Critic Reviews for Amulet

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (4)

  • Unafraid to turn into a true phantasmagoria, Garai's filmmaking hints at a director whose tastes skew away from your typical horror movie construction.

  • More adventurous types will grok the distinctive vision on display in this split-level narrative of terrors bred by both war and more unearthly evils.

  • It's an impressive first feature, and while fans of zippy midnight movies might balk at its slow-burn opening act, the film eventually builds to some nutso body horror and a strong sense of mythology that announces Garai's arrival as a filmmaker to watch.

  • I absolutely loved just how wickedly weird things get in Amulet once the story gets fully amped up, and I think Garai shows a lot of promise here as a director who isn't interested in just giving us the same ol' horror-centric song and dance.

    March 2, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Actress turned writer-director Romola Garai has visual flair and an impeccable taste in European actors, but the screenplay of her feature debut, Amulet, leaves much to be desired.

    February 29, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The subtle performances of Secareanu and Juri anchor the film, preventing it from spiralling into melodrama. Garai both writing and directing a film so packed full of complicated ideas and finding innovative ways to convey them, is an impressive debut.
