“What helps is that this was made by only two directors, Adam Ambrosio, who made the ‘Encounter Nightly’ story and Jamison M. LoCascio, who made the ‘Harrowing’, ‘Blood Beach’, and ‘Nelly’ chapters. That allows this to have more narrative cohesion than the average — or below-average — horror portmanteau you find streaming online.” B&S About Movies
“While I was mostly unimpressed with the writing, How Dark They Prey is a short watch and worth checking out for some genuinely good performances.” 3/5 Flix Chatter
“How Dark They Prey is an interesting series of horror tales, with a nice mixture of styles.” Movie Reviews 101
“A very nice anthology that might differ quite a bit in approach in its individual segments (for example, ‘Encounter Nightly’ is found footage horror, ‘Nelly”s an outright comedy), but no matter what style, the direction is assured in all segments, and what holds the film together is good storytelling throughout…” Search My Trash
“I think some of the stories are stronger as a whole than others- the one at the lake and the one with the soldiers probably connect the most- but I like how LoCascio and Ambrosio have something to say in each one about human nature, especially how it’s in our nature to want something, but when we get it, we aren’t necessarily prepared for what happens next. Each segment throws us off-guard…” Sonic Cinema
“As it stands ‘Nelly’ is the only segment that really works, although ‘Encounter Nightly’ comes close. Diehard anthology fans may get more out of How Dark They Prey’s other segments than I did, but to me, they just didn’t live up to their potential. With a bit better budget, or stories better tailored to the budget they did have, I suspect the results would have been better.” 2.5/5 Voices from the Balcony
