"The film works best in its moments of silence, with cinematographer Christopher Messina's striking images creating a palpable tension in that stifling stillness"- The Hollywood Reporter

"The assured direction extends out to the film's look, an aspect that's vital to why If There's A Hell Below works so effectively.  Taking full advantage of the spacious locations, Williams and cinematographer Christopher Messina create one painterly image after another, at times evoking Andrew Wyeth's Christina's World but with a more sinister edge." - Way Too Indie

"The film really guns it whenever Williams and cinematographer Christopher Messina work in sync to create an eerie, barren landscape that ominously suggests danger always lurks around the corner or in the rear-view mirror.  The film gives off a Blood Simple vibe." - Eat Drink Films

The genius of Williams's film is how it takes this very familiar premise, sets it in near real-time across a visually striking, equally vast and intimate space, then fills it with the kind of existential dread and introspection that lends itself more to an Abbas Kiarostami film. - Twitch Film
