'(writer) Ebeltoft makes a virtue of writing economy, and director Rod Blackhurst maintains considerable interest as well as a consistent low hum of tension. The performers are all credible as ordinary, fallible folk who’ve managed to survive a plague (so far) through sheer luck as much as anything; no one here is larger-than-life.

“Here Alone accomplishes in 97 minutes what The Walking Dead only occasionally accomplished across 16 hour-long episodes: it made it feel like its characters mattered.”
“the film becomes a quiet examination of humanity, a reflection of our own tendencies and how the world might react to an event of this magnitude.”
The Word - April 28, 2016
“Every element in this movie is superb: Directing, acting, cinematography, the minimalist music score and the editing, just to name those.”
“...an exquisitely crafted piece of suspense and horror that will reach into the hearts and souls of audience members.”
“Gripping storytelling that doesn't rely on gratuitous gore and violence.”

"...those looking for a patient portrait of survival and spiritual death will find plenty to sink their teeth into."
