Critic Reviews for A Dark Song

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (4)

Imperfectly realized, but still worthy of its ambition.

May 26, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Its descent into shock and impending doom is the sort of experience that will follow you home from the theater and nest in your nightmares.

May 11, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Virtually a chamber piece with just two primary characters, the movie dives into the black arts with methodical restraint and escalating unease.

April 27, 2017 | Full Review…

The two leads are resolute soldiers about it all, but they're dutifully edgy elements in a stylist's frame instead of fully realized characters living out what is supposed to be the riskiest time of their lives.

April 27, 2017 | Full Review…

An instant classic, the sort of film that will make you check under your bed at night and then amplify into terror the midnight creaks and 3am breezes that unsettle every house at times, most especially yours.

For a first feature, Gavin certainly provides plenty of anxiety-inducing moments.

Audience Reviews for A Dark Song

½

A satisfying clash of magical realism, down to earth emotion and hysterical apparition. It's too long by 15 minutes but mostly is wonderfully weird and very well acted. Would make a great double bill with Sisters of the Plague.
