      Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News It's engrossing and well-made, but you'll need a strong stomach to get through it. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 22, 2021 Full Review Noel Murray Los Angeles Times Kavanagh and Matichak do a remarkable job of capturing an amped-up version of everyday parental paranoia. Mar 6, 2021 Full Review Simon Abrams RogerEbert.com You cannot watch Son without feeling a little sick to your stomach. Rated: 1/4 Mar 5, 2021 Full Review Jenn Adams Rue Morgue Magazine But hidden within Son’s familiar beats is a story about parenting while dealing with PTSD from sexual assault and the difficulty of caring for a child while struggling to care for yourself. Rated: B- Feb 18, 2023 Full Review Joel Fisher Battle Royale With Cheese Son is something many horror fans have seen before and that's where the problem lies. Because once you know where it's going then there are no surprises. Sep 13, 2021 Full Review Joey Magidson Awards Radar A little horror movie, Son is a solid genre offering.

      Ricardo d E dai você aposta que o filme é sobre vampiros e quebra a cara. Ele salta entre várias questões sem se aprofundar muito em nenhuma, mas acho que é proposital apenas para finalizar com um climax de suspense. E dai o que aprendemos com o filme? Que não importa o que as mães fazem, os filhos irão preferir os pais. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/20/24 Full Review James W Dark psychological horror with great acting that kept me immersed. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/19/23 Full Review Peter W Overall, it is a bloody, gross, supernatural story about a single mother who will do anything for her son, including digging up her past life as a member of a dark cult. Performances are fine, but the leads have moments of unconvincing dialogue and good tension. Son has a nice set-up as a horror movie but is generally vague in its plot details. The big reveal is highly predictable, and I also found it to be a massive letdown and disappointment. This film will undoubtedly have its followers, but sadly this didn't work for me as well as I would have preferred. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/29/23 Full Review Craig B A very tight supernatural thriller / horror, primarily centred around the love of a young mother for her afflicted son. Solid pacing, well-acted with some disturbing scenes makes for an engrossing movie for horror buffs. Worth checking out. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/10/23 Full Review Hugo S A young boy falls ill to a mysterious illness, developing an immense appetite for blood. His mother is willing to break all ethical barriers to keep her son alive. A mixed bag of different horror genres: cult, body disease and mental illness. The combined effect works well. Great acting from the young star, who fully convinces the viewer of his agonising suffering. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/23/23 Full Review stoner j Decent little cultish, vampirish horror movie with a cool ending. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
