In her review for /Film, Erin Brady said that Sarah Snook and Lily LaTorre deliver “great performances,” with the former solid as “a mother on the brink. She conveys hysteria without being campy and feels like she’s genuinely encompassed in fear.” LaTorre, Brady argued, delivers “one of the most realistic depictions of early childhood in recent horror memory.” But the film ultimately is “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” stands at a “rotten” 38% score on reviews aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
