“With a lack of tension and low-feeling stakes, you’d think Even Lambs would be really, really dumb. It’s not. It’s clever without feeling like it’s trying too hard and it all just works … Even Lambs reaches a nice balance of human horror, dark comedy, and violent revenge flick.” Patrick Cooper, Bloody Disgusting
“The revenge chapter doesn’t take on any of the ridiculousness of I Spit on Your Grave, and the entire movie is done with considerable taste. Exploitation is not the key, and yet the film is totally enjoyable and watchable from beginning to end. Writer/Director Terry Miles can consider this a very fancy feather for his cap.” Luna Guthrie, UK Horror Scene

“Katie and Sloane use their physical power to escape and then go on a Tarantino-esque style revenge killing spree on the corrupt individuals that inflicted sexual violence on the girls … Overall, the film was a fun watch full of gore, revenge and witty moments of comic relief.” Matthew Candelaria, Met Media
“Yes, of course rape is an unpleasant subject matter, so it’s entirely understandable that some filmmakers and actors might feel uncomfortable taking it on. But if a cast and crew are not willing to push both their audience and themselves beyond their comfort zone, then they really have no business trying to make exploitation.” Ben Bussey, Brutal as Hell
“The deaths are all warranted, and surprisingly, creatively awful, but you don’t focus on the violence, as much as you focus on the glorious revenge for the two young women. It’s fun, even if it is murder, which is something that isn’t easy to do. You applaud the ladies for being creative. You cheer for them when they tease their victims.” Jason, Delve
“Well made and well directed for the most part. Some of the acting is eh, but I could get past it. The real problem with this movie is that is it trying so hard to be a revenge exploitation film, but you hardly see any of the atrocities that call for revenge. And the revenge that does take place in the film has already been done before.” Hal Jarvis, Letterbxd
