Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Opting for much more of an urban gothic tone, it offers a haunting aesthetic that viewers will appreciate, and even want more of. Watching Lilith glide around an old building or outside among a misty city alleyway, the score also complimented that much-desired throwback vibe.” Amino

“The problem is, the demon is so overexposed that she almost has more screen time than the leads. And the rest of our cast are unimpressive but not hopeless. I could see that in the hands of a different director and screenwriter this movie might have something going for it. But as it is, it’s pretty poor.” Dark Eyes of London

“If only the director had thrown in a few more laughable jump scares, hammy lines, and made the monster look even more like a sun-bleached Halloween mannequin, then The Curse of Lilith Ratchet would have been a perfectly respectable, dreadful movie. As it is, it’s just a bore.” Flickering Myth

“Exhilarating, classic and fun all rolled into one, I didn’t expect this movie to be as good as it turned out to be. What a wonderful surprise. Congratulations to everyone involved for their part in creating a hauntingly beautiful, gory nightmare…” Horror Society

” …the killings are unoriginal, improbable and almost laughable […] With potential this intriguing going to waste, The Curse of Lilith Ratchet loses points for effort and comes across as messy and average…” The Movie Sleuth

” …it absolutely works in delivering a haunted tale of murder, madness, and morbidity. Unfortunately, we don’t have a lot of skin – just a lot of hot actresses – and one sick and demented ghost bitch. But the film works in creating a new sort of slasher figure in the presence of Lilith Ratchet.” Reel Reviews

The Curse of Lilith Ratchet is Eddie Lengyel’s best film to date. It may not be as bloody as some of his previous work but it makes up for that with good direction, atmosphere, location and casting. The cast here is far better than you’d expect in an indie film…” Scare Tissue

“It’s got the same plot devices, same characters and same jump scares as so many other evil ghost films. If it brought something different to the table it might have risen above them. The last act does build up some solid tension, and as I said it is well shot.” Voices from the Balcony
