Critic Reviews for The Black String

All Critics (7)

The Black String may well be a bit too close to the DNA of It Follows, but it manages to form its own identity with a level of body horror that's satisfyingly grisly, anchored by a Muniz performance of nervous energy.

Psychological horror has swearing, violence, sex, and gore.

Elevating this script from a derivative and simple one is no easy task, but Muniz does it effortlessly.

It is an average movie with an above average performance from Frankie Muniz - yes that Frankie Muniz

October 2, 2019 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

Its premise isn't the strongest or most original, but [Frankie] Muniz's vanity-free performance in the lead role effortlessly carries this mostly entertaining film from beginning to end.
