Critic Reviews for The Witch: Part 1 - The Subversion

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (3)

The beauty of The Witch is the dark and sublimely satisfying place Park takes us to, once we realize our hero's true motivation: survival.

Top Critic

The deadly charisma of the key performers, notably newcomer Kim Da-mi as the teenage Ja-yoon, should ensure plenty of interest in further chapters in this story.

December 15, 2018 | Full Review…

An often mesmerizing, occasionally kooky but thoroughly entertaining thriller.

June 27, 2018 | Full Review…

Director Park Hoon-jung and lead actress Kim Da-mi lay the groundwork for something imaginative, violent, and stuffed to the gills with palpable crunch.

September 10, 2021 | Full Review…

Plenty bloody and brutal and un-freaking-hinged, and full of twists and shifts, the work done earlier gives the rampaging chaos more a more emotional oomph than simply watching cannon fodder villains get dismantled in vicious, gory fashion.

... [writer/director Hoon-jung] Park masterfully weaves each [narrative aspect] into and out of each other until the audience is on the edge of their seat for a ride filled with countless surprises.
