An entertaining genre film, presenting a handful of scenes to satisfy the gore mongers as well as those seeking a little substance.

Although "Afflicted" is light on truly frightening moments, it compensates with plenty of personality and chill.
October 2, 2017
There's no beauty or inspiration in the film's shooting style, and most importantly, no terror. If this is "ingenious" horror filmmaking, as the programme note suggests, get me off this planet.

Despite thinking you may know where the story is headed, it continually subverts expectations and in places it doesn't, there's at least quality entertainment.
March 1, 2016
This isn't the most exhilarating or groundbreaking endeavor of the horror genre, yet its cinematic and visual modus operandi works like a charm.

Rather than letting their budgetary constraints hold back their story, Prowse and Lee let their stunning visuals and compelling story do all the heavy lifting, creating a horror tale that's as scary as it is endearing.

When it comes to the ongoing cycle of handheld horror films at the local movie theater, there are far worse choices than a movie like Afflicted.
April 4, 2014
A mix of "Innocent Blood," and Cronenberg's "The Fly," with a hefty injection of "Chronicle."

There's life yet in the found-footage horror genre.

The best found-footage movie since CHRONICLE. Ambitious, and beautifully shot.

"Found footage" has become a tired technique, but Lee and Prowse, who also wrote the screenplay, give it new life.
April 3, 2014
smart enough to fill the void with an intriguing idea, effectively executed
April 3, 2014
A nifty found-footage thriller that marks a promising debut for writing-directing duo Clif Prowse and Derek Lee.
April 3, 2014
Ambitious in scope and practically flawless in execution, Afflicted is good news for horror fans seeking something fresh and chilling from two impressively assured young filmmakers.
April 3, 2014
Multiple shots are thrillingly disorienting without straying into incoherence-a tricky line to walk-and it's genuinely hard to tell whether certain effects [...] are practical or computer-generated.

...illustrates the full cycle of evolution that the genre has endured since it first creeped us out.
April 3, 2014
[Afflicted] evokes the escalating panic of a nightmare far better than the usual cheap horror film.
March 20, 2014
Afflicted is an unconventional horror movie with the guts to successfully reinvent not only one stale horror subgenre - but two.
October 15, 2013
Cool, creepy stuff that should please horror nuts and relative scaredy-cats in equal measure.

...the movie's appealing, affable atmosphere [is] perpetuated by both the first-person presentation and the personable nature of the two central characters.
