Critics Reviews of Ghostland:
- “An effectively punishing critique of the relentless misogyny that has become a staple of every stupid Texas Chain Saw Massacre knockoff that pits sexually active women against emotionally disturbed serial killers.” – Simon Abrams, Village Voice
- "Ghostland is a surprising work of horror that feels like a journey to hell. Laugier insists on making the audience suffer like he always does. " – Federico Furzan, Cinelipsis
- “Ghostland manages to render conventional jump scares and plot twists original and fresh, instead of worn out.” – Katie Driscoll, Starburst
