“Director Furst has staged the proceedings in reasonably coherent fashion, and production designer Matt Muschamp, dressing up an actual abandoned school, has created a vividly evocative house of horrors. But the overly familiar goings-on in Starve will only leave horror fans hungry for more substantial fare.” The Hollywood Reporter

“The sets and scenarios within Freedom High School make the most out of the lighting and are filled with tension. Furthermore, the main characters (Campo and Bonner) do a great job acting and creating believable on-screen chemistry. Unfortunately, it’s just not enough.” Horror Homeroom

“It had a cool dusty quality to it that fit with the theme of an abandoned school. The editing pieced it all together well, there were some cool angles and lots of action shots. Another really solid effort from Griff Furst.” Horror Society
