RogerEbert.com - Godfrey Cheshire
A very suspenseful, atmospheric mounting and sharp acting by its small but expert cast.

Los Angeles Times - Michael Rechtshaffen
A frostbitten B-movie can still provide a little welcome relief in the dead of summer. Edge of Winter suffices as a diverting breath of recycled cool air.

The Hollywood Reporter - Frank Scheck
Kinnaman delivers a superb turn.... Holland and White also are excellent as the boys who still love their father even while becoming ever more aware of his failings. Their quietly terrified reactions to his escalating belligerence is far more emotionally wrenching than the tired thriller genre conventions to which the film ultimately succumbs.

Slant Magazine - Ed Gonzalez
One comes to resent the film for how it thrills to the possibility of a father hurting his children.

Movie Nation - Roger Moore
Connolly’s film, formerly titled less poetically, “Backcountry,” has a lovely, wintry tone and a few minor surprises. The action sequences are competently handled, even if there’s little real suspense about what is coming and where this is going.
