” …there is a feeling of cluelessness pervading through the narrative, like in Scooby-Doo […] Confined space of an old mansion, a bunch of baffled characters on the quest to solve the mystery, lots of running around contrasted with scenes where characters remain still for no reason, the impression of the uncanny is not caused by the supernatural forces but the strange structure of the script. Nevertheless Reside remains great entertainment.” Eastern Kicks
” …Sasanatieng weaves an intriguing story about how death doesn’t always bring closure for the departed. Like we said, Reside is one of the better Thai horror movies we’ve seen in some time, so if your guts are up for it, you won’t regret checking into this residence of mystery and terror.” Movie Exclusive
“Its fragmented narrative delivers the right amount of tension and mystery but is let down by a fairly feeble ending. Reside should also come with a headache-trigger warning, as it substitutes meaningful dialogue with annoying, repetitive name-calling, which just seems like lazy writing.” TNP
