Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Of course, von Trier wants us to react, to be repulsed, shocked, offended. Mission accomplished."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"Antichrist is a boldly personal film, tossing all von Trier's ideas about faith, fear, and human nature into an unfettered phantasmagoria, full of repulsive visions and fierce scorn."
‑ Noel Murray, AV Club
"There will be no thumbs up or down ... [The film] is neither disgusting ... nor is it one of the great films. It is a transitional work made by an artist clearly in crisis."
‑ Larry Gross, Film Comment Magazine
"Because of its impassioned conviction, placing it on a scale of value is practically irrelevant."
‑ David Keyes,
"... another provocation that is at once beautiful and perverse, personal and cynical, and filled with his sour vision..."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Parallax View
"Von Trier, never exactly an optimist, has never been this gloomy and pessimistic. Antichrist is the feel-bad movie of the year."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Self-loathing, mean, ugly and perfectly made, Antichrist is probably the best film ever that you'd recommend to absolutely no one."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"...absurdly abstract in a way von Trier's best films are not."
‑ Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
"Before this movie goes careening desperately, hysterically, insanely off the rails, this is an ambitious, scary peek into pulsating, evil human hurt."
‑ Will Leitch, Deadspin
"It is unrelenting, terrifying and profoundly powerful. And it is really, really ballsy; a claim that viewers will recognise as being highly ironic considering the ball-related events that take place within the film."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"Antichrist is a unique form of cruel and unusual punishment: an unrelenting orgy of graphic sex, violence and cynicism that also manages to be wildly pretentious."
‑ Christopher Kelly, Dallas Morning News
"Antichrist ends up being more unnerving than it is terrifying, and a lot funnier than it's supposed to be."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Von Trier admits he has no idea what any of this s--- means, but only a filmmaker of his skill could make such an inchoate mess so strangely entertaining."
‑ Steve Dollar, Stop Smiling
"It's audacious, gruesome and pushes to the extreme limits of acceptable cinema content: but it is never any of those things to exclude ordinary viewers."
‑ Mike Edwards, What Culture
"Von Trier is a prankster so any attempt to guess at WTF he had in mind could just end up with the Danish auteur pulling your leg. The Fox may have said it best:"Chaos Reigns""
‑ Brian Holcomb, Kinetofilm
