Critical reception:

Critical reception for Preservation has been mixed. Dread Central and Fangoria both praised the movie, and Fangoria commented that it "largely succeeds as a swift and scary survival thriller." In contrast, Slant Magazine and Film School Rejects both panned the movie overall, with Film School Rejects writing "The cast does good work, the cinematography is attractive and even the score delivers, but while the direction is (mostly) fine Denham’s script throws it all away through a non-stop assault of horror movie 101 cliches and inanity."
