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.

    Sep 11, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Worthington-Cox is terrific; the mounting uncertainty in her eyes seeds the suspicion of wrongdoing throughout the film.
