Movie Info

In Victorian London, innocent shop girl Constance falls in love and marries Dr. Joseph Barton, a medical researcher. She has a sexual awakening with her husband, but their passion is cut short after the life-threatening birth of daughter Angelica. Their puritanical doctors order abstinence, condemning Constance for lascivious appetites. Sexual repression leads to obsession, and Constance becomes increasingly protective of Angelica. Joseph's secrets fuel the growing conflicts. Then, late at night, the household is disrupted by what appears to be a paranormal predator. The eerie visits multiply, evermore menacing and vividly evoking Constance's deepest fears. To cleanse the home of its terrors, she reaches out to spiritualist Anne Montague. But the arrival of this charismatic woman brings even more complexities to the deteriorating Barton household. Constance places her deepest trust in Anne, and together they fight against a force that may be more sinisterly human than supernatural...

Critic Reviews for Angelica

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

  • This is an alternately handsome and harrowing ghost story, about a civilized society haunted by its own unspeakable needs.

    Nov 16, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Even Angelica's most juvenile gags are a perfect synthesis of gross-out silliness and atmospheric scares.

    Nov 15, 2017 | Full Review…
  • It is a rare treat to encounter a period horror film which says a lot about the relationship between man and woman and man-versus-nature, whilst providing a satisfyingly eerie psychological drama.

    Dec 14, 2017 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
  • Angelica is a slow burn but rewards patience as the director takes his time to lay out his themes, introduce his characters and slowly ratchet up the melodrama.

    Nov 28, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Angelica feels like Alias Grace meets The Babadook.

    Nov 21, 2017 | Full Review…
  • It remains cold and emotionally distant, and not especially creepy, only somewhat redeemed by an intensely wacko finale that at least should generate discussion afterward.
