Verified Review

Phenomenal cinematography and acting, as expected from Noomi Rapace. I went into this having seen no trailers or anything and I wish I'd seen literally anything else. I feel like I just got trolled. This movie shouldn't have been made.

It’s alright. A little underwhelming.

The movie's stark Nordic mood and obscure mystery are as coolly immersive as nearly anything on screen this year — and in the hammy world of supernatural horror, that ambiguity alone feels like a small, spooky gift.

Though eerie and quietly deadpan, the film circles its grab bag of themes for so long that it also becomes tedious.

No matter how pure your intentions nor how real your pain, these ancient myths all teach us, debts always come due, and the chilling denouement of Jóhannsson’s dark, deliberate debut suggests that is what Lamb is: a modern-day take on some ancient, pre-Disneyfication fairy tale or a nursery rhyme with a sinister history encoded into its Spartan melody.
