What to know

critics consensus

If its chilly sense of dread never quite becomes spine-tingling terror, Amulet remains smart, solidly disquieting fun for genre fans seeking slow-building horror. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for Amulet

All Critics (75) | Top Critics (17) | Fresh (53) | Rotten (22)

  • ...the most technically ambitious of these films, and through the first two-thirds, at least, it's jaggedly compelling...

    August 18, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Creepy, bloody, and flat-out weird in places, Amulet is a bold directorial debut for Garai and a disquieting reminder that getting rid of the past is never very easy.

    August 4, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Garai incisively dissects concepts involving cycles of abuse, male entitlement and female disempowerment in the context of an otherwise by-the-book example of cerebral existential horror.

    July 25, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Amulet is more than the sum of its visual frights. Garai sets you up to expect one kind of movie, but she's made something else entirely...

    July 24, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Suffused with plenty of gross-out, phantasmagoric body horror but short on actual spine-tingling scares, the handsomely-produced Amulet asserts Garai more as a gifted genre stylist than a savvy storyteller.

    July 24, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie casts a grim sort of spell; a brooding, stifled dread that creeps in quietly from the margins, and lingers long after the last triumphant frame.

    July 24, 2020 | Rating: B | Full Review…
