Reviews

“But Radcliffe, looking believably mature and distraught, gives a stellar performance that never suggests the boy wizard who made him a star.” – Rolling Stone

“That tension — that expecting the worst but never knowing when it might reveal itself — plays naturally across Radcliffe’s features and helps him carry what is essentially a one-man show.” – Time

“Radcliffe plays a challenging role well, frequently with nothing to react against as he tiptoes around Eel Marsh House waiting for something horrible to happen. He’s got good eyes for looking terrified: huge and always a little bit aghast, even in repose.” – Empire Magazine

“Radcliffe gives a clear-eyed, plausibly grown-up performance as Arthur Kipps.” – The Telegraph

“This time around, we’ve got Daniel Radcliffe, out to show that he’s capable of having a post-Hogwarts career, and his performance here goes a long way toward proving it.” – The Wrap
