Reviews
  • De Volkskrant: "Een smakelijk vervormde uitvergroting van de huiselijke lockdownhel. Victor Löw is indrukwekkend krankjorum als de man die met de beste intenties tot doodenge mondkapjesmaniak transformeert." ****. Lees de hele review hier.
  • De Filmkrant: Löw, die de film met verve draagt, ziet er op een gegeven moment uit als een soort kolonel Kurtz die de jungle probeert te bedwingen die de buitenwereld in coronatijd is geworden. Jacob oogt ook als een pakkende metafoor voor al die mensen die aan het begin van de pandemie in fake news tuinden. Opnieuw blijkt dat de genrefilm zich uitstekend leent voor wonderlijke en kritische blikken op de samenleving. Lees de hele review hier.
  • Film Vandaag: De openbaring is een thriller die in staat is je de hele tijd ongemakkelijk te laten voelen. Maar De openbaring is bovenal een masterclass filmmaken. ****. Lees de hele review hier.
  • Nachtvlinders: Een Nederlandse productie die zó sterk is heb ik niet vaak gezien en we mogen hier als Nederlanders trots op zijn. Hulde aan de makers en ga deze film zeker kijken. Vif sterren! Lees de hele review hier.

Reviews
  • ReogerEbert.com: Features more than enough flourishes of originality to elevate it above most possession films. Its characters and narratives are well thought-out and progress logically, without significantly deviating from their goals and themes. "The Exorcism of God" is always committed, and often surprising. 
  • Bandsaboutmovies.com: I have never seen a movie where a demon tries to exorcise God from the soul of a priest, so well done director Alejandro Hidalgo.
  • Heavenofhorror.com: So much works so extremely well in this movie, which is why it is definitely worth watching. Any fan of exorcism movies (or The Exorcist in particular) should not miss out on this one!
  • Ihorror.com: A two-fisted devilish good time. It's a tremendous take on the genre that proves there is still life in the world of cinematic exorcisms.
  • Scaredsheepless.wordpress.com: An energetic take on the possession movie.
  • Grimoireofhorror.com: This movie will definitely appeal to anyone who is a fan of a good exorcism. 4 out 5 stars.
  • Signalhorizon.com: There are genuinely unnerving jumpscares, extended bursts of violence, and loud bone-rattling roars that jangle the nerves and set your teeth on edge. It isn’t a cheap film full of one jump after another, but instead, well times scares that keep you poised for more. For fans of hyper-violence, unsettling imagery, and nervous laughter, The Exorcism Of God is an entertaining triumph
