Here's what critics are saying about The Human Race:
"Inspirational and wickedly cruel."
Michael Ryan, Sound On Sight
"The Human Race is a winner through and through...I have never seen a film play out so well in a theatre."
"Never a dull moment throughout the movie"
Simon Rother, Horror-Movies.Ca
"Paul Hough's impressive debut literally hits the ground running and never lets up from start to jaw-dropping finish. An extremely effective high concept thriller that delivers geysers of blood and thoughtful meditations on the brutality of human nature in equal measure. Paul McCarthy-Boyington, Eddie McGee, Trista Robinson and T. Arthur Cottam lead an extraordinary ensemble through an adrenaline-pumping 90-minute gauntlet, a dash that leaves its audience as breathless as the onscreen contestants. Dark, bloody and daring, a Hunger Games for the gorehound set."
