“Amidst a sea of films attempting to recapture the glories of bygone exploitation fare, Discopath gets it right—a swift, satisfying salute to the slasher cinema of the ’70s and early ’80s, with a premise it’s hard to believe no one employed back in the day.”
– Michael Gingold, Fangoria


"...a fantastic feature debut for Gauthier. He mixes some outrageous comedic moments with some incredible scenes of horror to create a 70s inspired slasher exploitation film like nothing you would have ever seen before."
- Scream Magazine


"Holy cow, I loved this film!"
- Ain't It Cool News


"Gauthier sports a love and appreciation of horror as Duane knocks off his victims, creating some righteous disco-inspired death sequences – my favorite being an artistically haunting shot showing a dead female underneath a glass dance floor – which keeps action fresh and fluid."
- We Got This


" electrifying and blood-soaked nod to the golden age of Italian giallo and the films of John Carpenter and Brian De Palma."


"Against all the odds, Discopath is gloriously entertaining stuff. It effortlessly evokes the spirit of the movies it’s merrily homaging from its pleasingly over-the-top plot to its fiercely inventive death sequences."
- Starburst Magazine


"Everything about this movie looks and feels right for the 70’s era, from the clothes right on down to the great soundtrack. The movie also feels dirty and gritty, capturing the underbelly of the glitz and glam quite well."
