      Brian Tallerico It's not going to be anyone's favorite new horror film this holiday season, but it's a solid enough start to the month when temperatures drop and it becomes cooler to tell ghost stories. Rated: 2.5/4 Oct 5, 2018 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies Several smart decisions turns it into a surprisingly effective genre movie. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 23, 2022 Full Review Alix Turner Ready Steady Cut Jackson and his reluctant sister Angela offer a fake ghostbusting service to "cleanse" the homes of gullible Scots. But when Angela starts to see and hear things, is she losing it, or are there really ghosts? And if there are, what could they want? Rated: 4/5 Feb 2, 2021 Full Review Jordy Sirkin Jordy Reviews It While the premise of Malevolent might not be all that different than other general haunted house films, it still pulls you in as a viewer. Rated: 3/5 Jan 2, 2021 Full Review Charles Koplinski Reel Talk with Chuck and Pam A pleasant surprise as this horror film proves to be an uncommonly smart entry in the genre. Rated: 3.0/4.0 Nov 14, 2020 Full Review Andrew Wyatt The Lens By the time the film takes a hard left into grisly serial-killer territory, most of the suspense, pathos, and personality have long slipped away. Rated: C- Dec 7, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Sammer A what's wrong with people, this is a good movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/10/24 Full Review Kevin M The two best cast are Florence Pugh (Oppenheimer) and Scott Chambers (Winnie-The-Pooh BLOOD and HONEY 2). The horror atmospheric isn't the best, other characters seems forced too much, the killers mother and son duo are definitely the worst killers, the three triplet girls are trying to stop the killers. That is why they're helping instead of investigating. The mothers ear drums were positively the weakest kill. Scott Chambers and Florence Pugh are two best cast. This is a one-time pass and won't watch this again. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/26/24 Full Review Desyane M Horrible. Don't waste your time Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/14/23 Full Review Frderique A I liked the ending, was not as bad as horror movies usually are. But overall, not the best movie out there. Nothing else to say Rated 3 out of 5 stars 10/05/23 Full Review Matt N It had the promise and the pieces in place to be a pretty solid supernatural thriller, but then it just got dumb, and tried too hard to be shocking. It left me feeling like I could have spent the last hour and a half watching something better. Because there's better supernatural haunting films out there, better shock horror out there, and better Florence Pugh movies out there. I'd give this one a pass (as in "pass it up", not "passing grade".) Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 10/02/23 Full Review Nick K I can't even put into words how bad this movie is. Horrible! Makes 0 sense, everything about it sucks Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
