Critic Reviews for Desolation

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

  • A potentially intriguing premise gets a maladroit execution in a thriller that's more befuddling than exciting.

  • It wants to be a commentary on the depravity of Hollywood and what people find entertaining, but instead it mostly just mirrors the media's habit of using sexual trauma as a plot device and surviving such horrors as a character trait.

  • If Desolation had just assumed that its audience needed less explanation while doling out the mystery, this could have been a savvy update. Instead, the film just comes off as contrived.

  • After we figure out what's happening, there isn't much more to keep us involved...

  • Desolation is a unique take on a more traditional horror film with strong performances, especially the central performance from Dominik García-Lorido.
