I am shook to my core. (by caleb_bru)
I LOVED THIS!!! I am shook to my core. Gareth Evans exceeded my expectations by a long shot, and they were already super high to begin with. It had my insides churning from start to finish and long after. This easily takes a spot right next to Mandy as my favorite movies of the year. The characters and the story are so compelling and mysterious and I absolutely loved the way it all unfolded. The violence and the cinematography are just breathtaking. It was disturbing and magical and nerve-racking all at the same time. From the music to the fantastic performances to the excellent screenplay, <more>
it was just all-around perfection. This was some truly phenomenal storytelling from Gareth Evans. I cannot recommend it enough!
If you like visceral horror with hints of 'The Raid' then this is for you (by thetheyuji)
Don't believe any bad reviews on this. The movie knows what it wants to be and does it extremely well, just like the Raid movies. Well acted, very well shot and it ultimately very satisfying too. Some parts of the raid I felt were horror'esque in terms of the frightening tension and you can certainly tell its the same director for Apostle. Gareth doesn't shy away from hardcore violence and it fits. There aren't any jump scares per se but ramped up tension throughout, I got the feeling of the wickerman cult, island, sacrifices for crops etc but with more lore and reveals <more>
which I liked. If you like the raid movies, horror, or satisfying revenge thrillers then you will love this!
Its a sin that this film did not get a theatrical release. (by eliasmmorris)
I cannot believe there are any bad reviews for this film. I'll keep this brief.This film is an absolute gift for anyone who loves true horror. Much like The VVitch it is a beautifully acted and written period piece set in the early 1900's. The pacing is perfect, the tone is driving and rhythmic, never was there a point during this film where I was bored. The characters were fleshed out and easy to empathize with. Overall I thought this was fantastic. I think it's almost a waste that its a netflix film and did not get a theatrical release. Anyone who loves the idea of paganism, <more>
cults, religion without pandering to Christians which is what The Conjuring does, even though I am a fan of those films , or period pieces will love this film. Do your self a favor and give it a chance.
Apostle absolutely blew me away and kept me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning until the crazy, climactic end. Evans creates a tense, atmospheric, twisting thriller that all comes crashing down into its horrific end.
Not a fan of modern horror, but wow. (by odmanout)
While I enjoyed the VVitch, it seemed a bit slow. This movie takes that tone and runs with it. I would say it's sort of like Wicker Man meets the VVitch with a soundtrack like There Will Be Blood. I read a review that said there was a ton of violence especially towards animals . Made me think it would be as bad as Canibal Holocost. That, it was not. I assumed I wasn't ready for the amount of violence, but honestly, it was done with some restraint. Enough to frighten, but being a fan of the raid, I could be biased. I honestly didn't think Gareth would have the chops to make a good <more>
horror film, but lo and behold, the cinematography was excellent, acting was great, direction and pace was fine. Maybe the VVitch made me ready for something slower, but the supernatural elements were a bit of a surprise. Great horror movie. Watch the trailer. It's exactly what the trailer says it is.
Before I even get into the laughable complaints made by the clueless, I must write that this is the first film in a very long time that I found compelling and didn't notice the "long running time." Some films deserve to take their time to reveal the story. If that bothers you--go watch the latest inane, super hero CGI fest that spoon feeds you your shallow entertainment.The idea that Man corrupts religion for his own ends is the main theme. It is obvious that many viewers have lost the ability to actually watch a film and grasp its concepts. They complain about "no <more>
plot" when it's right there on the screen. If the film is not edited with the frenetic pace of a television commercial--it is considered slow.Yes, there are thematic similarities to the original Wicker Man not the pathetic Americanized atrocity made recently but that is just due to the use of an isolated setting and Pagan religion and mythology. The plots are distinctly different.Someone made a comment about the use of a "Zippo" lighter being somehow how bad the film was. Quick research which obviously the filmmaker did shows that "automatic" lighters where available by 1889 and the particular lighter shown was available in 1905! Zippo did not invent lighters--they just refined them and mass produced them for WW2. Don't claim knowledge if you don't posses it.Another complaint was the island's village was too primitive for 1905? Really, Hand-hewn buildings look just like this. Again, every idiot who can thumb type thinks they know better than the filmmaker.This is not a review of the film but more a review of the proliferation of useless, pointless "opinion" blurbs that people believe are reviews. A review is also not just a recounting of the plot. Just typing "this movie was a waste of time" is not relevant to anyone but the typist.If a film about man's corruption of religion and an creepy use of Celtic/Earth mythology acting as the metaphor and some gruesome violence thrown in doesn't hold your interest maybe Transformers would suit you better.
Apostle: A truly savage Horror Film which only falls down on it's excessive running time. Thomas Dan Stevens goes to an isolated island to track down his sister who has been abducted by a strange religious cult, they worship She, the Goddess of the Island. The religion was founded by three men who claim to be escaped felons, imprisoned for treason. The leader and Prophet of the Cult is Malcolm Michael Sheen , he preaches a gospel of sharing and equality, the island is presented as a refuge for the down trodden. It soon becomes obvious that Malcolm has a group of enforcers who see <more>
that his orders are carried out and who seek out dissent and blasphemy.Thomas saves Malcolm from an assassins dagger and gains his trust. Wounded in the attack, thomas is nursed by Malcolm's daughter Andrea Lucy Boynton who is independent minded. As Malcolm and his deputy Quinn Mark Lewis Jones discover the conveyor of the ransom is on the island and seek him out. Getting crazier and crazier, going from mere repressive Theocrats to mad Prophets.Apostle is reminiscent of The Wicker Man at times with the need to appease a Deity to secure the harvest and also has Lovecraftian influences involving the worship of a Sea Goddess; it even made me think of the recent Cold Skin. Torture, murder and ritual execution abound and this is not a film for the squeamish. The tension builds but at times Thomas an ex-priest goes into asides regarding his lack of belief. But he does become a one-man army determined to rescue his sister and vanquish the Cult leaders and their thugs.A good Horror Film rather than a great one is delivered by director and screenwriter Garth Evans. Apostle might well benefit from a cut of perhaps 20 minutes in the 130 minutes running time. 7.5/10. On Netflix.
I thought Apostle was a great period piece,i was reading some the negative reviews about this movie.I don't know what the hell some of these reviewers were watching or talking about but it sure as hell was'nt the movie that i was watching.This movie was very well made ,the acting was first rate. The story was great kept my attention folks should definetly give this a look see.
