Movie Info

An injured forest ranger on a routine mission is saved by two off-the-grid survivalists. What is initially a welcome rescue grows more suspicious as the son and his renegade father reveal a cultish devotion to the forest. When their cabin is attacked by a strange being it's clear there is a far greater threat in this unrelenting wilderness.

Critic Reviews for Gaia

  • Even when the story takes on biblical overtones, the melodrama never blossoms. And in terms of suspense, Gaia doesn't so much tighten the screws as endlessly turn them in the wrong direction.

  • Bouwer takes material that could have been laughable and makes it terrifying and intense.

    June 16, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • As a feat of carefully imagined, economically realized world-building... "Gaia" compels to the end, making the most of the natural resources at its disposal while constructing its own dreamy, tactile visions.

  • After a while, the film's elaborate, often breathtaking special effects come to feel like it's only source of complexity.

    June 14, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Fans of Jeff VanderMeer's "Southern Reach Trilogy" and its Annihilation adaptation, and lovers of the defiantly feminine and vengeful natural world will find plenty to chew on in Gaia.

  • [Gaia] is most significant for its excellent make-up and select special effects.
