      Brian Tallerico HollywoodChicago.com There's a nice twist or two in Hush and it's reasonably well-made but it feels like a TV movie or, worse, an extended TV episode of an anthology series. Jun 12, 2009 Full Review James Christopher Times (UK) The label slapped on the side of Mark Tonderai's low-budget horror movie has absolutely no bearing on the silly contents. Rated: 2/5 Mar 13, 2009 Full Review Wally Hammond Time Out Mark Tonderai's debut makes for a smart calling card but relies on one tension-destroying clich too many and offers too few thrills to satisfy the hardened horror buff. Rated: 3/6 Mar 13, 2009 Full Review Nikki Baughan Roll Credits Hush becomes a tight little thriller that waves the flag for British horror. Rated: 4/5 Oct 30, 2019 Full Review Chris Cabin Filmcritic.com Rated: 2.5/5 Apr 12, 2011 Full Review Christian Toto What Would Toto Watch? Hush proves you don't need a Jason, Freddy or Michael to create a nasty little horror showcase. Rated: 3/4 May 19, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews

      Sameir A This film reminds me of the road horror films which had a great boom in the 90's. We have a ton of films like this, so nothing is amusing in it. Everything goes as we expect, even the struggles are as per the criteria. Anyway, it won't bite. You can give it a try, if you still love to watch another road horror. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/08/21 Full Review Manny P In 1971, Stephen Spielberg made his directorial debut with "Duel". All other trucker movies need not apply. The dialogue delivery is torture. The acting non existent. It's pitiful in the extreme. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/24/21 Full Review Audience Member Was looking for Hush 2016 instead found this one. I was not disappointed. If you like films where the protagonist don't solve one problem when another arises then this is for you. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member A so-so kidnap horror. Nothing new to see with a few too many familiar tropes and it getting a bit too silly in the second half. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review andy f Second rate reinvention of Duel with a little Wolf Creek thrown in. Just about gets three stars for a bit of suspense and dark entertainment, but it is a little flat and pointless. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This film sucks plain and simple. The first 20 mins look like the beginning of a decent film, then it just descends into absolute tosh!. The camera work is awful, the acting was abysmal (especially Ash). Rubbish, rushed ending, unbelievable baddy who only ever walks (like that's not been run into the ground). Twists that are so hacked together they're no longer twists as you see them coming from space. I am disappointed in Warp for releasing a film this bad, as they've always been quite original and innovative, but this is a mixture of Duel, hostel, and any nondescript Freddie vs Jason type franchise. Avoid if you possess brain cells Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
