“This film is a bit of a slow burn, as it only has a few spooky scenes in the first two acts, but those scenes are mostly effective. Admittedly, they’re not super scary, but they’re creepy enough that I had a really good time watching them, and if you’re a fan of supernatural horror, I think you will too.” Horror Obsessive
“A very nice piece of somewhat slow-burn horror that manages to tell a very complex and well-structured story that makes up the suspension of disbelief that it demands with solid storytelling that doesn’t take shortcuts but works towards its shocks and manages to surprise plenty of times along the way. And a direction that finds the right balance between suspense and jump scares…” Search My Trash
“Trip is a watchable, but hardly essential film. Neil McCay has accomplished a lot for very little, but the film never quite manages to make the material about Ally’s grief and its effects as compelling as it needed to be. As a result, the lack of characters and locations drags the first half down […] the horror elements do deliver some scares and tension but are also frequently predictable.” 2.5/5 Voices from the Balcony
Terror Films is distributing Trip and will release the movie on their AVOD Channel on May 13, 2022. A wide digital release will follow on May 20, 2022.
