Wounds is a film that seems simple up top and gets more and more upsetting as it unspools. With a stellar cast and a story that gets under your skin, Wounds is a dizzying and disorienting spin into paranoid horror.

Drinking, drugs, violence in uneven horror mystery.

The plot is convoluted and never decides what the story is really about, which just makes you feel excluded from the story.

This would-be slow-burn horror oversimplifies its dynamics instead, wastes its cast, and stretches its beats to the point where there are no real highs or lows.
November 21, 2019
It all leads to one of the most disturbing, icky final sequences of the year, a tour de force of entomological terror that leaves enough unsaid to later linger in the subconscious.
November 18, 2019
A pastiche of Cronenberg, Lynch, and Japanese horror that never reaches the height of its promise. In this case, the whole is less than its parts. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's a work of sticky, unyielding dread - one of those misunderstood gems that comes along every so often, catching you off-guard with its skin-crawling concept and arcane atmosphere.

Within confines of its gimmicky setup, Anvari delivers an intimate, multi-layered story about an unmoored soul who first recoils from and is then devoured by an ineffable evil.

It is, perhaps, too easy to say that 'Wounds' intentionally leaves itself open to interpretation. Instead, it raises thoughtful questions that are not easily answered.

Overall, Wounds is a gruesome, feverish, cockroach-infested, alcoholic nightmare...but low-key in an enjoyable way. Call me crazy.
October 24, 2019
Anvari doesn't create many highlights with the movie, which only tends to connect when acting reverential to Cronenberg, trying body horror on for size.

Wounds is plagued by the vast emptiness that motivates its leading man.

October 23, 2019
The premise sounds like something a peeved off parent would come up with to get their teenage child to play outdoors more often.
October 22, 2019
Wounds is a peculiar disappointment that dabbles in too many genres while never succeeding adequately in any particular one.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/10

Wounds holds interest by creating a truly oppressive experience. [Full Review in Spanish]

Wounds is two-thirds of a moral deterioration haunter that culminates with abrupt disappointment.

October 19, 2019
The actual scares and suspense within this horror-thriller are far from frightening.
October 18, 2019
The thing ... Anvari does best is give the movie an incredibly filthy look. It's about decay, but the decay you can't see ... [that's] just behind the veneer of a wall. Or a person

A film with two halves that often seem at odds with each other.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
October 18, 2019
If a disturbing and skin-crawling horror is what you're looking for, there's plenty to admire - or be repulsed by - in Wounds.
