“With Bartlett’s deliberate, gradual pacing of Treehouse, any fidgety lack of patience from an audience raised on cattle-prod scares will be stifled by a superbly tense, unrelenting final act that makes this low key release one to hunt down and purchase.” Scream
“The elaborate treehouse in the film acts as a bunker, with the teenagers inside stalked and harassed by evil. The assault and retreat by the villains introduces some very solid conflict and a few surprises are housed in the tree limbs…” 28 Days Later Analysis
“The finale is every bit as bonkers as you’d expect which makes for an energetic, pedal to the metal conclusion to proceedings that is made even more entertaining by the wit that underlines it. On this evidence, Michael Bartlett is a director to keep an eye on.” Top Ten Films
“Treehouse overall is a solid film, one that starts out extremely well only to be hampered by a weaker final act. But don’t let this put you off, despite this Treehouse is still head and shoulders above the vast majority of big budget horror films.” Ginger Nuts of Horror
” …pretty sub-standard even where the oversaturated market for mass produced fright films is concerned. Having three redneck, hillbilly brothers (at least one presumes they’re brothers, though this is never actually spelt out) chase you through the woods brandishing assorted knives and sawn-off shotguns, is nothing new.” The People’s Movies
