Agnes (2021)



Critic Consensus: It may not deliver as many straight-up scares as genre fans expect, but Agnes takes a gratifyingly unusual approach to well-worn territory.

Critic Reviews for Agnes

All Critics (52) | Top Critics (11)

A strange and beautiful tale of sex, religion, and dysfunction at the Carmelite convent of Santa Teresa.

December 12, 2021 | Full Review…

A choppy, muddled mess of a movie that has its own identity crisis of what it wants to be or to show.

December 10, 2021 | Full Review…

For all of its ruffled habits and bleeding eyes, Agnes is far sadder than it is scary (quite, versus not at all), and often sillier than it is sad.

December 10, 2021 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Reece shows an intuitive understanding of when to move the camera, and -- more importantly -- when not to move the camera. It's all very elegantly put together.

December 10, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Constantly surprises and entertains throughout.

December 9, 2021 | Full Review…

This choppy film has little to say, particularly about cloistered women, despite being named after a possessed sister and dedicating a plotline to an ex-nun.
