In her review for /Film, Erin Brady said that Sarah Snook and Lily LaTorre give “great performances”, with the former as “a mother on the brink. She conveys hysteria without being cheesy and feels like she’s genuinely surrounded by fear.” LaTorre, Brady argued, offers “one of the most realistic portrayals of early childhood in recent horror memory.” But ultimately the movie is “disappointing” and the problem is that it “just doesn’t seem to know what it is”. Most other movie critics agree with Brady. At the time of writing, “Run Rabbit Run” has a “rotten” score of 38% on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes.
