Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Even when it fails in several technical and narrative aspects, it presents an interesting story and an unexpected well-crafted turn near the end. The Lurker is a movie influenced by the great slashers of the ‘80s, shown with the clear reference to Crystal Lake and the explicit gore, but that never finds the key that made these movies memorable.” The 10th Circle

“Slow spots and improbable story points are pretty much forgiven once the action gets going, which it does in fairly good style for such a modest, well – meaning shocker. The Lurker sets out to be a bloody 80s-style slasher that doesn’t kid around, and it does so in entertaining fashion.” HK and Cult Film News


The Lurker will be available on Digital and DVD formats on April 14th, 2020.
