Movie Reviews

  • what makes the new psychological thriller “Antebellum” effective, is not just studying the past of America's original sin, but deftly showing how it still paints our present day; a strong performance by Janelle Monae will more than keep you invested
    3 of 4 by Brian Truitt [USA Today ]
  • the result is bland and aggravating; "Antebellum" reads like the corporate spawn of "Black horror," pieced together from Twitter anti-racist soundbites and crafted for maximum clout
    Review rate : C- by Beatrice Loayza [The Playlist ]
  • in the end, "Antebellum" is undone by a lack of empathy and emotion. It has no real perspective on the past and thus fails to make any real impact on the present
    by Jourdain Searles [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Bush and Renz use blunt force to convey their film's social messaging, and it's at the expense of everything else. History is horror here, and it's undermined by a script lacking in finesse, tension, characterization, and narrative build
    2 of 5 by Meagan Navarro [Bloody Disgusting ]
  • an artful and provocative movie about the enduring horror of America's original sin, "Antebellum" can't follow through on its own concept
    Review rate : C+ by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
  • a mind-blowing -- and incredibly timely -- horror movie; terrifying social thriller "Antebellum" lands like an explosive mortar -- a potent, politically charged cross between "The Handmaid's Tale" and an M. Night Shyamalan movie
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
