Reviews
  • Cinemasmack.com: Entertains for all of its ninety minute runtime. Horror fans should certainly give The Unfamiliar a shot as it doesn't disappoint.
  • Carlosdev.wordpress.com: I love those psychological horror films where the main character may or may not be going insane. This is one of those.
  • Darkeyesoflondon.blogspot.com: The Unfamiliar looks very good.
  • Gingernutsofhorror.com: builds an interesting mythology, has moments of tension, action, strong character development, is marketable, and has plenty other qualities.
  • Horrorfuel.com: Looks terrific, with splendid cinematography — including some crisp underwater sequences. Well made.
  • Thegrumpofhorror.wordpress.com: With good performances and a couple of good surprising developments in the story, I did enjoy the film.
  • Scariesthings.com: A clever take on what would at first glace feel like a conventional ghost story / psychological horror tale. It ends up spinning things in a way that is surprisingly satisfying and ends up being exactly as the title suggests: Unfamiliar.

Een zinderend massaspektakel met adembenemend in beeld gebrachte gevechtsscènes.

Reviews
  • Blu-ray.com: Successful with its offering of violent action and tensions between Carpathian Mountain villagers and an invading Mongol army, while the performances find the vibe of the production with refreshing ease, supporting the effort with enjoyable thespian intensity.
  • Eyeforfilm.co.uk: The fighting here is rough and realistic and there are a couple of spectacular set pieces. Watch this on a big screen if you get the chance.
  • Jbspins.com: The action and the freedom-fighting defiance are the things to see here and they are impressive. Recommended for fans of sword-wielding underdog movies.
  • Punchdrunkcritics.com: Great Visuals And Strong Fight Choreography. The directing and editing during the battles is crisp, clear, full of tension, and greatly engaging. The large-scale CGI shots display clashing armies very well, and the close-up and intimate fighting scenes work incredibly well. The final battle especially is quite effective.
