Critic Reviews for Darling

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (20) | Rotten (8)

  • Keating keeps his cards close, a common conceit of the films he's referencing: Repulsion, Rosemary's Baby, The Innocents, Persona, just to name a few. Does he succeed? You'd better believe it.

    April 14, 2016 | Full Review…
  • More likely to dull by repetitive creep than memorably rattle the senses.

    April 7, 2016 | Full Review…
  • The director's Polanski preoccupation borders on imitation. Still, Keating's flattery is sincere, and so is his wish to stylishly freak you silly.

    April 1, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Keating ... crafts his own stylish take on the psycho and haunting genres in between winks to the classics.

    March 31, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Using the simplest of settings - and familiar genre devices - Mickey Keating's horror outing "Darling" manages to conjure an effectively unsettling miasma.

    March 31, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Thanks to excellent work from Carter, creepy and big-eyed innocent as required and strong throughout the 75-minute film, Darling holds its own as a satisfyingly deliberate-moving thriller.

  • The offensiveness of Keating's story might not have been so transparent if everything else didn't feel so half-baked.

    May 22, 2019 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…
  • Darling is a must-see for those who want a great performance, jarring scares, and a fresh art-house take on classic themes.
