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.
January 28, 2020
The plot is convoluted and never decides what the story is really about, which just makes you feel excluded from the story.

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
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]

Wounds will definitely gross you out, but there isn't enough meat in these bones to keep your interest through the millionth sight of a cockroach or jump scare at the sound of an incoming text.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
February 6, 2019
The underdeveloped mystery never satisfies. The result is a general sense of bewilderment as the credits roll and you realize that everything is meaningless.

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

Unfortunately, [director] Babak Anvari... is limited to building a conventional horror film. [Full review in Spanish]
March 26, 2019
Tries to toss so many things at its audience that the narrative ends up crash-landing very earlier on.

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.
January 30, 2019
Wounds [is] an absurdly indulgent movie.
October 19, 2019
The actual scares and suspense within this horror-thriller are far from frightening.
January 31, 2019
...laughably ludicrous and not for a good reason.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
October 17, 2019
It's a shame the audience has to wait the entire runtime to see what, in a better film, would have been an inciting event rather than a last-minute stinger.

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

February 12, 2019
Babak Anvari's latest never comes together despite a fun Armie Hammer performance.
February 28, 2020
Drinking, drugs, violence in uneven horror mystery.

Wounds creeps and crawls and pokes and bleeds but it never really works.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 8, 2019
The entertainment value is there and Wounds most certainly had my attention most of the way through, but the swing and miss ending makes it tough to recommend.

... in fairness, it does have a terrific finale, but it's not one that can stitch up all of the loose, bleeding ends.
