“The film is a beautiful one to watch courtesy of D.P. Jeffrey Peters’ exceptional lensing that gives the film an otherworldly yet intimate look, while Ersted’s simple yet well told story keeps us involved from beginning to end.” –The Independent Critic

“If ever a film had the originality and weirdness to revitalise mainstream horror, a feature length Month to Month would be it. Following its well-deserved reception, a little luck might, hopefully, see a major studio throw in their lot.” –UK Film Review

“This is a finely crafted short, and one that is next to impossible to over-look.” –Klaus at Gunpoint
