'Separation' is a good movie ... to stay away from.
June 6, 2021
The only separation that exists here is the vast one between good and bad filmmaking, and Separation falls decidedly on the side of the latter.

Separation could have either gone for a nuanced family drama that happened to have ghosts or it could've been an over the top haunted house film with a plethora of unique ghouls and wild twist, but instead it shoots for the middle.

Promising horror pic that can't deliver the goods.
May 7, 2021
Suffers from a senseless storyline and a set of unlikable characters with no redeeming qualities. The special effects are quite menacing but wasted as the film fails to connect with the audience.

Bell has the unfortunate ability to set the stage for a decent horror story without ever really following through.

This is not just a bad horror movie, it is a bad movie overall. Everyone involved her deserved better than this and so do you. Steer clear.

Unfortunately, this first narrative features from scribes Nick Amadeus and Josh Braun gluts itself on phantom red herrings atop the shoulders of a formidably insipid protagonist in Rupert Friend.

A pale pastiche of better movies, Separation might not be good, but its marionette mayhem emerges as curiously entertaining.
May 3, 2021
The basic nature of Separation's supernatural evil isn't even clear in one seriously confused movie.

Bell knows how to pull dread out of the air, and he orchestrates the oppressive atmosphere and the periodic scares with masterful precision.

It balances the typical ghost story plot with enough reality that people do face.
May 1, 2021
A solid cast and some stylish visual flourishes can't save a film that jettisons its more high-minded ambitions for some formulaic child-in-peril nonsense.

This "imaginary friend" horror movie takes its time and tries hard to focus on relationships and emotions, but the characters still feel somehow stiff and flat, as if they were only half-finished.

There's only one proper way to settle with the film: split from it.
April 30, 2021
There are no believable characters, no rising tension, and no scares in this Insidious meets Kramer vs. Kramer.
April 30, 2021
Thanks to computer imagery that betrays its digital origins, the things that go bump in the night are more irritating than frightening.
April 30, 2021
[A] dull and misogynistic affair that imagines multiple types of women as malevolent fiends who terrorize supposedly sympathetic men.
April 29, 2021
A lazy rehash of cliches that has been assembled in such a haphazard and disinterested manner that it suggests nothing but contempt for anyone foolish enough to actually spend a few bucks and two precious hours on it.
April 29, 2021
The thinking behind the storytelling of Separation seems to be that it doesn't have to make sense, as long as there are plenty of opportunities for creepiness.
