"An entirely new and refreshing take on the zombie genre...directed with a delicate and gentle hand, Followed is probably the most unexpected horror surprise I’ve seen in quite a while."
- Ain't it Cool News.com
"[Followed] redefines the undead as social waste, returning the genre to progressive social commentary."
- Fotogramas Magazine (Spain)
"Kicklighter fashions a complex narrative using [Will] McIntosh’s fine writing as its foundation. Followed stays with you."
- Jonathan W. Hickman, The Daily Film Fix/Rotten Tomatoes Critic
"A delectable short film with a stellar cast that ignites the story with a human touch. Everything from the first scene swooping over the lavish stage of a unifying rally, to the endingʻs most endearing moments, Kicklighter provides a rich visual story that complements McIntosh’s intelligent short."
- James Stanford, This Coast Magazine
"A social commentary that could mean 100 different kinds of injustice to 100 different spectators."
- Sean Windham, IMDb User
