  • There's a lot about Mohawk that simply doesn't work.

    Oct 3, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • As with last year's The Void, Mohawk is wonderfully long on setting, mood, and practical effects, and woefully short on storytelling and drama.

    Mar 2, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • I have no doubt that Geoghegan's intentions are sincere but the muddling of historical fiction with the Grand Guignol is an uneven mix that never fully gels.

    Mar 2, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Has the same political urgency as Wes Craven's now-classic, but rough-around-the-edges early films, like Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes.

    Mar 2, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "Mohawk" is a gripping and despairing action picture, about how we can't seem to stop trying to destroy those we distrust - including ourselves.

    Mar 1, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Ted Geoghegan's swift, slicing thriller Mohawk makes a vigorous case for horror as perhaps the most fitting film genre to capture some truths of American history.
