Kevin Scott of Exclaim! rated it 5/10 stars and wrote that the film is repetitive has "gruesome creativity" and "twisted exuberance". Trace Thurman of Bloody Disgusting rated it 1.5/5 stars and wrote, "The film's biggest issue is that it thinks it's hip, cool and funny; but it is none of those things." Matt Boiselle of Dread Central rated it 3.5/5 stars and wrote, "Aside from a few off-the-map plot stretches and fizzled attempts at black comedy, The Scarehouse steps ahead of the torture-porn genre for a brief moment". Ben Bussey of Brutal as Hell wrote, "Gavin Michael Booth's film is out to provide a bit more than your textbook slasher/torture movie scares – and largely succeeds in doing so." Mark L. Miller of Ain't It Cool News wrote, "Full of unexpected turns and twists, The Scarehouse is not your typical revenge film. It takes some inventive kills and some interesting plot swerves and injects two characters played by two fantastic actresses." Horror Society rated it 8/10 stars and wrote of its use of dual female antagonists, "The Scarehouse breaks the traditional horror film mold and keeps the new experiences going, too."
The Scarehouse won Best Feature Film at the New York City Horror Film Festival.
