It holds a lot of unfulfilled potential that could have benefited from a concrete theme.
December 8, 2021
The film's tenor is far too disjointed to make any sense as a whole
Full Review | Original Score: 6.6/10
August 4, 2021
The arty style hangs on in there, so the film always looks good, but the narrative wanders and ends quite abruptly, only hinting finally at any meaning behind all of this.

October 18, 2021
Along with the disjointed genre shift, the attempt at camp and black humor results in cliches and all-around odd character choices. While the film was well produced, these perplexing writing decisions become too much of a distraction.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 4, 2021
Not a pleasant watch and in no way, shape, or form scary. ... Agnes suffers from a crisis of genre identity.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
June 17, 2021
As Agnes stands in its format here, it's far too uneven and unresolved.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 17, 2021
Contains some bold choices but ends up tonally uneven. Come for the sweaty exorcisms, stay for the personal drama, prepare to be slightly underwhelmed.

December 9, 2021
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.
December 10, 2021
A choppy, muddled mess of a movie that has its own identity crisis of what it wants to be or to show.
November 23, 2021
A callow facsimile of "deep" - horror movie deep.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 8, 2021
It's the kind of feature that's going to connect with select viewers, while angering everyone else.
Full Review | Original Score: C
December 6, 2021
just as things are really heating up, suddenly we're whiplashed into an entirely different film, one in which Agnes's best friend in the convent, Mary, struggles to create a life outside of it...It's all a bit of bait and switch.

November 6, 2021
Promising, but incomplete.
December 10, 2021
While confronting some provocative themes, the film lacks the dexterity to effectively juggle elements of broad comedy, gory horror, and introspective drama.
December 9, 2021
[T]he two sections don't form a unified whole.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 2, 2022
... boring, silly, blasphemous, bloody... as long as it seems random or wrong. Too tame to be considered "nunsploitation" yet too silly to be thought of as subvert, Agnes wastes its cast likes it wastes our time.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4
December 8, 2021
[Its] two sharply differentiated parts add up to much less than a coherent whole, in addition to being too underdeveloped and tonally wobbly to satisfy in themselves.
December 10, 2021
The result is unlikely to please most viewers.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 14, 2021
Agnes is ... a drama of isolation and melancholy, and an investigation of the ways in which faith both shields us from and disguises the harsher realities of a mundane world.
June 25, 2021
You'll find all the possession movies staples in Agnes but where the movie really sets itself apart from the rest of the subgenre is the deep dive into those most affected by it's cruel demon.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
