Carfax Abbey – The Horror Film Database USA:  „A well-made, atmospheric chiller, this German made-for-TV slasher is an absolute gem of a film.  Reminiscent of an Argento effort, director Robert Sigl creates a taut chiller with intense, edge-of-your-seat death scenes, eerily effective music and soundtracks, inventive plot twists and stylish direction.”

Sean Axmaker’s Expert Guide to Video and DVD USA:  “Well acted and nicely executed.”

Epinions com:  “This German gem is highly recommended for the great cast, outstanding plot and fantastic cinematography.  Definitely a must see.  A whopping five stars!”

AWCM Reviews:  “Director Robert Sigl does a competent job of building suspense.”


Eyeball Compendium:  "Effective Gothic chiller, resonating with images of unease and sexual malaise, ripe with atmosphere and understated menace."

Video Watchdog USA:  "Under the direction of Robert Sigl, LAURIN is a kind of connoisseur piece: well made, sensitively acted, fraught with moodiness, atmosphere, lovely music and unsettling images that lodge themselves immediately in the most inward lobes of the brain."

Bangkok Post:  "The movie has an unsettling but delicate and poetic mood that makes it different from any other film about childhood."


The Evening Standard:  "Inventive, gory, scary and funny often all at the same time."

The New York Daily News:  "The most imaginative Sci-Fi since Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy."

The Toronto Star: "A truly amazing journey into new science fiction territory."

SFX UK: "4 Stars = very good (for GIGA SHADOW, directed by Robert Sigl)
