Reception

Variety film critic Joe Leydon reflected on Hours as “an ingeniously simple setup is cunningly exploited for maximum suspense.” Film critic Steve Pulaski of Influx Magazine stated, “Hours works because, once more, it proves a little story can go a long way thematically and that bigger, deeper themes can surface when there’s small-scale filmmaking at hand.”
