It's what comes after that killing that leads into 70 additional minutes of horror and misfortune for the James family.

[If] you're looking for something engaging or haunting, 1922 is about as barren as Wilfred's fallow fields.

It may not be particularly original, but the details are well-realized, and the film moves along at a brisk pace. A minor King adaptation, perhaps, but a good one.

The slow building dread makes 1922 a movie experience that does its due diligence to fester, just like the body that resides at the center of Wilfred's shame.

Still, if you're in the mood for something quick and creepy, 1922 will do the trick. It'll haunt you in just the right way, and then fade away like a specter.

A haunting viewing experience, managing a dark tale of murder and expanding guilt with style and care for King's wicked interests in the corrosion of soul and the blurring of reality.

Not much happens and much more could have been made of the rural Gothic atmosphere, but this tale of vengeance from beyond the grave is still strong enough to warrant a watch.

The progressive mental wear suffered by the character is transformed into ruthless torture and... this gradualism becomes frightening... [Full review in Spanish]

...a rock solid, astute, effective and thematically rich piece of modern horror cinema...

1922 is a terrific example of just how powerful horror movies can be. Not only does writer-director Zak Hilditch employ a gorgeous, psychological slow-burn approach to the storytelling, he punctuates it with sudden bursts of visceral horror.

1922 is a fascinating exploration of what guilt does to a man, fueled by a strong lead performance from Jane and compelling direction.

... Wilfred's guilt becomes a literal infestation. In the hands of a lesser actor, he could have become a caricature, but Jane stains him, revealing his toxic masculinity and vulnerability.

[1922] is a credible addition to a filmography where practically every thought the writer commits to paper is, seemingly, deemed fit for the screen.

The familiar case of a short story stretched too thin in a feature film.

1922 is a slow burn, a psychological horror tale that weaves a simple yet captivating story.

Maybe this would have been a great episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, but as a film, it feels too small for its own good.

There's an unshakable menace that lingers, a tale of guilt and regret that burrows its way under the skin.

October 19, 2017
It's a solid, straightforward thriller that gets the job done without much fuss, and it lands somewhere in the upper-middle of all King movie adaptations.

Thomas Jane's dramatization of rage is haunting and shrewdly comical in its overt and ultimately moving über-manliness.
