Wrote Mark Hodgson in Twitch: "Dorm is likely to get caught up in the latest wave of Asian horror films from Thailand. But it's not a horror film, so much as a ghost story. Despite the young cast, it's certainly not childish - it has an uncomfortably dark side, reminiscent of Stand By Me, that makes it unsuitable for a younger audience. Anyhow, while I can't quite categorise it, I can say that it's the best Thai film that I've seen so far... [A] beautifully shot film, with finely-judged performances."
Adds Variety's Richard Kuipers: "A gentle horror movie about a shy boy at a strict boarding school, Dorm is a top-tier Thai fantasy with export stamped all over it. Aside from minor inconsistencies in its mid-section, this elegant mood piece forges a meaningful relationship between the supernatural and its central characters' guilt and loneliness. Making his solo bow after co-directing 2003 local smash My Girl, helmer Songyos Sugmakanan is a talent to watch."
