      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      A needless remake that quickly loses sight of the themes that elevated the original, this is a Jacob's Ladder that leads straight to nowhere.

      Ank C The movie had a lot of suspense, mystery and horror. And the actors gave standout performaces. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/27/19 Full Review Alex C Jacob's DEI Ladder. Unimaginably terrible in every way. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/24 Full Review isa e another pointless e boot, some movies are too iconic, this was a hot mess Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Have to agree with most reviews here - the original was one of my favourite films that I still remember vividly after watching it so many years ago - so I was intrigued to see what this remake would add to the classic. I loved the original ending and shocked by the conclusion to Jacob's journey - I was also shocked with the remake - shocked at how bad it was - shocked at taking the key component of the original storyline and changing it be a diminished, unoriginal, lame ending, shocked at the direction, the acting and the audacity to give it the same name as the original - terribly embarrassing to all involved. Just hope the original gets some more plays as a result of this to give those filmmakers some more credit - going to watch the 1990 version again just to get this 2019 abomination out of my system! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review steve d Telegraphs every move it is going to make and is really dumb. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member An insult to the original, this 2019 remake doesn't have anywhere near the same feel as the Adriene Lyne classic Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Meagan Navarro Bloody Disgusting This reimagining is more focused on paranoia and the relationship between Jacob and Isaac than it is creating a terrifying metaphor for PTSD, and the horror element is largely forgotten. It doesn't really offer any depth beyond that, either. Rated: 2/5 Aug 23, 2019 Full Review Brian Tallerico RogerEbert.com Only the commitment from the always-solid Michael Ealy saves it from being one of the worst movies of the year. Rated: 1/4 Aug 23, 2019 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Variety The new "Jacob's Ladder" plays like a half-hearted sketch of the movie it could have been. Aug 23, 2019 Full Review Emma Wolfe SpookyAstronauts This was disrespectful... not a film that can stand by itself. Rated: 3/10 Oct 27, 2020 Full Review Mark H. Harris Black Horror Movies While it's a competent production overall, Jacob's Ladder redux is ultimately pointless, just an inferior spin on the original that is the latest in a long line of unnecessary, ineffectual horror remakes. Rated: 2.3/5 Nov 15, 2019 Full Review Jak-Luke Sharp Film Inquiry There is no love or admiration of this remake in the writing or material provided. Writers Jeff Buhler and Sarah Thorpe showcase no real interest in evolving the content nor adapting anything to the present day, even if it is set within it.
