"[The Canadian filmmaker trio of the Turbo Kid fame] RKSS heads back to the Reagan Era for their genre-defying Summer of 84, a murder mystery/slasher/coming-of-age comedy hybrid that confidently explores the triumphs and tribulations of being a teenager, all while delivering a horrifying tale that conjures up some really fun scares along the way. --- Evoking the spirit of movies like Stand by Me, The ’Burbs, Silver Bullet (minus the werewolves), and The Goonies, and there are even a few hat tips to the likes of John Carpenter and Kurt Russell thrown in to boot. That being said, the trio never leans too heavily into the familiarity of these films, making Summer of 84 into something that stands firmly on its own two cinematic feet, especially when the third act kicks in and the script from Matt Leslie and Stephen J. Smith takes a few ballsy left turns that left me genuinely shocked." - Heather Wixson / Daily Dead

"A piece of genre movie perfection" - Mary C. Russell / Nightmarish Conjurings

"You'll leave this film shaken" - Jonathan Barkan / Dread Central

"Most movies don’t have the balls to do what Summer of 84 does" - Anthony Ray Bench / Film Threat

"Following in the footsteps of Andy Muschietti’s IT update and Netflix’s Stranger Things" - Katie Driscoll / CineVue
