      Adam Nayman The Ringer Steady interlacing of generational resentment with supernatural menace-each feeding, zombie-like, off the other-gives The Dark and the Wicked a subtext that's almost strong enough to offset its largely generic scares. May 3, 2021 Full Review Cath Clarke Guardian There is possibly not a single scary moment here that will be new to horror fans, but Bertino directs with such technical flair that I yelped at most of them - and half-missed the others, eyes squeezed tight shut. Rated: 3/5 Feb 24, 2021 Full Review Becca James Chicago Reader The Dark and the Wicked is a relentless ride through the stages of grief and guilt. Feb 17, 2021 Full Review Paul Lê Nightmare on Film Street What Bertino ultimately delivers is a time capsular movie with an enduring, if not routine, story. Rated: 8/10 Jul 23, 2023 Full Review Jason Shawhan Nashville Scene I can't think of another American film propelled by such razor-sharp and hopeless fatalism, but there will be more. Sep 10, 2021 Full Review Audrey Fox JumpCut Online Relentless and brutal, The Dark and the Wicked builds a pervasive sense of dread that reaches almost unbearable peaks in its torment of the estranged, emotionally repressed family featured within.

      David This was absolutely a hidden gem for horror movies. It had me on the edge of my seat the entire movie. I havent seen a great horror picture like this in a while. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/16/20 Full Review Paul A Evil, despair, shadow. Ugh. Scary film in a deeply wicked way. Not your run of the mill horror film. Wow impressive. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/13/20 Full Review Diego No point o the movie this is literally trash I’m sorry Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/09/20 Full Review Molly V Loved it! Creepy and very well done horror film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/07/20 Full Review Liam C I went into this movie with low expectations mainly because I read it was a slow burn. Is it slow? Yes but not painfully so (coming from someone who can not stand slow burns). It does a pretty good job of keeping your attention. Looks like a lot of the complaints are from people that were promised a great horror movie, therefore, they were disappointed. I wouldn't say "great" but I do feel like its worth a watch. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/07/24 Full Review Kara A this is the movie that made me sign up for this website. No idea why it's so highly rated, it's just a bland setup, followed by 6-8 youtube-style horror shorts that could be scary if they came to any meaningful conclusion but they ALWAYS end one of three ways: 1) it was just a dream, 2) it was just a hallucination, or 3) it was real but the spooky ghoul just vanishes with an overly loud musical cue. I straight up did not care if a single character lived or died. on par with the Bye Bye Man in terms of quality, but didn't get meme status because it's so boring that you forget about it the second the vague & unsatisfying ending exits to the sound of another annoyingly loud ~spooky~ musical boom Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/31/24 Full Review Read all reviews
