  • The movie is nerve-wracking throughout, but especially terrifying in the final 20 minutes.

  • If having their own Momo is Netflix's latest attempt to grab viewers, they're gonna need a much more disturbing monster.

  • Egerton hones his focus into sharper screams, and audiences delight most of all. More of this Owen Egerton, please. Have we just found Blumhouse's latest in-house workman?

  • A real child's story of surviving a vicious attempt on her life is exploited by Egerton for the stupid and soulless spectacle that is Mercy Black.

  • Netflix takes another stab at dropping a surprise horror movie, but the end result is the same.

  • With the exception of a few scares that fall a little flat, Mercy Black serves some exceptionally solid B-movie fun.

Audience Reviews for Mercy Black

  • Jun 06, 2020
    An engaging psychological thriller, Mercy Black delivers some frightening chills. Fifteen years after sacrificing a playmate to a spirit named Mercy Black Marina Hess is released from a mental hospital, but a series of strange occurrences causes her to question her sanity and whether Mercy is real. Daniella Pineda gives a strong performance and the script does a good job at building the mystery and at teasing out what happening in Marina's youth. And director Owen Egerton gives the film an atmospheric and foreboding tone. Still, it tries one twist too many at the end, which kind of mucks up the story a bit. Yet despite a few weaknesses, Mercy Black is a solid horror film full of suspense and intrigue.

    If you want to read the review I wrote for this, go to letterboxd.com/HankIsDead514. I can no longer post long reviews on here and I'm not writing two separate reviews for the same movie.
