Eventually grows too humorlessly turgid to be as impactful as intended.

It sounds pretty straightforward, and yet Mystery of the Night is so dedicated to its own completely original brand of weirdness that it's impressive.

"Mystery of the Night" is definitely an interesting film, which occasionally takes its narrative approach and the overall atmosphere a step too far, although not to a point that faults its overall quality.

December 25, 2019 | Full Review…

A beautifully crafted, slow-burn fable mashing together powerful forces like magic, love, and revenge into an animalistic display of passion and punishment.

August 8, 2019 | Full Review…

It's very easy to recommend Mystery of the Night as an example of something exciting happening on the other side of the world that deserves attention.

August 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The entire feel of the movie feels staged, as befitting the play. There's a kind of artifice to the presentation, and it's here that I think the movie might lose viewers.
