Critic Reviews of "Apostle (2018)"VarietyOctober 12, 2018
A Gothic horror mystery that's less like an adrenaline shot to the heart than a rusty, hand-cranked drill to the skull.AV ClubOctober 11, 2018
Evans' signature intensity translates seamlessly in Apostle...Los Angeles TimesOctober 11, 2018
Shifting his energies to a Victorian-era island blood cult hasn't dimmed Evans' taste for feverish body harm, but it's more clearly laid bare his narrative shortcomings.Entertainment WeeklyOctober 11, 2018
Feels like a mash-up of 2015's arthouse chiller The Witch and 1973's original The Wicker Man, without being as engagingly creepy as either one of those movies.Hollywood ReporterOctober 02, 2018
Evans will likely disappoint many of the fans he has attracted here; while the film does build to some gory battles, it's hardly a thrill ride.indieWireSeptember 26, 2018
By the time Apostle arrives at its big reveal, the movie has veered off on so many tangled pathways that the ending can't resolve them all.GuardianOctober 12, 2018
That rarest of treats: a horror movie that starts out as one thing, and finishes having mutated into another.GuardianOctober 12, 2018
This is a timely tussle with a nation's collective sense of shame.Times (UK)October 11, 2018
Alas, everything here is muted build-up with little pay-off. Psychological realism is abandoned. Characters switch loyalties and temperaments for no reason.Discussing FilmOctober 11, 2018
the brutality Evans uses so frequently is portrayed in such a gut-wrenching way that you can't help but squealSlant MagazineOctober 11, 2018
The film's victims are simply pawns in a super-gory bacchanal, which is aesthetically striking but emotionally dull.Battleship PretensionOctober 11, 2018
Much like the cult it depicts, Apostle has a lot of powerful forces at its disposal, but can't seem to marshal those forces well enough to define its goals, much less achieve them.
