Solidly creepy in parts, but agonizingly slow and confusing in others. Flops over and wiggles around like a dead fish for the last 5 minutes.
Death of the parents is again at the center of a horror movie. With "Relic" (2020), introduces again the feeling of pain turned into terror within a family. Bertino uses these resources to build an atmosphere that is always unsettling. Apart from some imbalances in its execution, we are facing a solid film that again, as in "The strangers" (2008), builds an external threat that is the mirror of an internal flaw.
Awesome moody horror movie. It's very unsettling! Uses loss, fear, depression to create the atmosphere. It was genuinely terrifying. The jumpscares were executed really well.
Stupid slow and stupid is what you’d have to be to sit through the whole movie.
An oppressive little horror film. Its well made but with all of the madness going on, it can get quite wearying.
The film is all about madness at best. Main characters lose their mind and we watch their hallucinations. All the religious references in the film leads to nowhere. The film has a few good jump scares and quite a good beginning which makes you think the rest of the film is going to get somewhere. Unfortunately it doesn’t. I wouldn’t watch it again, nor would I make my friends watch it.
There were some scary moments, but I'm going to have to say that it was kind of repetitive and a dull.
It did scare me. The plot is very basic though. For me, I like that they kept the plot simple. The movie deals with death and isolation. 7/10
