Critic Reviews for The Demons

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (1)

  • Les Démons is weakest when it is falls too self-consciously into ubiquitous cliches about gender and rites of passage. But ... at its best ... Les Démons is an extraordinary film about the coldness of childhood.

    August 25, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The doubts, fears, and yes, horrors of life beneath the comfortable surface of a Montreal suburb are subjected to the quizzical, pained gaze of a sensitive 10-year-old in Philippe Lesage's laconic, unsettling The Demons.

    December 7, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Fevered imagination and nightmarish reality brush shoulders to disconcerting effect in The Demons, Quebecois filmmaker Philippe Lesage's extraordinary examination of childhood fears festering in broad suburban daylight.

  • ... [director} Philippe Lesage has posited The Demons at the moment when a child begins to learn that the world is a place full of turbulence... [Full review in Spanish]

    December 7, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The look Lesage proposes, has something painful in its conception of childhood as a bad harvest, a field full of possibilities of growth badly planted by the ineptitude (inevitable) of the cultivator. [Full review in Spanish]

    May 9, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The result is something almost psychedelically meandering - or simply arbitrary and incoherent.

Audience Reviews for The Demons

  • Feb 01, 2017
    With impressive long takes, a refined mise-en-scène and an interesting, almost fly-on-the-wall approach, this is a delicate look at a boy's life and fears as he learns about the world, but sadly the film gets lost with a tangential subplot that focuses on another character.
