Critic Reviews for Madhouse

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

might be regarded either as straight (if incoherent) slice and dice, or as a subjective insight into a damaged woman's psychotic meltdown. It works either way, but is richer and more satisfying if viewed as an early prelude to the The Babadook.

Fans of gore should be for the most part satisfied.
