This is an alternately handsome and harrowing ghost story, about a civilized society haunted by its own unspeakable needs.

Film Inquiry

Angelica is a slow burn but rewards patience as the director takes his time to lay out his themes, introduce his characters and slowly ratchet up the melodrama.

Austin Chronicle

The supernatural elements brush up against some heavy topics, some actual real-life horrors, but like any encounter with a ghost, Angelica is likely to simply leave you cold.

Even Angelica's most juvenile gags are a perfect synthesis of gross-out silliness and atmospheric scares.

Angelica feels like Alias Grace meets The Babadook.

It is a rare treat to encounter a period horror film which says a lot about the relationship between man and woman and man-versus-nature, whilst providing a satisfyingly eerie psychological drama.

For fans of the Gothic there are many sources of pleasure here.
