Movie Info

After a single mother witnesses terrifying symptoms of demonic possession in her 11-year-old son (David Mazouz), a Vatican representative calls on wheelchair-bound scientist Dr. Seth Ember (Aaron Eckhart) to rid him of the evil spirit. Driven by a personal agenda rooted in his own tragic past, Ember enters the boy's unconscious mind where he confronts a demon as ferocious as it is ingenious.

Critic Reviews for Incarnate

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (29)

  • It's all a wild jumble of half-baked, derivative ideas and arbitrary rules, all of which add up to a suspense-free horror narrative as murky as its lighting.

    December 2, 2016 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • Strident rhetoric is required for describing Brad Peyton's latest film, a maddening hodgepodge of ideas that range from undercooked to unoriginal.

    December 2, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Incarnate, much like its central character at key moments, barely seems to have a pulse.

    December 2, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Dense with plot and mythology, the film is refreshingly unpredictable - if only because guessing what comes next would require understanding what the hell is going on.

    December 2, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Incarnate is such a pointless bit of hackwork that it almost makes the recent horror dud Shut In seem focused by comparison.

    December 2, 2016 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…
  • Offers a relatively fresh take on standard-issue exorcism-melodrama tropes, along with a performance by Aaron Eckhart that is more than persuasive enough to encourage the investment of a rooting interest.

  • While it attempts to change up the exorcist themes, it ultimately falls flat, as it really isn't giving the viewer much by way of entertainment or scares.

    July 11, 2020 | Full Review…
  • In Incarnate, we get the latest in a fairly long, uneven line of exorcism movies. And while it is far from the worst of the bunch, it also fails to do much with what starts out as a fairly interesting idea.

Audience Reviews for Incarnate

  • Dec 03, 2016
    Incarnate is an interesting premise that would have better performed as a Netflix series instead of a feature-length film. In what should have been a Supernatural horror film feels more like Comic Book origin movie with no way to turn a good idea into a good movie. While it is more entertaining than many other films in the Blumhouse library, at the end of the day, Incarnate doesn't have the story to pull off its own ideas.
