Critics have praised the film for its terrifying atmosphere and relentless scares. Katie Rife from IGN noted, “There are moments when *Longlegs* feels like a movie you’ve seen before, but with an evil filter laid over it: This is both a weakness and a strength, as Perkins’ horror surrealism renders the familiar strange, and the strange familiar.”

Meagan Navarro from Bloody Disgusting wrote, “‘Longlegs’ gets under your skin and stays there, immersing you so thoroughly in the repulsive, discomforting nature of evil through terrifying imagery and a tactile atmosphere that it’s unshakable.”

J Hurtado from ScreenAnarchy described it as a “masterpiece; an unholy, horrifying confluence of high art and anxiety, a film in which every frame is a nightmare, and it’s beautiful.”

“Longlegs” premieres in theatres on July 12.
