Critical reception for Horror has been predominantly positive, and DVD Verdict called it "a distinctive, compelling and occasionally brilliant work". Scott Weinberg commented that the movie would not likely appeal to people who predominantly viewed mainstream horror films but that "those with some patience and a taste for something small and different will certainly earn some solid creeps from this one." Film Threat also gave Horror a positive review and praised the films pacing, as they felt that this enabled Tomaselli to build up the movies "creepy suspense". In contrast, AMCS FilmCritic panned the movie, commenting that "Horror has plenty of scary moments, but itâ€™s so confusing itâ€™s hard to be genuinely frightened."
