Hawke anchors the film as a cop who descends deeper and deeper into the monstrous, violent world he's uncovered.
February 6, 2016
A disposable genre movie that cannot scare, convince, or enlighten.
February 5, 2016
Tripped up by its subject matter, the movie is ultimately a tepid and frustrating experience.

Well-intended seriousness dismantles "Regression," a not-exactly-horror horror movie that's also a mystery with no mystery.

For a less trashy, more authentically chilling experience, seek out Ti West's The House of the Devil instead.

Regression is a modestly budgeted investigative thriller that showcases ill-judged performances, poorly written characters and horrible direction.

Boring at times, laughably bad at others and occasionally, I'm afraid, both.
May 30, 2016
Despite its Euro-gothic pretensions, the film struggles to sell its far-fetched premise and is further hobbled by a slew of unconvincing performances.

This is a college essay about religion dressed up as drama. Grade: F.

[Blu-ray Review] A serious-minded thriller with more going on beneath the surface than initially meets the eye, "Regression" deserves a closer look following its blink-and-you-missed-it theatrical showing. Highly recommended on Blu-ray.

Deriving inspiration from a certain famed Arthur Miller play and reframing it for the era of rampant, media-invoked Satanic Panic fears, "Regression" provocatively blankets its elegiac mystery in a malignant pall of diabolical foreboding.

This is a movie that, because it deals with secrets, promises thrills and possibly a measure of terror; but, in fact, everything is based on an anti-climax, and the result is a resounding "so what?"

Fans of the genre are in for a stylish film, if not a classic.
February 19, 2016
Absurdity turns quickly to boredom.
February 11, 2016
Amenbar's film can barely lay out its faith-vs.-science-vs.-reason conflicts, much less employ them for critical purposes.
February 10, 2016
By no means the disaster (at least artistically) it's been painted as, this is an unusual horror movie -- one that critiques and subverts its own genre.
February 7, 2016
fills me with malaise
February 7, 2016
Listless and lazy, Regression is an ugly mess of genre tropes that tries (and fails) to pass itself off as an atmospheric dissection of hypnosis and hysteria.
February 7, 2016
...Regression treats the film more like a dull Salem witch hunt rather than looking deeper into the phenomenon.
February 6, 2016
The amazing thing about Regression isn't so much that it's bad, it's that it's mundane.
