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.

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.

Too convoluted for its own good. The film takes itself seriously when it probably should have embraced its borderline silliness.
November 2, 2018
While Incarnate exceeds many of my expectations, there are still things that fall a bit short of what could be a near perfect reinvention of a possession film. The scientific aspects and the acting are definitely the highlights.
October 31, 2018
Bland direction and a by-the-numbers script make for an ultimately unsatisfying viewing experience.

Incarnate's overtly positive elements, including a typically engaging turn by Eckhart, are eventually rendered moot...

Aaron Eckhart, you're better than this I've seen you be better than this but do something that's better.

[The] performances make the human characters far more interesting than the demonic ones.
September 7, 2017
A low-rent horror film in need of an exorcist, as it never recovers from being cursed with a bad script.
January 19, 2017
This horror movie tries to set itself apart from other demon-possession movies by inventing an interesting new mythology, but eventually it gets tired, bogged down and lost in its own rule book.

The result isn't even close to what could be expected, since its ending it's like a pastiche of many things and nothing at the same time. [Full review in Spanish]
January 6, 2017
The mixture of genres and the well-executed twist offered by Incarnation's premise, above the usual formula, is what saves it from burning. [Full review in Spanish]
January 5, 2017
A horror film that recaptures elements of the classics to mix them indistinctly and clumsily into a fragile reflection on dreams and time, and ends up being a predictable disaster. [Full review in Spanish]
January 5, 2017
A pile of cliches under a mountain of stupidity. [Full review in Portuguese.]
December 31, 2016
The preposterous climax is merely a ploy to ensure a sequel -- a proposition that is scarier than anything else in Incarnate.
December 25, 2016
Easily one of the worst films of 2016.
December 13, 2016
Incarnate [comes] across as a cheap and relatively ineffective blend of The Exorcist and Inception.
December 9, 2016
Director Brad Peyton may have wrapped up his film in the trappings of demonic possession, but inside that packaging is a watered-down "Inception" laced with a mild horror aftertaste.
December 8, 2016
It's Inception meets The Exorcist, and the best thing you can say for this routine scare-'em-up is that the final result isn't as idiotic as the premise sounds.
December 6, 2016
Dullness incarnate.
