John DeFore
The Hollywood Reporter
"A delicious Hitchcockian thriller (...) Dueling excellent performances from a deranged Sarah Paulson and spunky newcomer Kiera Allen (...) make it hard to look away from the screen"  POS
United StatesUnited States
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
"Despite a script (by Chaganty and Sev Ohanian) that sees no need to flavor its tension with flashbacks or character-fleshing, 'Run' has fun with its ludicrous plot."  POS
United StatesUnited States
Meagan Navarro
Bloody Disgusting
"'Run' is well-crafted and a highly entertaining thriller that’ll keep you hooked from beginning to end. It’s well shot and edited, and grounded by two fantastic leading ladies (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

Michael Ordoña
Los Angeles Times
"Paulson has always been a smart, versatile actress, and she gets to show all the colors of a fractured rainbow here (...) [The script rewards] viewers with one of the better endings of a movie this year"  POS
United StatesUnited States
Peter Debruge
"It’s not subtle, mind you, but in the scheme of campy Paulson performances, this one registers as more nuanced, allowing Chaganty to get away with maintaining the mystery for longer"  POS
United StatesUnited States
Ryan Lattanzio
"[The] screenplay hits repetitive beats (...) but there’s enough go-for-broke and whiplash-inducing shifts in tone on display to suggest this filmmaking duo [Chaganty and Ohanian] has a future"  NEU
United StatesUnited States
Drew Tinnin
Dread Central
"Sarah Paulson, as usual, is the reason to watch this often thrilling, sometimes generic Hulu Original (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  POS
United StatesUnited States
Jared Mobarak
The Film Stage
"Things become so densely atmospheric so fast that you almost don’t have time to look for the strings behind the action"  POS
United StatesUnited States
Alison Willmore
"Whenever Paulson is on screen, she gives 'Run' a much-needed jolt of vitality (...) What makes the turn so enjoyable is that it’s grounded in something recognizable — a soul-deep dread of being abandoned"  POS
United StatesUnited States
Matt Goldberg
"Paulson and Allen are incredible, and they never sell the emotional stakes of the movie short (...) Chaganty has delivered not the typical thriller you’re expecting"  POS
United StatesUnited States
Chris Evangelista
"Chaganty knows how to conjure big excitement from small scale scenarios, and that’s a lot harder than it looks"  POS
