      John A Interesting conceptual flourishes, good performances and a horror aesthetic make Flanagan's early film watchable and unfortunately nothing more than that. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/23/24 Full Review Spitfyre 8 This was well done overall, for it being Flanagan's first feature with mostly a no-name cast, and it leaves us with lots to think about as an audience, so, not much more I can ask for. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/24 Full Review Nick L I really like Stana Katic, and she is the only person in this that has any ounce of charisma or personality. She is really good in this but all the other elements fail, Its a really great premise and has a lot of potential as a story line, but jesus christ, all the other characters are sooooo dull and one note the whole way through. Her husband Nick makes you want to pull your hair out hes so dull and the Boston Cop whos name i forget, is probably one of the worst actors and dullest written characters ever. Shame. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/01/24 Full Review Ricardo d Cansativo, lento, roteiro enrolado num drama simples de ser resolvido. Atuações medianas. Não sei como a crítica elogia este filme. Não desmerecendo o talento do diretor, que depois disso fez filmes muito bons, mas aqui, mesmo considerando o baixo orçamento, o básico, fica bem aquém. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 12/24/23 Full Review Ted B 4.0 is stars; Compulsive, in the sense of The Fugitive series, a real page turner. I'm real fan of Stana Katic. She adds depth to the action hero character. Can't wait to get started on Season Two. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/15/23 Full Review Vito P Good debut film, rather amateurish and predictable, but in which Flanagan already shows his directing, editing and staging skills in the paranormal subgenre of his horror films.

      Dennis Harvey Variety Absentia is very creepy, non-formulaic and more grounded in relatable personalities than the usual horror film filled with hottie victims and other stereotypes. Oct 27, 2015 Full Review Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh Suffers a bit from a low budget and underwhelming performances, but manages to take well-worn territory and find new spins on them to end up in an unexpected destination. Rated: 4/5 Sep 20, 2023 Full Review Eve Tushnet Patheos's pretty clear that Flanagan makes movies I want to watch... Jun 30, 2020 Full Review Jacob Hall Slashfilm Once you ease past the film's lack of polish, you find yourself drawn in. First, by the characters. And later, by the deeply sinister and horrible situation in which they find themselves snared. Jun 19, 2020 Full Review Andrew Mack ScreenAnarchy Director Mike Flanagan has quite the little horror gem in his hands here. Jun 19, 2020 Full Review Gary Collinson Flickering Myth Those seeking a slow-burning, intelligent and thought-provoking character-driven chiller should find plenty to enjoy. Rated: 3/4 Jun 19, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
