TheWrap - James Rocchi
Nothing here feels cheap or hasty, which is why the horror, when it comes, is all the more chilling and grim. Slick, sharp and legitimately terrifying, The Gift is a truly brilliant thriller — and, one hopes, the first of many features from Edgerton to come.

Hitfix - Gregory Ellwood
Edgerton, who also wrote the screenplay, shows a masterful touch in playing with conventional expectations.

Tampa Bay Times - Steve Persall
The Gift is B-movie melodrama at its lurid finest, and worth a look.

The Hollywood Reporter - Jon Frosch
Taken on its own undemanding terms and considered within its not very original framework, Joel Edgerton’s feature-length directorial debut is a pleasant — or pleasantly unpleasant — surprise, hitting its genre marks in brisk, unfussy fashion and raising a few hairs on the back of your neck along the way.

The Gift will have you triple-locking the doors and rushing to pull the curtains.
