Critic Reviews for The Night

All Critics (60) | Top Critics (14) | Fresh (48) | Rotten (12)

  • It delivers a clammy shiver of disquiet.

    March 30, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The Night defies easy explanation. There's more lurking here, in the lies we tell ourselves and each other, that you should experience for yourself.

    March 21, 2021 | Full Review…
  • A goosebumps-inducing affair, "The Night" is at its most effectively unsettling when the focus is to evoke fear as opposed to when it physically shows what's haunting the characters trapped in their respective secret tragedies.

    February 22, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Spooky and unsettling, director Kourosh Ahari's eerie suspense yarn The Night got under my skin.

    January 30, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The Night withholds any ... catharsis while also whiffing on the terror, ending on a purposefully ambiguous note that irritates more than it entices.

    June 5, 2021 | Full Review…
  • It may be conventional - shadows loom; people aren't what they seem - but Kourosh Ahari, the film's director, shows he has a knack for elegant spookiness.
