A good psychological horror film that has little to do with theological anguish. [Full review in Spanish]

... a portrait of marriage as a morass of anger, suspicion and power ... that von Trier twists into a diseased hell: paradise rotted.

If you can stomach the violence, which is something that rivals Saw VI, it is beautifully crafted and unlike anything in theaters today.
August 28, 2015
A confrontational film that dances between the sublime, the mundane, and the shocking with little to no regard for audience expectations.
September 24, 2014
There will be no thumbs up or down ... [The film] is neither disgusting ... nor is it one of the great films. It is a transitional work made by an artist clearly in crisis.
March 5, 2014
Von Trier admits he has no idea what any of this s--- means, but only a filmmaker of his skill could make such an inchoate mess so strangely entertaining.
August 12, 2013
Because of its impassioned conviction, placing it on a scale of value is practically irrelevant.
June 22, 2013
Before this movie goes careening desperately, hysterically, insanely off the rails, this is an ambitious, scary peek into pulsating, evil human hurt.

March 1, 2011
It's audacious, gruesome and pushes to the extreme limits of acceptable cinema content: but it is never any of those things to exclude ordinary viewers.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
October 21, 2010
It is unrelenting, terrifying and profoundly powerful. And it is really, really ballsy; a claim that viewers will recognise as being highly ironic considering the ball-related events that take place within the film.

Von Trier is a prankster so any attempt to guess at WTF he had in mind could just end up with the Danish auteur pulling your leg. The Fox may have said it best:"Chaos Reigns"
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
July 6, 2010
Functioning as the inverse of the Biblical creation story, Antichrist is the most unique and divisive 'horror' film you are ever likely to see.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
July 6, 2010
A beautiful and ultimately very sad film.
June 4, 2010
A grim film that wants you to feel the pain its characters do.

January 31, 2010
Purely as a visual and visceral experience, puckish writer-diretor Lars von Trier produces an enormously powerful phantasmagoria that deals with and reproduces the effects of fear and depression.

December 18, 2009
But there is one very definite way to take the vibe of the whole thing, I'd say, and that's that this movie knows exactly what it is to suffer from panic attacks.
December 16, 2009
... it got to me in the way that poetry or music or visual majesty can; it hammered that place beyond language and intellect, the animal id of the screaming self ... A gleaming atrocity. Bad medicine.
Full Review | Original Score: 85/100

O sonho molhado de qualquer psicanalista.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
December 3, 2009
It's a beautiful film, if a difficult one to love, an adaptation in form of "Thanatopsis" that hears Nature speak with a forked tongue
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
December 2, 2009
Von Trier, never exactly an optimist, has never been this gloomy and pessimistic. Antichrist is the feel-bad movie of the year.
