Reviews [click links to read more]:

“The acting, for the most part, is solid. The VFX digital and practical FX are, again for the most part, good. Some are even impressive, some well, less so. There are some good shots and solid atmospheric b-roll as well […] The movie has flaws inherent in ultra low budget film making, but it is highly watchable.” Ansempaul

“Overall, 8 Graves was a nice idea and the cinematography wasn’t too bad. Nothing special about the plot really but it could have been a lot better without the cringe-worthy graphics. Some of the acting was better than others and I hope that the movie is just a learning curve for all involved.” Erebus Horror

“Sure, 8 Graves is as flawed and misunderstood as the history of where it takes place, but it’s also got a natural aesthetic and homegrown beauty that’s enjoyable if you look a little closer. There’s even a ballsy little surprise at the end that will make you smile and closes the film out with a dark Southern charm.” Horror DNA

“Any casual viewer of horror will have no difficulty surmising who the “Final Girl” of this picture will be. With that said, I was entertained with how the cast and crew involved were able to build an entire film around these limitations and executed a fun story.” Medium.com

8 Graves is nothing you haven’t seen before. A CGI spectre committing bloodless killings. Characters who act unrealistically, wandering into harm’s way, not noticing when somebody has been gone for hours, etc. […] But there’s almost no gore, no skin and, worst of all, no scares.” Voices from the Balcony
