Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 2/5
Overall, there’s not enough sustained unease or a sense of dread or foreboding. Nor is there too much originality: I got flashes of John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place, and Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca ... Full Review

Devasheesh Pandey | News18: 3/5
Ghost Stories is experimental but not overwhelming. The directors have tied individual short films together with good production value and vision ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2.5/5
Tales Of Horror Have Never Been So Imperturbable. Let alone genuine jump scares, the film does not even eke out moments that could be deemed spine-chilling ... Full Review

Gautam Batra | Koimoi: 3/5
Dibakar Banerjee’s Soul-Shaking & Spine-Chilling Story Stands Out From The Rest. The two and half hour approx film works in half and disappoints equally ... Full Review

Swetha Ramakrishnan | FirstPost: 3/5
Dibakar Banerjee's political short film elevates an otherwise bland anthology that just isn't scary ... Full Review

Bilal Qureshi | The New York Times: 2/5
As with any samplers, however, there are some tastes better left forgotten and others one hopes will be expanded into fuller, even more terrifying forms ... Full Review

Karina Adelgaard | Heaven of Horror: 3/5
The anthology starts out pretty strong with a short film by director Zoya Akhtar. It has an intense vibe and creepiness that builds suspense wonderfully. It does feel a bit slow, but the ending of the first short film in Ghost Stories is very satisfying ... Full Review

Sudhir Srinivasan | The New Indian Express: 2.5/5
This horror anthology doesn’t frighten you as much as it should. Ultimately though, it all fizzles out into an underwhelming end that fails to shock or surprise, despite a few peaks of intrigue. Perhaps it’s the stifling effect of the horror genre, perhaps it’s the limited run time, but this is a criticism, I think, that can be largely cast on the anthology as a whole ... Full Review

Prejomon Sunny | The Week: 3/5
An anthology of horror shorts sans the horror. Much of the horror is orchestrated with the help of ominous music, great camerawork ... Full Review

Srivathsan Nadadhur | Binged: 2.5/5
Extremely Original Ideas Let Down by Their Vagueness ... Full Review

Delnaz Divecha | Book My Show: 2.5/5
Neither does it aggravate many phobias (except maybe Anurag Kashyap’s story) nor does the overall narrative feel pertinent. Dibakar Banerjee’s story stands out and could have rather been presented as a singular short film ... Full Review

Sanyukta Thakare | Filmi Beat: 2.5/5
Overall the runtime of 144 minutes feels even longer due to the slow stories and relaxed presence of the ghosts, which weren't actually there, except in the last story. But that wasn't scary either. Cartoon Network's Courage The Cowardly Dog, has felt scarier than this ... Full Review

IANS | ABP Live: 3.5/5
The Netflix Film Will Send A chill Down Your Spine. Sinister. Diabolic. Macabre. Wicked ... Full Review

Sukhpreet Kahlon | Cinestaan: 2.5/5
This Netflix anthology fails to capture the horror genre. The anthology film offers interesting stories and vivid characters but fails miserably at being scary ... Full Review

Antara Dasgupta | Maps of India: 3/5
Ghost Stories is eccentric and progressed a lot from detaching itself from the cliched method of stirring sex with horror. Instead, it has uplifted the genre with subjects like politics and communal violence in society ... Full Review

Hiba Bég | The Quint: 2.5/5
Ghost Stories was a disappointing watch because the talent involved makes you expect so much more. The stories keep building-up and result in nothing ... Full Review
