Critic Reviews for Field Guide to Evil

All Critics (6)

Off-base and so colored by modern obsessions and prejudices.

While each film is from a separate country, the similarities highlight what folklore shares across cultures.

Overly long, with only a few stories working coherently, but elicits a cosy, Tales from the Crypt fireplace feel.

September 4, 2018 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

Bewitches through mood, theme and style sometimes more than story, though the fact that some shorts stand out more than others is emblematic of the format above all else.

August 21, 2018 | Full Review…

This is 'folk horror' par excellence, hopping the globe in search of the collective origins of our errant unconscious.

Strickland's piece feels very unlike his previous work. Whereas in his other films, the overarching feeling is one of dread or anxiety, with this project he allows himself and his audience to have fun while still giving them a good jolt.
