Critic Reviews for Jackals

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (7) | Rotten (9)

  • "Jackals" is a bit of style, almost no substance, and so scanty on the scares it's not worth the price of admission.

    September 8, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • The film's ultimate nihilism makes the whole exercise seem like an annoyingly pointless waste of time-even for a movie that's barely 80 minutes long.

    September 1, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Its run-of-the-mill standoff may appease some hardcore horror buffs, but it offers nothing to the rest of us and will likely be forgotten before the blood on the ground dries.

    August 31, 2017 | Full Review…
  • The movie does what it sets out to do: stranding the viewer in a dark place, surrounded by remorseless predators. It's an old recipe that can still please a crowd.

    August 31, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Though far more elegant in execution than most Rob Zombie-imitating films, Jackals smugly wears its violent tediousness as a badge of honor.

    August 27, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It's not quite up there with the invasive horror of The Strangers or You're Next, but Jackals still manages to deliver enough genre-specific beats to make it worth a glance for hardcore horror fans.

    October 10, 2019 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for Jackals

  • Sep 23, 2017
    Visually striking and moderately original, but full of stupid characters making decisions the audience cannot appreciate. An enjoyable enough movie for fans of the horror that just scrapes by with a passing grade for me.
