Critic Reviews for The Golem

All Critics (28) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (24) | Rotten (4)

  • The English-language Israeli production may not wow stateside genre fans, but its approach to the source material is emotionally and intellectually sincere, enacted seriously, if not always engrossingly, by cast and crew.

  • A well-crafted and idiosyncratic supernatural thriller, the film plays like a mix of "Frankenstein," "The Witch," and some of the Coen brothers' more explicitly Jewish movies.

    January 31, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The Golem is a gorgeous movie that pays respect to it's roots while also updating the legend, quite terrifyingly, to be relevant with the times. It's a feminist historical set piece that is sure to fcatch your eye, a home run of a debut film.

    June 24, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Unfortunately, the first part lingers on too long and ends up testing the viewer's patience and care for the characters before the creature shows up and things take a turn for the more interesting.

  • Despite having violence almost forced into its narrative, The Golem is a reflection on maternity. [Full Review in Spanish]

    December 3, 2019 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…
  • Too intellectual for horror film lovers and too extreme for those looking for art cinema, The Golem ends up being - in several senses - halfway. [Full review in Spanish]
