Amy Handler from Film Threat called The Scenesters "a film that is provocative, intelligent, hilarious - and that moves so swiftly, that you're left gasping for more.". Scott Ross from NBC New York said "'The Scenesters' is a gutsy experiment that rewards the viewer's knowledge of Los Angeles, movies and TV with a funny and engaging hyper-meta crime story."  Nick W. from USA Today.com had wonderful things to say about the film saying "The Scenesters is the movie I keep telling my friends about. It's funny, inventive and unlike anything I've seen in long time"  After the premier of The Scenesters at the Austin Film Festival Sean O'Neal from The A.V. Club praised the film saying it was "A genuinely suspenseful whodunit about a team of wannabe filmmakers exploiting a rash of L.A. murders targeting hipsters...The Scenesters is definitely, if dryly, funny in its satirical take on fame-seeking indie-rock types—boosted by a literally killer soundtrack". Todd Gilchrist from Fearnet called the film "A compelling whodunit that manages to pack more of a punch than the latest retro-noir murder mystery, The Scenesters is a satisfying, successful look at predators and prey, hipsters and Hollywood dreamers, and films and filmmakers that doesn't purely chase its own tail - and better yet, doesn't make moviegoers chase it either... destined to become a cult classic."
