In his review for /Film, Erin Brady said Sarah Snook and Lily LaTorre deliver “great performances,” with the solid former as “a mother on the brink. She conveys hysteria without being campy and feels like she’s genuinely surrounded by fear.” LaTorre, Brady argued, offers “one of the most realistic portrayals of early childhood in recent horror memory.” But the film is ultimately “disappointing” and the problem is that it “just doesn’t seem to know what it is”. Most other film critics agree with Brady. At the time of writing, “Run Rabbit Run” has a “rotten” score of 38% on the review aggregator. rotten tomatoes.
