      Jordan Mintzer Hollywood Reporter Let’s call it a case of swinging for the fences and hitting a foul ball that lands somewhere far off in the upper tiers, so much does this ambitious and well-made but extremely flawed film miss its mark. Sep 27, 2023 Full Review Peter Debruge Variety Whether the film is meant to be seen as an isolated case or a metaphor for a much larger societal problem, the impact is unnerving. Sep 27, 2023 Full Review Fionnuala Halligan Screen International The Successor delivers a succession of jolts, and none of them are palatable. They’re all finessed, though, by a writer-director and technical team who know exactly what they’re doing... Sep 26, 2023 Full Review Sergi Sánchez Fotogramas [Xavier Legrand] opens the door to a pitiless psychological thriller, pushing the verisimilitude to the limit to intensify a horrifying idea: that evil finds the most perverse ways of perpetuating itself through affiliation. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Mar 25, 2024 Full Review Javier Ocaña El Pais (Spain) A dark and almost delirious walk through madness, genetic mental disorders, and the fear of illness... [Full review in Spanish] Mar 25, 2024 Full Review Toni Vall Cinemanía (Spain) A dark chronicle and horror story, and a surprisingly well-told thriller.
