Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Now von Trier's trying his hand at the horror porn genre without abandoning the genital close-ups, making Antichrist a sort of horror porn squared."
‑ Sarah Boslaugh, Playback:stl
"O único elemento que merece elogios, nesta cópia patética de O Exorcista, é a bela Carla Gravina; o resto deve ser exorcizado de nossas memórias."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"It involves Satan, a possessed woman's tongue and a billy goat's butthole. Again, the distinction between scary and unpleasant becomes revoltingly clear."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
