Ratings & Reviews

  1. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film Next of Kin

    "Death of analogue" rules and emphasizes the nightmarish-disturbing atmosphere of the film which is a fine (but not sensational) mix of action and horror-mystery. Recommended for fans of 80s B serie horrors.

  2. Endre's rating of the film Next of Kin

    Haunted by the nightmare visions of many masters, and indebted to a certain silent film brilliance harking back to Murnau (there's some shockingly moody cuts, beautifully uncanny silhouettes and melodiously disturbing slow-motion here), but creates a mood all of its own, desperately infused by that maxim so dear to the horror genre: remember that you shall die. And remember that you do not have control of your life.

  3. ExperimentoFilm's rating of the film Next of Kin

  4. Paolo Simeone's rating of the film Next of Kin

    Surprising. A weird take on Argento cinematic style settled in the outback with soundtrack by Klaus Schultze.

  5. --'s rating of the film Next of Kin

    Thoughtfully constructed, well-paced, and suspenseful. A canny red herring leverages key audience assumptions about subgenre and pairs them with a traditional plot twist. Kerin and Jarratt are attractive, naturalistic, and relatable leads, so the stakes seem high when their lives are threatened. It's easy to wink at the film's shortcomings, including an outrageous (if fun) finale, when so thoroughly entertained.
