“...a thriller/psychological drama that plays like Stephen King meets The Crying Game...screened to a receptive, sizable crowd Sunday night.” – Here! Magazine

“Almost as mysterious as a shadow, The Shadows blends suspense, light horror, violence and identity theft into an intriguing thriller.” - Gregg Shapiro, Chicago Free Press

“Filmmaker Guillermo R. Rodriguez seems to have been inspired by Secret Window and the long tradition of chillers featuring identity switches, split personalities, and doppelgangers...to pull off his gender-bending twists.”- The Chicago Reader

"There are some movies that are beautiful to watch... The Shadows is one of them" - Cinema Pride
