[May contain spoilers] Reviews:

“The movie believably takes on a lot of concerns about the perverse ways we use technology. From lurking Facebook profiles to sharing GPS locations, Creep Nation is a cautionary tale taken to an extreme that most would hope not to experience. It’s still an unlikely scenario, but one that becomes increasingly more possible as advancements are made in technology.” Goomba Stomp

“It’s not scary, mostly because it’s just outdated depictions of snuff content, voyeur content, and lazy jump scares. Also because the other content is stuff you’ve seen in films like Taken. Actually, this is pretty much just a lazy low budget paraphrase of the stuff that goes in Taken…” Horror Reviews by The Collective

“I really liked the intrigue of the plot which kept things interesting, although the ending didn’t feel satisfying enough.  Still well worth a watch.” Kevin Cormier

“It seems like one of the goals of Creep Nation is to provide a commentary on the increased lack of privacy in our lives […] However, despite having a relatively solid start, including the creepy interactions between Sofia and Glen, Creep Nation ultimately tries to be too many things, which bogs down the plot by the end.” Sean Kelly on Movies

“The film manages some strong scenes, such as Aaron seeing the footage of his sister’s murder. There’s another where he has to stitch himself up after taking a knife to the gut. But despite them, Creep Nation doesn’t really build up much in the way of tension. Knowing Sophia’s fate takes the suspense out of that storyline.” Voices from the Balcony
