"There is ample beauty as well as stark fear in d.p. Othello J. Ubalde’s striking forest imagery, especially the unusually sharp nocturnal photography." -Dennis Harvey, Variety.
"Camera movement tells the story, accentuates the comedy, and exudes a show-don't-tell savvy that feels the work of a very experienced filmmaker. " -Kurt Halfyard, Screen Anarchy.
"The visuals are beautiful and unsettling, and it is always impressive when a cinematographer can create such compelling night scenes with a single light source. Othello Jay Ubalde does just that and, along with some stunning nature photography and disorienting camera angles, the film becomes both ominous and sublime at the same time." -RMPIXIE, Cinema Axis.
"...there’s no question James’s mental state is deteriorating due to forces both internal and external. Such a condition can only lead to striking visuals, and Juras, along with his cinematographer, Othello Ubalde, are happy to deliver." -Amanda Waltz, The Film Stage.
"The cinematography by Othello J. Ubalde—also making his feature debut—takes full advantage of the forest’s ethereal beauty and intimidating vastness..." -C.J. Prince, WAYTOOINDIE.COM

"The film, ts should also be mentioned, is staggeringly well-filmed. When James enters the woods the camera takes on this beautiful objective quality, gliding through the woods, not focusing on anything. The focus is as deep as the Marianas Trench, allowing us to take in these full, beautiful frames of untouched wilderness, beautiful and daunting at the same time." -Thomas O'Connor, FORGETTHEBOX.NET
"Aided by gorgeous cinematography by Othello J. Ubalde (also making his feature debut), a series of slow-motion shots, and a haunting soundtrack by Adam Osinki and Tomas Jirku – The Interior is one of the more interesting genre debuts this year." - Ricky D, SOUNDONSIGHT.ORG
