The story is a bit far-fetched and many of the situations feel forced, but, overall, its moral questions bear examination.

Not only does Stigmata revel in anti-Vatican jabs that will offend religious-minded people, it goes over the top with its bloody Exorcist-style story.

A garish clashing of sacred images and bloody semihorror, this is a movie that defines the category: interesting failure.

Appear to have been inspired by old Iron Maiden videos!

Even after watching Stigmata, I'll be damned, so to speak, if I can explain it!

What Stigmata suffers from is a bad case of late-1990s moviemaking. That is, it prefers sensationalism to making sense.

Stigmata is so bad it ultimately leaves you with the age-old question 'If there is a God why would he permit a film like this to be made?'

Never coming close to achieving the level of laughably bad, the dry and ludicrous Stigmata never rises above painfully bad.

Over-the-top imagery, music, and rapid-fire editing are the culprits that stigmatize the story.

An overwrought horror story burdened by sluggish pacing, a lame screenplay with a distinct lack of internal logic and an insufferable soundtrack.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Why make a movie bound to insult someone else's faith? Has Hollywood run out of ideas that simply insult our intelligence?

Is there an eighth deadly sin called 'narcissistic direction'?
Top Critic

The movie definitely needs cinematic first aid.
Dustin Putman
January 1, 2000
A brutal, oft-unpleasant thriller, punctuated by quick cutting and a loud late-'90s alternative soundtrack.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
