"Landlocked might be one of the most intriguing films to come out of Nightstream 2021. It’s a film that blends genre and crosses the boundaries of fact and fiction. Its unique narrative style and the way it incorporates footage from the filmmaker’s life is fascinating in and of itself, but the moments it meditates on and the questions that it raises make it a fascinating watch" - Daily Dead 

“Paul Owens’ remarkable lo-fi creeper, Landlocked [...]”
“[...] There is, in fact, a world hidden within this film, a lingering caution about getting lost in loss and growing too attached to what once was. Here, there is no collective memory. Even the past, terrifyingly, has a mind of its own" - Fangoria

"LandLocked is a family affair of passion and DIY ingenuity that exemplifies the power of a new cinematic voice.” - Cine Niche

“It’s the kind of movie that heralds a special new voice, one that will make your new favorite horror movie in due time." - Crooked Marquee 

“This is a most spectacular exercise in family filmmaking, unlike anything I’ve watched before...Landlocked could be in a genre of its own making. As a horror, it’s striking. As a drama, it’s deeply affecting. As a memory, it’s far from fleeting. 5/5." - Moviegoing with Bill
