Critic Reviews for The Antichrist
Now von Trier's trying his hand at the horror porn genre without abandoning the genital close-ups, making Antichrist a sort of horror porn squared.
O único elemento que merece elogios, nesta cópia patética de O Exorcista, é a bela Carla Gravina; o resto deve ser exorcizado de nossas memórias.
It involves Satan, a possessed woman's tongue and a billy goat's butthole. Again, the distinction between scary and unpleasant becomes revoltingly clear.

Audience Reviews for The Antichrist
The goat, and I'm not talking about this being regarded as the greatest-of-all-time. No, I'm talking about the goat.
An enjoyable but dated and cheesy Italian "Exorcist" rip-off. It doesn't have the exact same story as The Exorcist but it borrows heavily from it but without managing to be as scary or chilling and a lot of its attempts to be so end up being quite funny, particularly the obscene language. The effects haven't aged well, especially the optical effects, but there's effort been put into it and for its day it isn't a bad film considering its budget. It's well shot, has a good central performance and an effectively moody and atmospheric score. The film starts off slow but gets better as it goes along. Not that effective as a serious horror movie anymore though.
Truly phenomenal demonic possession film. While many films pale in comparison to The Exorcist, The Antichrist takes from that film and makes itself into something else entirely. Blasphemous images, copulation with the devil, demonic orgies including goats, and foul-mouthed Satanic diatribes are only a few of the highlights. The film is stylishly directing, and the orgy scenes contains some of the most haunting, diabolic images ever put on film.
