Critic Reviews for Observance

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (4)

  • Sims-Dennett's slippery take on manipulation and madness ushers in a welcome return for the messy obfuscation and creepy indeterminacy formerly found in the neurotic cinema of the late '60s and early '70s.

    October 10, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Joseph Sims-Dennett's Observance bundles voyeurism, blind obedience and grief up in a package that is already plenty disturbing before the biological horrors slink in.

    May 11, 2016 | Full Review…
  • A clever, low-budget exercise from the young Australian-based director Joseph Sims-Dennett, Observance is a hybrid of two familiar brands of psychological thriller.

    April 7, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A twitchy, icky, genuinely unsettling psychological thriller about a private investigator who takes on what appears to be a simple, well-paying job.

    April 4, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Observance is simply a confusing film that wants to be so much more than it is.

    April 4, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Putting its clichés and reliance on withholding information for the sake of mystery aside, there are some undeniably creepy moments peppered throughout.
