      Critics Consensus

      While We Need to Do Something can feel as unfocused as its title, it offers eerily timely genre thrills, soaked in claustrophobic dread.

      Drew Gregory Autostraddle Why You Should Watch We Need to Do Something: You want a reminder that the pandemic could be worse. Dec 21, 2021 Full Review Mike McCahill Guardian It's moderately diverting Halloween filler - earning points for reviving Taco's electropop cover of Puttin' on the Ritz - but still way too static to become actually entertaining. Rated: 2/5 Oct 19, 2021 Full Review Kristy Puchko IGN Movies Despite one supremely frightening moment, this movie is not scary. It just stinks. Sep 10, 2021 Full Review Jordy Sirkin Jordy Reviews It The plot itself is a cool idea but the execution was an exhaustive experience. It could be horrifying, but with some mediocre performances, that tension is completely diluted. Feb 22, 2023 Full Review Peter Canavese Celluloid Dreams An insubstantial, obvious, repetitive and somewhat thin psychological horror film, but the committed performances do give it some juice. Rated: 2/4 Jun 28, 2022 Full Review Josh Parham Next Best Picture While keeping the scope contained makes the central conflicts more heightened for these characters, it does make one yearn for exposing a more extensive narrative around them. Rated: 6/10 Jun 8, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      shane Freakiest movie I’ve ever seen. I left midway through. The language was off-the-chain vulgar. The homosexuality love story, mixed with witchcraft with whatever was going on in this tense, unnerving film with characters that were far from lovable was to much for me. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 09/04/21 Full Review Michael P No. Watch anything else. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/01/24 Full Review X A Coming from someone who has adored scary movies since I was a kid and almost nothing scares me anymore there were a couple things in this that genuinely unsettled me. Overall I liked it but it could've been better and the ending was disappointing with no real answers in sight. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/04/24 Full Review Teresa E It literally made no sense!!! No conversation about a "dog" talking, what happened to the guy "outside" and what happened when the mom got thru the wall and came back all bloody???? Nothing tied any of it together and the scare factor was predictable! The only thing interesting was the design of the bathroom!!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/19/24 Full Review Raincloud M I had no clue what this movie was about. After one hour, 36 minutes and 36 seconds of painfully trying to pay attention, I still don't. Great movie to watch if you've been meaning to scroll through Reddit more this week. I've watched documentaries more interesting Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/24 Full Review Jeff M I am in love with the concept of this movie, and when I heard the plot earlier in the year, I placed it among my most eagerly anticipated films of the year. Unfortunately, a plot line involving evil spells and spirits becomes increasingly more preposterous and ridiculous that the admittedly tension-filled early moments of the movie eventually succumb resulting in one of the most unsatisfying endings of a movie in recent memory. That is such a shame because a good deal of this motion picture has a lot of tension and unpredictability. Those who have a fear of snakes will particularly find this quite unsettling. The claustrophobic atmosphere is quite effecting, and I only wish the filmmakers had gone a different avenue - this could have been one of the most unsettling and disturbing movies of recent memory. And I would have been a lot more forgiving if the ending had been a bit more satisfying. It's one of the few times I audibly yelled at the screen when the ending credits rolled due to its lack of resolution. There's some really good tension-filled moments here, but it falls apart badly. And that's such a shame! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/08/24 Full Review Read all reviews
