"Malcolm Mills. If it were possible, I'd have a rider in every adaptation that he gets to play one of the villains."
- Laird Barron, three-time Shirley Jackson award-winning author of Blood Standard and Occultation, on Twitter re: They Remain (2018), feature film based on his novella "--30--"
"The performances in Mama’s Boy are killer, but the film wouldn’t have been the same without Malcolm Mills. If I could nominate or give an Oscar to him for best performance of the 2018, I would. Mills gives all of himself to the role, emotionally and physically. I would compare his work to the outstanding performance given by A Quiet Place‘s Emily Blunt and Hereditary‘s Toni Collette. Yes, it was really that good. Raw, emotional, and heartbreaking."
- Tori Danielle, PopHorror, reviewing Samantha Kolesnik's Mama's Boy (2018)
"Mills is a revelation in the role of Joshua turning what could have been a caricature into a believable, sympathetic young man. His every action seems to be a plea for connection combined with the revulsion of the only kind of love he knows."
- Waylon Jordan, iHorror.com, reviewing Samantha Kolesnik's Mama's Boy (2018)
"Mills’ performance in such a short film is phenomenal. I have seen bigger named actors do mediocre jobs in films and not touch on the talent and raw emotion that he puts out in this."
- D. D. Crowley, 1428 Elm.com, reviewing Samantha Kolesnik's Mama's Boy (2018)
"Joshua (Malcolm Mills) definitely deserves a healthy round of applause. He monologues throughout most of the film and his acting is undoubtedly the cornerstone of the short."
- Wormwood, Nevermore Horror, reviewing Samantha Kolesnik's Mama's Boy (2018)
"Mills has a standout performance in this film as he goes from the innocent boy next door to a heartless mobster... Mills handily shows us the spectrum of characters he is able to portray with uncanny believability. " - Pamela Powell, Reel Honest Reviews, on Career Opportunities in Organized Crime (2016)
"Mills' beguiling presence onstage and mental presence in the writing is a world that you could live in forever... a young Pinter with a broader sense of humor." - Guy Yedwab of "Culture Future" on Shakespeare the Dead (Pipeline Theatre, '10)
"An intersection of Kafkaesque paranoia, old-movie whimsy (and the best satires of it)... Writer Alex Mills (who also plays the Stranger) is adept at gently breaking some rules of narrative structure while adhering to others." - Clinton Orman or NYTheater.com on Shakespeare the Dead (Pipeline Theatre, 2010)
