Critic Reviews for The Atticus Institute

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (3)

  • The setting is (mostly) the Seventies, but this is without doubt a post-9/11 movie, where the devil's work has already been done and all innocence has long since been lost.

    March 2, 2015
  • A premise that holds itself is enough for considering this found footage flick one that's worth checking out. [Full review in Spanish].

    March 30, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • There's a sense of repetitiveness that kicks in about halfway through, eventually dragging the film to an unsurprising and unoriginal ending.

    June 2, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • It actually feels like a "Discovery Channel"-style documentary that just happens to wander into some very supernatural places.

    August 23, 2015 | Full Review…
  • a literal answer to the question of what keeps possessing the US to conduct itself the questionable way it does in war, whether Cold or on Terror.

    March 2, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The Atticus Institute is a blast from the past, but it's not a very scary one.

Audience Reviews for The Atticus Institute

  • Apr 03, 2015
    The Atticus Institute somehow carries on like a child in spite of its excellent cast. Like The Last Exorcism (another certain found-footage possession horror), this movie throws any believability it had out the window in a finale with appallingly bad CGI. Unlike The Last Exorcism however, The Atticus Institute had nothing to offer us at any point leading up to those final seconds. It is overflowing with some of my most hated cliches, including the ever-despised "watching this film is dangerous for YOU" bullshit. That's not horror, that's a gimmick and it's garbage, and I want it out of my genre.
