Creepy setting, pacing, tone, and psychological suspense….Yet Observance is simply not an in-your-face ghost movie. The limited haunting episodes help create the foreboding tone that permeates the film and are more a reflection of the dark psychological and emotional state of the character than an attempt to scare the audience. And when the film takes a sudden, jolting turn near the end, don’t expect anything that happened prior to be explained.” – Boys, Bears & Scares

“Observance is well-executed psychological horror film. It’s greatest strengths are the cinematography, coupled with beautiful and original graphic matches and Lindsay Farris’s gripping performance.  Letting the audience leave without the definite answers that the characters had been seeking and failed to find is a great move for a psychological horror movie. It opens the possibility for repeat viewings and leaves a great deal up to interpretation.” –
