Movie Reviews

  • with echoes of Roman Polanski's "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Babadook", "Son" is a forever twisting tale of terror and trauma, featuring some excellent performances across the board
    4 of 5 by Kat Hughes [The Hollywood News ]
  • with "Son", Ivan Kavanagh applies that same skillset to a familiar setup, infusing refreshing style and dread to create a powerfully discomforting depiction of just how far a mother would go for her son
    3.5 of 5 by Meagan Navarro [Bloody Disgusting ]
  • it may lapse into cult horror cliche from time to time; but a spooky atmosphere and a strong lead performance from Andi Matichak ensure that, despite these shortcomings, Son remains a decent and entertaining horror thriller that is at least worth a look
    4 of 5 by Graeme Robertson [Flickering Myth ]
  • Irish director Ivan Kavanagh's U.S.-set feature is an interesting but uneasy mix of supernatural horror and earnest drama; "Son" is twisty, violent, well-crafted and cast enough to easily hold viewer attention
    by Dennis Harvey [Variety ]
  • generally well-made and well-acted, this horror/thriller still doesn't really work thanks to a repetitive, fairly predictable storyline and many upsetting scenes of a child screaming in pain
    2 of 5 by Jeffrey M. Anderson [Common Sense Media ]
  • a psychological horror film helped immensely by its ferocious lead performance; Ivan Kavanagh and Andi Matichak do a remarkable job of capturing an amped-up version of everyday parental paranoia
    by Noel Murray [Los Angeles Times ]
  • a compelling, nightmarish thriller; Upholding genre tropes whilst subverting them, "Son" is an unsettling fever-dream drenched in unspeakable acts that leave viewers on edge until the end
    3.5 of 5 by Debopriya Dutta [ScreenRant ]
