Critical reception for Almost Human has been mixed. The Torontoist rated the film at 3 1/2 stars out of 5. Much of the criticism centered on issues that Fearnet's Scott Weinberg considered "'first-timer' problems", such as the movie's acting, repetition, and slowness in the second act. However, as a whole the reviewers generally enjoyed the film and believed that Begos did show future potential. In contrast, ReelFilm was more critical of the film and stated that while it had a "watchable vibe", the movie "squandered the promise of its setup to become just another generic, shot-on-a-shoestring horror effort."
