Scott Weinberg from eFilmCritic gave the film 4/4 stars, writing, "Jeff Burr's Straight Into Darkness starts out like a straight war flick, almost turns into a horror movie, slowly becomes a moving piece of drama, and spits you out on the other side both impressed with the end product...and more than a little shaken." Robert Koehler of Variety wrote, "Jeff Burr’s neo-gothic WWII drama Straight Into Darkness ends up resisting categorization. There’s pleasure to be had in watching a period war pic made with a personal touch and with a self-conscious pedigree, but this diminishes as Burr excessively lays on themes and action." Ian Jane from DVD Talk gave the film 3/5 stars, writing, "Straight Into Darkness is an interesting and at times almost surreal war film that does a good job of mixing horror movie elements with some serious drama. Unfortunately it gets a little buried under its own message but that doesn't mean it isn't worthwhile." Jon Condit from Dread Central awarded the film a score of 2.5 out of 5, calling it "fundamentally flawed", but commended the film's visuals.
