“With its epic sweep and powerful perfomances shedding light on a little-known chapter of American history, this would have seemed like prime Oscar bait for an autumn release. Instead, its being thrown away now, where it will not likely last long in theaters.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“…it’s Refn at his most unwieldy and funny; like if Dario Argento decided to remake SHOWGIRLS and did so with the questionable moral ethics of Stanley Kubrick’s LOLITA.” – Sam Cohen, Substream Magazine

“[Refin's] film is a Terry Richardson print that’s been slathered in gore and stationed under a strobe light.” – Jake Mulligan, Dig Boston

“THE NEON DEMON is not easy to watch or easy to follow, but its dark humor and even darker opinion of humanity makes it one of the best films of 2016.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Film Thrills

“It’s sobering stuff that invites our compassion instead of baiting it.” – Andy Crump, The Playlist
