      David W This was quite a challenging watch in many ways and I don't just mean it's slow Scandinavian slow burner pacing. It is brilliantly acted and that most rare of beasts, unique. It's a film I'm glad I watched as it did hold my attention throughout but wether I can say I actively enjoyed it is a different matter. I can certainly see why the professional critics liked this so much and conversely why your average movie watcher may well not. Definitely a polarising experience of a movie but one I'd recommend purely to see which camp you fall into. Be warned though, if you approach this expecting a straightforward horror movie per se then you'll most likely be dissapointed. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/23/24 Full Review Tim G Well that certainly was different! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/08/24 Full Review M7AMD A how the hell this thing got 7.0 rating, my biggest time-wasting movie i've had this year so far its so stupid and too damn dull, i just do get the story other than it being absolutely weird and slow, also the acting in the movie and how slow they speak to each other makes its even more painful to watch. stay away from the plague as far as you can I had to skip forward just to see its end and be done with it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Jeff M You'll often hear someone hyperbolically describing a movie by saying you've never seen anything like it. Well, when it comes to this Swedish film, currently available on Hulu, believe me, you've never seen anything like it. I don't even know where to begin with a review. I can't give it a full recommendation, but at the same time I am dying to hear what you all think about this. If you decide to take the dive, a few warnings. It is EXTREMELY slow - and this is coming from someone who loves slow, leisurely paced movies. If you only like movies that make sense at the end, give this a pass. And if the consumption of maggots and worms makes you ill, concentrate your attention elsewhere. But if you are in the mood for something different and unique and challenging, this is a movie about which you can be proud to say you took the plunge. My guess is that most people won't get past the first 30 minutes. Just between you and me, it took me two tries. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/24 Full Review Alec B It's really unlike anything you've ever seen before, although the really impressive thing is how Abbasi takes a plot that's pretty ludicrous and takes it seriously, finding an effective emotional core to the story.

      Ben Sachs Chicago Reader I found this compelling as I watched it, though I don't feel I gained much from the experience. Feb 29, 2020 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) Like a mating between the mind of David Cronenberg and something that crawled out of a compost heap. Rated: 4/5 Mar 10, 2019 Full Review Donald Clarke Irish Times The film huddles closely around a personality whose courage and determination invite great empathy. Rated: 5/5 Mar 8, 2019 Full Review Nathan Mattise Ars Technica The mysteries of Border reveal themselves slowly from here, but each one ratchets up the film's stakes in a delightful manner. Jul 28, 2021 Full Review Jason Adams My New Plaid Pants You ain't never seen nothing like it, folks. Hell you ain't never thought anything like it. Jul 2, 2021 Full Review Guillem Martinez Oya Cinematismo A great film with a great script that question if it is necessary the social reproduction of our societies.
