and ending with a perverse twist on the notion of blissful parenthood.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Patrick Smith

    The Ones Below is a creepy genre exercise by a craftsman finding his groove.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    While The Ones Below doesn’t make it over the finish line, Farr shows good instincts, and has an ease for creating tension without overt manipulation, while keeping everything engaging enough that you’re willing to overlook questions that nag after the credits roll.

  • Kate Erbland

    Although Farr layers on the creepy until the last frame of The Ones Below, the film's ultimate reveal is hardly shocking, and that the film spends a gratuitous amount time unspooling it long after it's clear what has gone down feels indulgent and unearned.

  • Mike D'Angelo

    The Ones Below is a thriller that exasperates more than it thrills.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Farr delves into the sticky issue of parental ambivalence, but he only goes deep enough to carve a small pit in the viewer’s stomach.

    Variety Full Review
  • Jared Mobarak

    The Ones Below needs some B-movie embellishment to set it apart from every other wannabe thriller, but it hopes it’s too serious for such things. So exacting and severe, we see the strings and grow bored of their inevitability.
