Critic Reviews for Thale

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

  • It's too wordy by half, saying what it should be showing -- which is ironic, given helmer Aleksander L. Nordaas' able hand, early on, with unspoken, unseen horrors.

  • Odd hybrid doesn't make the most of its folkloric premise.

  • Soon the wealth of exposition is accompanied by the appearance of hoofed CG wilderness she-beasts devoid of any terrifying personality.

  • There's none of the usual horror over-emphasis here - it's just observational, matter of fact, and thereby much creepier.

  • the unexpected is precisely what is delivered by this low-budget, high-ambition rewriting of local ancient folklore in a modern idiom.

  • Hokey CGI; if the budget wasn't enough to make the effects good enough, they should have been left out entirely.
