Critic Reviews of "Emelie"RogerEbert.comMarch 04, 2016
The result is reasonably satisfying, but the direction shifts from tensile to muddy in the run-up to the finale.VarietyMarch 04, 2016
A familiarly premised but stringently executed home-invasion chiller that rarely goes for the straight-up scare when a more insidious one will do.Los Angeles TimesMarch 03, 2016
Parents in the market for some deserved date-night distraction couldn't do much worse than "Emelie" - and that's meant as a compliment.New York TimesMarch 03, 2016
Mr. Thelin plays with genre clichés without upending them, and the results are more creepy than scary, with shivers that are primarily generated by the sight of threatened children ...Entertainment WeeklyMarch 03, 2016
In some cases, a slow build is a necessary and effective way to up the scare factor. In this case, the slow build is painstakingly sluggish, a seemingly never-ending climb toward a climax that's not satisfying enough to be worth the wait.AV ClubMarch 03, 2016
Herbeck's script pokes at the anxieties of parents who leave their kids alone with virtual strangers, while Bolger excels at playing the nightmare version of a babysitter: seemingly sweet, cool, and capable, but secretly evil.Reel Film ReviewsJanuary 19, 2017
...a promising yet half-baked endeavor that surely would've worked better as a short.HeyUGuysAugust 24, 2016
Not only could Emelie feasibly start a spate of similar psycho babysitter knock-offs if successful but it is also a great deal more interesting than most of its sub-genre predecessors.FILMINK (Australia)August 24, 2016
Creepy, claustrophobic and unnerving, this is the perfect warning against hiring anybody you find off Facebook.IGN MoviesAugust 24, 2016
Moments are individually well-crafted but don't always work in the context of the movie as a whole.Eye for FilmAugust 15, 2016
Where it does fall back on formula, Emelie is sufficiently well made to hold viewer attention and it succeeds in maintaining a degree of creepiness throughout.StarburstAugust 15, 2016
A fun, darkly intelligent twist on a story you think you know well, but one that sadly, like so many others, loses its way in the final act.
