Critic Reviews for Bethany

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

"Bethany" is polished, well-acted and filled with memorably disgusting images, but its portrait of a frazzled adult survivor of child abuse is ultimately formulaic and a little sleazy.

April 6, 2017 | Full Review…

One of the best and smartest genre offerings in a good long while.

December 21, 2021 | Rating: 9.5/10 | Full Review…

It is too bad that there was not more macabre meat on the blistering bone surrounding the household hysterics of a wounded woman on the edge of dismissive delusional destruction.

November 8, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Bethany has some interesting ideas that get buried in a far too familiar jump scare thriller. There's potential here, but it doesn't fully get explored.

April 8, 2017 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

During its most inventive moments, "Bethany" resembles one of the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" sequels.

April 6, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

In general the film is well executed, but just lacks the creativity it needed from Bressack the writer to set itself apart from so many similar nightmare fests.
