"A spellbinding picture."

— Jason Bailey, The Playlist

"Elizabeth Moss is phenomenal."

— Chris Evangelista, Slash Film

"A psychologically layered portrait of unapologetic womanhood that’s dangerously sensual and sumptuously rebellious."

— Carlos Aguilar, The Wrap

"A perversely entertaining take on a brief period of Shirley Jackson’s life gives Elisabeth Moss one of her most daring roles to date."

— Benjamin Lee, The Guardian

"In Shirley Jackson, [Moss] veers from grumpy to menacing to touching, turning in what may be her best - and is surely her wittiest - film performance to date"

— David Canfield, Entertainment Weekly

"Gubbins’ script is tart, verbally lively and neatly constructed, while director Josephine Decker, in her first outing since her well-received 2018 Sundance entry Madeline’s Madeline, keeps a very tight rein on things, adroitly mixing in tension, innuendo and dark humor to keep the drama at a satisfying low boil most of the way."

— Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
