Blackout is a fantastic film. the story is solid, the characters are well-realized and believable and the werewolf moments are positively brutal.” – Daily Dead

Every aspect of blackout — its pacing, its beautiful character work, its very specific structure — seems to gleefully abandon expectation and convention, and trusts that audiences will take this sad/funny trip crafted by a wholly original cinematic voice.” – Fangoria

There aren’t a lot of filmmakers out there who’ve been making horror as smart and emotionally gripping as Larry Fessenden over the last several decades, and blackout shows us that he has no intention of slowing down.” – Screen Anarchy

Larry Fessenden’s film is a work of fascinatingly conflicted, far-reaching curiosity” – Slant
