“There Are Monsters is nothing but the cinematic equivalent of the duplicated creatures in the film: a difficult-to-watch, photocopied pastiche of elements cribbed from vastly superior sources.” David Pretty, Entertainment Tourette’s

“Though it’s pacing could easily have backfired to become a patience-testing drag, Dahl’s film thrives by peppering the narrative with a collection of undeniably chilling sequences, which prove to be the real high point of the movie.” Dave Wain, The Schlock Pit
