Reason magazine called Viva an "uncannily precise rendition of the look, sound, mood, and arch dialogue" of seventies sexploitation films, with "high-key, pseudo-Technicolor lighting and spare, colorful set design."
Her latest film, The Love Witch, is a twist on classic serial killer films, featuring a female killer who kills through calculated sexuality, causing her male victims to fall too much in love. Richard Brody of The New Yorker said of The Love Witch, "Biller puts genre to the test of do-it-yourself artistry, and puts feminist ideology itself to the test of style. The film pulsates with furious creative energy throughout, sparking excitement and giddy amazement that it even exists." In May 2016, The Love Witch was acquired for distribution by Oscilloscope Laboratories.
The Love Witch was included in many lists for the best films of 2016, including The New Yorker and Indiewire. It won in a tie for the Trailblazer Award and Best Costume Design at the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle Awards, and also won the Michael Cimino Best Film Award at the American Independent Film Awards.The Love Witch is listed as #30 on Rotten Tomatoes' list of the Top 100 Horror Movies.
Biller considers herself a feminist filmmaker, and consciously explores feminist themes throughout her work, including an attempt to insert the female gaze into cinema.
