      Nell Minow AWFJ.org Director Jen McGowan has a genuine feel for place and she gives us a heroine who does not have to be a superhero to be fearless, tough, and determined. Oct 26, 2021 Full Review Tim Cogshell FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) Has way more story than it needs. Sep 14, 2019 Full Review Jude Dry indieWire Under McGowan's restrained direction, "Rust Creek" is an impressive example of good storytelling overriding budget and star power. Rated: B Jan 18, 2019 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Common Sense Media This low-budget thriller has good pacing and a fascinating character dynamic, but it's so riddled with lapses of logic and frustrating behavior that it comes totally undone before it gets going. Rated: 2/5 May 18, 2024 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies A delightfully harrowing thriller from director Jen McGowan. Rated: 4/5 Aug 25, 2022 Full Review Cate Marquis AWFJ.org Rust Creek is a genre film, aiming just to entertain, and there is no reason women directors can't make those kinds of films too rather than ones with social commentary.

      Jay W I give it a 7/10. It was predictable and in the middle it was hard for it to keep my attention at times, but it was still enjoyable enough for me to want to know exactly how it ended and watch it all the way through. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/16/24 Full Review Felix T Simple, but well-acted thriller that keeps you guessing. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/14/24 Full Review Michael K Good movie, good acting and an interesting and unexpected plot line. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/04/24 Full Review Laser O The lead actress is really good. Actually all the performances were good. They did as well as could be done with the extremely sloppy and lazy writing. Dumb and/or extremely unlikely things are constantly happening for the sake of facilitating the next thing that needs to happen. "Why didn't they take that phone?"... "Why doesn't he come up with a decent way to hide her?"... "Why is her phone screen not shattered anymore?"... "How did her pants change?"... But the movie holds your interest well enough, as long as you don't mind saying, "Wait--what?? Why??..." every five minutes. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/01/24 Full Review Audience Member Poor ending and kinda just stuck in one area for most of the movie. But the build up was great, enjoyed it till the ending Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/01/24 Full Review Melissa L I think this was a fabulous movie. I recommend seeing this as it is a great suspense movie. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/01/24 Full Review Read all reviews
