”Von Trier’s Antichrist meeting Groundhog Day”
– Martin Kudlac / ScreenAnarchy

”Effective piece of grief horror”
– Keith Uhlich / The Hollywood Reporter

”Avoids gross-out shivers in favor of the quiet torture of expecting death behind every tree”
– Amy Nicholson / Variety

”A keenly-observed adult fairy tale in which grief, guilt and blame bite harder than any big bad wolf”
– Nikki Baughan / Screen International

 

”Writer-director Johannes Nyholm’s fable about grief is at once brutal and childlike, a horror-show that hums along to a nursery rhyme that gives “Koko-di Koko-da” its name. Not that children should be allowed anywhere near Nyholm’s bloody nihilism, where even his handmade cartoons of a bunny family bouncing around a monochromatic forest could give a kid nightmares. —

In this heightened allegory, everything is mossy with symbolism, even a shot of a spider weaving a trap. Nyholm could make a great, purist horror film if he was interested. He can definitely set a mood. His forest is so thick with suspense, he get a surprised scream just from letting loose a white cat. ” – Amy Nicholson / Variety
