"A major announcement of a new talent." - RogerEbert.com
"Luz is a love letter to vintage horror in both style and substance, from Waskow’s eerie, synth-soaked score, to Paul Faltz’s flat 16mm cinematography (complete with the natural crackles and flaws of the filmstrip), to the story’s roots in an all-girls’ boarding school and the uniquely frightening things that can happen within those walls. Based on the retro touches to the production design and the fact that Rossini carries a pager instead of a cell phone, Luz appears to take place at some undefined moment in the past; this lack of certainty only adds to the film’s disorienting atmosphere." - Film Inquiry
"Luz is only a little over an hour-long, yet manages to be one of the most compelling subversions of the possession genre I’ve ever seen. The score by Simon Waskow calls back to early Cronenberg and Carpenter films. The sets look like something out a Fassbinder film, and the script could have been written by Lars Von Trier on a good day." - Film Threat
