      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It may not deliver as many straight-up scares as genre fans expect, but Agnes takes a gratifyingly unusual approach to well-worn territory.

      Kyle I don't believe any of these positive "critic"reviews even watched this movie. They HAVE to be paid for their positive reviews This was one of the worst movies I've seen. It started off really good. It seemed like it was going to be a priest exorcism horror movie with a touch of comedy, but then half way into the story line, it flashed forward and focused on a totally different characters life. It ceased being a horror movie, stopped having any humor, and it ended without explaining what happened in the original storyline. This was easily one of the worst movies I've ever seen. It makes me wonder if AI wrote the script for this movie. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/07/24 Full Review James R Halfway through the movie it becomes... a completely different movie. And not in a good way. It had potential but the major plotline is resolved (poorly) half way through the movie, and at the end there are still too many unanswered questions. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/24 Full Review Joe M Gawd awful. What an absolute waste of time. How do some of these movies get financed. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/12/23 Full Review jessica H This was an exorcist movie like Signs was an alien movie. It uses the genre as a means to tell a story about faith while flitting between weak horror and stale dialog that borders on dtale comedy. A sarcastic priest with no faith, a house of hypocritical nuns, and a story about loss all ended just to say "god is the little things". The possession is never resolved, the scares are lacking, and the effects were also really poor, like cup on a string floating poor. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 10/03/23 Full Review Stan C This film is the kind of risk an "open-minded" (untalented) director makes when they don't have enough talent or material to make a complete movie. There are two terrible films here, blended only by the actors - clearly not the script. And the best part? There's no resolution - not to either story! The trailer and splash art convey a religious thriller where the forces of good must battle a possessed nun. This is only a bare "first story" - the semi-resolution happens off screen and is revealed in the second story. Also, it is made quite evident the director is *gasp* not a fan of religion. The tone of some scenes is wildly inappropriate and serves only to make all the religious cast look like idiots or worse. If you're looking for a coherent movie with a plot, a resolution of any kind whatsoever, or a movie that won't leave you in perplexing anger, look elsewhere. This movie is only for those who passionately hate religion, think convoluted plots are "a brave risk," or are related to the director. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Terrible discontinuity, with know context for the total abrupt shift in storyline. Imagine you’re watching a movie and about halfway in you randomly switch to a completely different movie; that’s what Agnes is like. It abruptly stops in the middle of one story and starts a different story with know explanation for what or why such a thing is happening! VERY ANNOYING!

      Richard Whittaker Austin Chronicle A strange and beautiful tale of sex, religion, and dysfunction at the Carmelite convent of Santa Teresa. Dec 12, 2021 Full Review Yolanda Machado TheWrap A choppy, muddled mess of a movie that has its own identity crisis of what it wants to be or to show. Dec 11, 2021 Full Review David Ehrlich indieWire For all of its ruffled habits and bleeding eyes, Agnes is far sadder than it is scary (quite, versus not at all), and often sillier than it is sad. Rated: B Dec 11, 2021 Full Review Nuha Hassan The UnderSCENE Reece ambitiously flips the movie into a heart-bending moment that focuses on the life of Mary, the one who needs special care from her superiors. Jul 20, 2023 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies While the movie tries to be clever with its dramatic shift in tone and completely new direction, it ends up feeling like two different films connected by the barest of threads. Even worse, neither story gets any kind of satisfying ending. Rated: 2/5 Aug 16, 2022 Full Review Jade Budowski Decider Agnes, for all its quirkiness, is memorable as hell, delivering something truly unique and surprisingly poignant.
