      Leslie Felperin Guardian There are flaws, sure, and logical lacunae here and there, but it lingers in the memory long after the final credits roll. Rated: 3/5 Jan 17, 2023 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com This one slips its claws under the skin and then refuses to retract, latching on in such a way that this vicious chiller leaves a lasting scar. Rated: 3/4 Dec 19, 2022 Full Review Nick Allen RogerEbert.com The Harbinger is the kind of horror movie that becomes personal for each viewer; if one is not afraid of its story's more tangible concepts, Mitton does a credible and careful job of evoking the lasting ethereal ones. Sep 26, 2022 Full Review Stefan Pape Common Sense Media Set during the COVID-19 pandemic, this horror movie taps into our deepest, innermost thoughts and fears, zoning in on anxiety and isolation. The Harbinger uses a demon that appears in the characters dreams as a metaphor for the virus. Rated: 3/5 Aug 17, 2023 Full Review Deirdre Crimmins Paste Magazine The Harbinger is great. It uses the still-present pandemic as a setting for elevated tension and mistrust, but at its core is a thoughtful and terrifying reflection of truly basic fears. Rated: 8.5/10 Apr 19, 2023 Full Review Matthew Pejkovic Matt's Movie Reviews Successfully taps into the psychological distress felt during peak-Covid lockdowns in its telling of a horror story that cuts deep with masterful precision. Rated: 4/5 Jan 24, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      Adam B Skipped through most of it, but the parts I saw seemed kind of trippy and interesting. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 04/07/24 Full Review Jacob B A family of mask sporting, super-vaccinated leftist hermit psychopaths so terrified of the plandemic they lock themselves in their own home and slowly begin to mutate into brainwashed agoraphobic sheeple. As their own demented fears of leaving their own home become more and more warped, their brains become mushy soup and the chaos ensues. The fact that there are actual people out there who really behave like this makes the film all-the-more frightening! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/10/24 Full Review G. R I have to admit that I was really surprised to log on and see this getting panned by the audience. I thought this movie was really fun and pretty scary too. It has some really nice jump scares and I'm not one that jump-scares easily. There are some really rich moments of brooding dread and enough parts in the movie that really keep you guessing on what is real and what isn't real. I understand a few of the plot-hole comments that are out there, but it never really spoiled the viewing experience for me. The supernatural brush of the whole thing paints over more than a few cinema sins. Others ragged on the pandemic premise of it and said that they thought it just blended in with the rest of the Covid-topic movies. I must live a sheltered life, I guess. I've never seen another Covid-based movie. This was my first. Brought back some really terrible memories! LOL. I liked the metaphors involved. Perhaps the sickness metaphors are being overused in other films. I dunno. When I started it and saw the opening credits there wasn't a single name I recognized in the cast. You see that and you expect the acting to be like a Hallmark Christmas movie. But, no. The acting was quite good given the obscurity of the cast list. I say give it a shot. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/24 Full Review Craig B The Harbinger certainly offers what you would call a ‘slow burn'. If you can stick with it for the first 50 minutes, you may get something out of the last 35 minutes where considerably more happens. It has its moments of creepiness and plays off the whole ‘quarantine' atmosphere, but may not tick all the boxes for folks looking for a worthwhile yet brief horror flick. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/19/23 Full Review Kyle M Any horrors achieving exceptionality strongly captivates in trances towards effective scares conjured by an utterly compelling story, or by the performances and artistic gazes that powered the eerie sceneries. This may not be as strong at that level, but it's one of the finest when tackling the subconscious subject in the mindful backdrop though executed in surreal fashion that turns out as the striking breakdown effect without holding back on the mythos, especially when contributing towards the timely topical narrative at the time. (B) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/25/23 Full Review Steve H Two movies called "The Harbinger" in 2022. THIS Harbinger movie is more Rated R and the other "The Harbinger" is PG but tbh I was really entertained with the other one (knowing ahead of time it was PG). With THIS movie, I was expecting to be scared. Uh….no. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews
