Audience Reviews for The Falling

  • Jul 08, 2016
    I really enjoyed this. I can see why someone wouldn't, if they were expecting a horror movie. It's not, it's a psychological mystery. The whole thing is clearly a metaphor for teenage female sexuality. I got that, and I'm usually the last one to "get" this type of thing. I think it's pretty well done. It's quite creepy but still manages to be engaging. Admittedly, the brother is a bit of a wtf, but honestly I don't think this one is to be taken too literally.

    Very much in the tradition of Picnic At Hanging Rock and Beautiful Creatures, The Falling is an idiosyncratic and wonderfully acted masterpiece.
