Critic Reviews for Twixt

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (14)

  • Not really scary, although there are some nice creepy visuals here and there.

    August 9, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • For the most part this qualified return to form will delight all fans of Coppola, especially those who enjoyed his gothic romances, Dementia 13 and Dracula.

    September 16, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The Godfather it's not, but this had more vigor and immediacy than either Youth Against Youth or Tetro.

    September 14, 2011 | Full Review…
  • People raised their hands in joy when Coppola announced he was returning to horror after his recent wobbly adventures in the arthouse. They'll be begging him to reconsider - or perhaps just simply to stop - after seeing this.

    September 13, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Easily [Coppola's] silliest work ever.

    September 11, 2011 | Full Review…
  • The incompetent way that Twixt is shot might have been done intentionally by Coppola to match the pulpy B-movie storyline, but the result is laughable.

    Not sure it entirely works, but I loved the dream sequences and Elle Fanning in this. The ending was flat and I hoped for more, but this kept me entertained and was creepy mostly, so no real complaints.

    On his not quite standing room book signing tour, Hall Baltimore(Val Kilmer) comes across a town that is so small that it does not have a bookstore but does have a giant clock with seven faces. So, while signing books in a hardware store, he encounters an actual fan, Sheriff Bobby LaGrange(Bruce Dern) who shows him the latest body in the morgue. But what Hall is even more interested in is a drink, being drawn to a bar where Edgar Allan Poe(Ben Chaplin) used to hang out. To be honest, "Twixt" does not really work as horror, mystery or personal filmmaking, as Francis Ford Coppola takes a step back artistically in his late period. But that's not to say there is nothing of interest here, as there is just enough eccentricity and weirdness to at least merit a look.

    Its got all of the elements to make a successful quirky, horror comedy but Coppola never really brings it all home. I think if more of the film was like the Poe dream sequences (interesting writing and a unique visual style), I would have liked this more.

    Francis, I admire you very much, but this movie sucks.
