"Samantha Aldana’s short is beautifully shot and does well to build up tension whilst keeping our alien visitors largely in the shadows, adding to their mystique...." - Bloody Flicks

"With outstanding visuals and an incredibly engaging story, “Angels” is beautifully shot, well-acted, and spellbinding. More unnerving than overtly scary, this seven-minute film is nevertheless quite a masterful work of short horror filmmaking." - Morbidly Beautiful
