      Critics Consensus

      Mark Kermode Kermode & Mayo's Film Review There's a good balance of firmness and entertaining. Creepy thrills and atmospheric chills, for a pretty modest horror film I thought it did the job pretty well. May 11, 2020 Full Review Simran Hans Observer (UK) There's something appealing about its modest ambitions, with its cast of unknowns, relative low stakes and retro jump scares. Rated: 3/5 May 11, 2020 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian A non-frightening muddle. Rated: 2/5 May 6, 2020 Full Review Jordy Sirkin Jordy Reviews It THE WRETCHED has so much working in its favor, but it needed to be more fine-tuned to avoid some tone issues and plot holes. Oct 2, 2022 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies “The Wretched” is a movie that can’t fully hide its limitations despite its ability to rise above them. Rated: 3/5 Aug 21, 2022 Full Review Daniel Howat Next Best Picture The Wretched never overstays its welcome, holding some unexpected moments up to the very last shot. A solid blend of just-enough story, paired with unsettling frights, keeps the hooks in. Rated: 7/10 May 20, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Nina E kinda hard to follow. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/24 Full Review Logan D A teenager visits his father, who lives near and works at a marina. Once he realizes the boy next door is being terrorized, his heroism guides the young man to help. Both my wife and I loved this. There are several "huh" moments throughout the film but the story explains those by the end. Certainly a film you could view a second time for a different experience. Some very scary effects and creepy cinema make this Highly recommended Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/07/24 Full Review Orlando T It's full of flaws it didn't make sense at all and it's no scary and very disappointing Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/30/23 Full Review Wolfgang G The Wretched ist ein übernatürlicher Horrorfilm, der von den Pierce Brothers geschrieben und inszeniert wurde… Ben verbringt die Sommerferien in einer kleinen Küstenstadt, um sich dort von der Scheidung seiner Eltern abzulenken. Doch der idyllische Eindruck des Örtchens täuscht… Eine Coming-of-Age-Geschichte, die niemanden verschonen will, aber die Grundgeschichte braucht einfach mehr Charakterentwicklung… Kurz gesagt, ein unterhaltsamer, origineller und gut gespielter Horrorfilm. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/20/23 Full Review Jamie K Painfully slow and predictable. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/29/23 Full Review John H I downloaded this thinking it would probably suck and was pleasantly surprised. This is a fun movie that has some nice twists in it. It's a great horror movie! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews
