Rotten: There are many things absent from this found-footage horror movie, including suspense, logic, and originality.
- Chuck Wilson, Village Voice, Tuesday, July 2, 2013
Rotten: Mundane conversations and outings drag on while the central mystery takes baby steps forward, suggesting that a shorter running time or a more developed script might have better served the originality of the premise.

Rotten: It's been 15 years - can we stop remaking "The Blair Witch Project" already?
- Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Thursday, July 4, 2013
Perhaps it's because I'm a sucker for alien-abduction films, but I thoroughly enjoyed Absence, which follows a pregnant woman whose fetus disappears because of possibly alien reasons. While not entirely original, Absence still manages to bring something new to the found-footage alien-abduction sub-genre. A slow-building, somewhat clever, and creepy film, Absence will possibly delight fans who still enjoy the found-footage genre.
