      Emilliano Jr S It was so good, well made horror. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/14/23 Full Review D C It starts off good, but it drags on….. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/19/23 Full Review o a PP PIOR FILME DE TERROR JA FEITO Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Hugo The imaginary friend "Z" delivers some creepy and frightening scenes. And it is convincing enough to makes us believe it is really there. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 12/19/22 Full Review Audience Member It's no Babadook or even 'Toby' from Paranormal Activity but it plays alot like The Babadook, perhaps a little bit too much. For me, I couldn't stop seeing the similarities so focus just wasn't possible. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Z is comfort food horror. It's a not overly scary haunted house / imaginary friend tale that has one mid-story twist and is otherwise as paint by numbers as you can imagine. It's pretty engaging though despite how unoriginal it is. I won't remember much about Z even in as short as a couple months from now, but it's an enjoyable 80 minutes.

      Katie Rife AV Club [I]f you're looking to turn out all the lights, pull a blanket up under your chin, and jump several inches off your couch, there's a new bad-seed thriller to adopt today. Rated: B- May 14, 2020 Full Review Meagan Navarro Bloody Disgusting Based on the formulaic nature of the characters, the story goes precisely where you think it will. Yet if you're looking for something the brings the chills, this is it. Rated: 2.5/5 May 14, 2020 Full Review Brian Tallerico RogerEbert.com It's one of those films that may be overly reliant on jump scares when you tally them all up, but I'd by lying if I didn't admit that a few of them legitimately made me jump. Rated: 2.5/4 May 6, 2020 Full Review Ben Flanagan Vague Visages It makes for good quarantine viewing, but one wishes for a version of the film that does more to eke out the subtext from this well trodden ground. Feb 7, 2024 Full Review Alejandro Alemán El Universal The film manages a certain restraint and prefers to... suggest rather than show, generating tension that grows throughout the film. [Full review in Spanish] Mar 31, 2021 Full Review Lindsay Traves Daily Dead What this film does accomplish is a new take on old scares. Rated: 3.5/5 Feb 23, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
