According to Première:

“It is undoubtedly missing here the roughness that one hoped for with at the helm a director like Pascal Laugier, hexagonal specialist of the gore and the jitters. But the director of Martyrs and Ghostland has obviously remained in the nails of a great entertainment public.” 3/5

According to Large Screen:

“To love They Were Ten, you don’t have to know anything about Agatha Christie’s work, not be the biggest slasher lover, and not be afraid of the smelly slices of some post Me Too works. Too bad Pascal Laugier was only commissioned to produce, knowing his work, he could have made it all a joyous massacre. ” 2.5 / 5

According to Télé Z:

“Pascal Laugier, master of horror film with the excellent Martyrs, has taken real liberties with the novel by Agatha Christie. The suspense is very present despite some heavy strings and other blunders. A half-transformed essay.” 2.5 / 5

According to Télérama:

“Entertainment that respects the codes of the genre but fails to terrify and surprise.” 1.5 / 5
