“There’s an interesting family struggle at the center of the whole nightmare, without giving too much away, but it’s as half-baked as everything else going on in this one. We already know right off the bat where the whole thing is going and it never gets much more compelling than that…” Bloody Disgusting

“Kapralov’s reach exceeds his grasp on Let It Snow, and it’s disappointing because the base story has plenty of potential in terms of action and horror, but it simply wasn’t achieved. If you’re a fan of Ivanna Sakhno or just want to see some beautiful shots of the Caucuses, then you may want to check this movie out, otherwise, I’d pass on it.” Crypt Teaze

Let It Snow gift wraps itself as survival horror with a slasher flare and some intriguing imagery, but does neither all that successfully, with a finale that is as frustrating as anything I’ve experienced in the genre this year. Still, Sakhno carries the film with a gut-wrenching display of fierce determination, the locations are breathtaking, and we can never have enough Christmas horror.” Killer Horror Critic

“The whole endeavor as rinse, repeat hypothermia, feels like a pointless exercise in aloof methodology. So yeah, Snow is not The Shining nor is it The Grey nor is it 1993’s Alive. It’s just meh. It’s another cold-weather flick in which the characters survive longer in sub-zero temperatures than any human being has a right to.” Views on Film

“Much of Let it Snow is Mia stumbling around in the snow. The elements are a bigger threat to her than the killer who is on screen for maybe five minutes. The fact they killer first appears relatively early in the film and the fact they were willing to cause an avalanche to try and kill Mia had me hoping Let It Snow was going to be a good horror/action hybrid. Instead, the avalanche was just an excuse to use some stock footage.” Voices from the Balcony

Release:

In the USA, Arclight Films and Grindstone Entertainment released Let It Snow on VOD and DVD on September 22, 2020.

Notes:

Not to be confused with the 2019 Christmas teen romantic comedy of the same name which stars Isabela Merced and Shameik Moore.
