Critic Reviews for Gwen

Ultimately, McGregor piles so much misfortune on his downtrodden heroines with so little dramatic justification, the net emotional effect is more numbing than moving.

A horror story, one which might be described as choosing horror over story, or style over substance, but whose style is so striking and effective it hardly matters.

Nov 6, 2018 | Rating: 3.8/5 | Full Review…

McGregor gives horror aficionados a few choice jump scares to keep them happy, but Gwen is all about that certain mood common to most folk horror films: a darkening eclipse of dread as the evils of the collective begin to spill out into the night.

McGregor can't quite tie them together to arrive at a truly fitting, epic final act worthy of this atmospheric, anti-patriarchal twist on pagan horror.

Clever, beautiful and well-acted, Gwen proves to be an unexpected delight. It's a slow burn, but one worth seeking out.

Worthington-Cox is terrific; the mounting uncertainty in her eyes seeds the suspicion of wrongdoing throughout the film.
