Critic Reviews for The Father's Shadow (A Sombra do Pai)

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (1)

  • Not entirely satisfying, it's nonetheless a curiously poignant fable of profound premature loss, both enhanced and somewhat muddled by its slippery occult elements.

    August 7, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The Father's Shadow is a deeply moving supernatural tale about grief and loneliness, as a young girl discovers her power and agency in a hard, cold world.

    July 23, 2019 | Full Review…
  • There's no denying the young director's ability to conjure a doomed ambience out of an array of seemingly non-descript locations and inanimate objects.

    October 26, 2018 | Full Review…
  • THE FATHER'S SHADOW has potential with its exploration of grief and loss, but it feels lost as to what direction it wants to take at times.

    June 23, 2020 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • For fans of big scares, The Father's Shadow will leave little to be impressed by, but as a simmering family drama with supernatural elements, the film bears some considerable emotional heft and spooky visuals.

    February 14, 2020 | Full Review…
  • An emotional horror drama about how working class people are turned into walking corpses by capitalism and what effect this has on their families.
