The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen
Although chances are good that something called This Is Your Death is not going to be admirably restrained in the subtlety department, there was at least the hope that this grotesque thriller wouldn’t have kept pivoting uneasily between audacious social satire and mawkish moralizing.

We Got This Covered - Matt Donato
This Is Your Death is a brilliant concept, but tonal mishandling makes for another media takedown that's all bark and no bite.
30
Los Angeles Times - Kimber Myers
The movie attempts to comment on reality-show culture, but it offers little insight beyond its ill-conceived premise. With suicide at its center, The Show is both tone-deaf and a tonal mess.

Variety - Peter Debruge
This Is Your Death deeply misunderstands depression, treating suicide as a convenient device for its pea-brained premise.
