Movie Info

In Victorian London, innocent shop girl Constance falls in love and marries Dr. Joseph Barton, a medical researcher. She has a sexual awakening with her husband, but their passion is cut short after the life-threatening birth of daughter Angelica. Their puritanical doctors order abstinence, condemning Constance for lascivious appetites. Sexual repression leads to obsession, and Constance becomes increasingly protective of Angelica. Joseph's secrets fuel the growing conflicts. Then, late at night, the household is disrupted by what appears to be a paranormal predator. The eerie visits multiply, evermore menacing and vividly evoking Constance's deepest fears. To cleanse the home of its terrors, she reaches out to spiritualist Anne Montague. But the arrival of this charismatic woman brings even more complexities to the deteriorating Barton household. Constance places her deepest trust in Anne, and together they fight against a force that may be more sinisterly human than supernatural...

Critic Reviews for Angelica

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

Angelica feels like Alias Grace meets The Babadook.

Top Critic

This is an alternately handsome and harrowing ghost story, about a civilized society haunted by its own unspeakable needs.

November 16, 2017

The supernatural elements brush up against some heavy topics, some actual real-life horrors, but like any encounter with a ghost, Angelica is likely to simply leave you cold.

November 16, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Even Angelica's most juvenile gags are a perfect synthesis of gross-out silliness and atmospheric scares.

November 15, 2017 | Full Review…

Combining (aptly) stuffy domestic drama with the psychological ambiguities of a ghost story, Angelica leaves us unsure whether Constance's actions are a product of delusion or enlightenment.

April 11, 2020 | Full Review…

It is a rare treat to encounter a period horror film which says a lot about the relationship between man and woman and man-versus-nature, whilst providing a satisfyingly eerie psychological drama.
