Exorcisms, séances, scurrying phantoms, slamming doors, blood rituals, possessed children, upside-down crosses - The Offering leaves few horror devices unused.
[An] uninspired, nonsensical mishmash, which crudely cobbles together second-hand religious imagery, abrasively noisy jump-scares, and - for some reason - techno-phobia.
The result is the cinematic equivalent of combining every paint color on a canvas: a murky mess.
It doesn't outstay its welcome, and for those seeking a straightforward slice of old fashioned horror for an evening's entertainment, it has plenty to offer.
The only scary thing of the film is the poor and obnoxious visual language of it. [Full review in Spanish]
A bunch of references to other horror films poorly connected in a saturated story. [Full review in Spanish]
There's no way of saying the film fails because it tries to break the formula, it even feels like a bad parody of other films. [Full review in Spanish]
It lacks any logic or narrative coherence, it also makes a fool of the fans of the genre. [Full review in Spanish]
Whatever original premise it had is diluted with every cliche in the horror genre. [Full review in Spanish]
The film steals elements from supernatural classics such as The Omen, The Exorcist, and The Ring. ... The elements don't add up to anything more than a muddle.
Tong manages to cobble together a nice image now and then, but most of The Offering is painfully ineffectual and makes for a tedious viewing experience.
The Offering is a bland rehash of "inspirations" from past horror films, none of which are re-imagined with much to offer.
Terrible horror movie, goes straight to the list of the worst of the year. It has a lousy script, absurd situations, badly directed, terrible performances, taken all the existing situations of horror movies. Really the worst of the year.
