  • Producers couldn't have picked a better title, though. After I left my Friday afternoon screening, attended by a whopping two other people, I felt far from satisfied. Empty, you might say.

  • "Empty" is an apt way to describe this overlong and sluggish supernatural horror pic.

    November 11, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • This long, slow-burn sci-fi tale takes its simple "urban legend" idea into ambitious territory, but, by the time it wraps up, it all makes too little sense to justify sitting through it.

    November 9, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • While it does offer a new angle on a familiar horror setup, spinning into an entirely different subgenre in the process, The Empty Man stretches out an underbaked idea to an excruciating degree.

    November 2, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • A movie that makes Fox's polarising and similarly-confounding A Cure For Wellness now look like a masterpiece and "almost" make you yearn for the simpler "delights" of the much-derided Slender Man.

  • Although Disney has changed the name of the studio in February, they didn't even spare the expense to swap out the 20th Century Fox logo and presenting credit on the DCP sent to theaters.

Audience Reviews for The Empty Man

  • Oct 23, 2020
    The Empty Man (2020) B+ (Vague hints at spoilers) Walking in late, the opening was so different from the 15 seconds of trailer I saw, that I wasn't sure I was in the right movie at first. That is a really good way to start a horror. The confusion this movie levies at you is extreme. With each explanation, they hand you another mystery. By the end, you can not tell what is real and what is illusion. Usually this is my pet peeve for horror, but they explained it well and used it as a warning that the final event was approaching. By the end, you could see it was a logical and well thought out story, unlike the hot steaming mess that is Tennet. I have two complaints. I went in to see a Freddy Krueger/Candy Man style horror and got something much more twisted instead. And I feel the main character lacked agency - that is my chief complaint. He never reached a point where it felt like he was even trying to avoid the ending that occurred. The reason this occurred is really quite clever but a clever mistake is still a mistake. Overall, well worth the watching for horror fans.
