"Toronto based director Tricia Lee is turning out some of the best horror to emerge out of the Great White North. Her latest film “Silent Retreat” won Best Canadian Feature at Toronto After Dark and for good reason"
-- BLOODY DISGUSTING
"Definitely one of the best films at FrightFest 2016 Blood Hunters is that rare beast of a movie that offers tons of on edge entertainment while managing to be extremely intelligent and emotionally involving as well."
"A strong idea backed up with strong visual style, Blood Hunters is a genre fan’s dream, or more aptly, nightmare come true.”

“I used to have fantasies of taking a weeklong vow of silence at a rural retreat - that is, until I saw this chilling little number from Canadian director Tricia Lee”
"Silent Retreat beautifully blends supernatural horror with the terrors of the real world"
-- RUE MORGUE
"A tense little beast of a movie that has some powerfully terrifying moments interspersed with some even more impactful silences."

"As an independent director / producer playing in the horror space Lee is something of an anomaly within a Canadian industry that tends to direct available supports towards more 'high brow' efforts - "Horror is a little different than what the Canadian system normally funds so I've had to find my own way of doing it," she acknowledges - to say nothing of being a woman playing in what is very much a male dominated sandbox, and its precisely that female perspective that has drawn local icon Julian Richings - a familiar face popping up in projects ranging from big budget blockbuster Man Of Steel, to a recurring part as Death on Supernatural, to recent Sundance smash The Witch."
“(Lee’s) managed to make a satisfying genre splice that also happens to be one of the most cliche-free films of the year"

"Tricia Lee seems to be going from strength to strength and improving with every film she makes."
