Reviews [click links to read more]:

Blind is great at the set-up, great at letting us get to know and care about the characters, and then doesn’t deliver enough of a payoff. It has an ending that might have worked for a short, but when the viewer has sat through 83 minutes of something we need more than what Blind has to offer to make it worthwhile.” Arrow in the Head

Blind is a film that will grab the viewer visually and have them pay attention throughout because of its fantastic imagery, its colors and framing, as well as Sarah French’s performance […] The directing by Marcel Walz creates a film that is coherent and works perfectly for the lead even though it has a few sequences that feel a bit overly long.” Cinema Crazed

Blind manages to stay suspenseful and engaging from beginning to end, and Walz’s skillful direction and sense of atmosphere truly brings out the best in the silent moments of Knetter’s screenplay.” Crypt Teaze

“There are some cliché horror moments, but it feels okay in Blind as there is so much more than normal to take in and experience […] It isn’t often I say this, check this movie out – great acting, great imagery, great story with one hell of a cliff hanger.” GrueMonkey

“Marcel Walz’s work often feels like a peek into another time, and that’s true with Blind. Thanks to slower cuts and longer scenes, the film works as a throwback of sorts, serving some serious drive-in vibes while never fully diving into the subgenre.” Nightmarish Conjurings

“All of the performances are phenomenal and the story takes us on a journey of self-doubt, self-discovery, and pure terror unlike any other.” Pop Horror
