      Phuong Le Guardian For those who enjoy period details as well as practical horror effects, there is much to be mined here, such as the meticulously recreated village and the impressively gnarly makeup applied on the victims of the malevolent spirits. Rated: 3/5 Oct 24, 2022 Full Review Jessica Kiang Variety Even a town overrun by the dead should feel more alive than this one. Dec 20, 2021 Full Review Anton Bitel Sight & Sound a charming if creepy promise of gradual community recovery. Aug 22, 2021 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage Post Mortem melds a pandemic, the fear of contagion, legends, and superstitions into an anti-climatic story but in doing so, it eschews the familiar and boring paths of Hollywood-style horror... [Full review in Spanish] Jun 22, 2023 Full Review Rob Aldam Backseat Mafia "..having all the hallmarks of a good old-fashioned ghost story, Post Modern immerses the viewer in its chilling period atmosphere." Apr 11, 2022 Full Review Joe Lipsett Queer.Horror.Movies. [Despite being] light on story and feat. an uncomfortable surrogate father/daughter relationship, Post Mortem is beautiful and haunting. Featuring top notch visual effects and stunt work, the film features no shortage of memorable sequences Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 16, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Don L This was a great movie. Very original, shot in Eastern Europe (Hungary) . The actors, the camera work, the direction, and the story are all superb. Why haven't I heard about this movie. I watched it on Netflix in Hungary because I recently moved here so was looking for Hungarian movies with English sub-titles to help me learn the language. This movie, literally, blew me away. So very unique and original. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 09/25/23 Full Review Dorogi N The worst horror film i have ever seen. The effects in it are horrible. It looks like a parody. Beside that the story was boring. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/05/23 Full Review Balint H You would think 1st that it's just another horror movie featuring the same canned moves but you are pleasantly (?) surprised as you watch on. Many unexpected, original, and very cruel scary scenes of the evil doings of poltergeist ghosts. The one thing I missed is the more realistic reactions of the main actors. In such circumstances they must have crapped their pants but most of the time they just look slightly scared of the truly evil and devilish happenings. Visual effects outshine the budget, while the actors are pretty good playing their characters especially Anna. Tomas should have been less fish blooded as truly ghastly things happen to them. The ending has a nice hollywood like twist that takes away from all the loathing. Good movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/13/23 Full Review Ree R Thoughtful cinematography lends to the cold and barren landscape, illustrating just how isolated the villagers were (there's a scene shot in winter of a stark white church silhouetted against the heavy, night sky which is truly chilling). The special effects were not perfect, but this added to the creep factor and sometimes less is more. It reminds me of "A Dark Song" which despite a small budget, also gave me a satisfying scare. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/28/23 Full Review Kristie S probably would have been better in the original language with subtitles, the dub over was terrible, also definite pedo vibes from the main character. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/09/23 Full Review prawnda s film, set, and costume quality are all quite good. otherwise: the dubs are pretty bad, the script doesn't always seem to properly translate to english, there is little to no scary content in favor of a lot of sort of dark/ominous shots of people awkwardly posing pretending to be dead but visibly moving by accident. some of the special effects re: the ghosts are alright, and a lot of the practical effects used to make corpses or wounds on peoples faces were pretty good, but there just wasn't any real tension or any real stakes or connection to the cast. it's just a lot of the protagonist running into a room to find some contorted and/or dead people over and over, and doesn't come to much fruition nor does it have anything interesting to say.
