Reviews


80
CineVue - Unnamed
For much of its brisk eighty-two minutes running time, Emelie (2015) is a devilishly good thriller of notably transgressive bent, giving the slasher and home invasion formats a rare matriarchal focus.
70
Village Voice - Abbey Bender
Emelie does create a menacing atmosphere and provide an interesting response to the "Final Girl" model that has long been the horror standard.
70
Los Angeles Times - Michael Rechtshaffen
Irish actress Bolger plays her psychopath with cool, calculating intimidation, while first-time feature director Michael Thelin, sharing screenplay credit with Rich Herbeck, lays a solid foundation of suburban domesticity on which to build all the mounting menace.
70
Variety - Guy Lodge
This potentially lurid material is lent considerable ballast and believability by the excellent work of its trio of child actors.
67
The A.V. Club - Noel Murray
The rest of Emelie doesn’t live up to its peaks, through no fault of star Sarah Bolger, who makes a memorable villain.
