WHERE TO WATCH Lord of Misrule (2023):


"The finale ultimately satisfies, given Rebecca’s character arc, but Lord of Misrule is carried by the strength of its intriguing mythology and stunning production value. Burrow is a deeply weird town that feels lived in, rich with details and history. The creepy atmosphere and striking imagery on display help offset a folk horror entry that eventually tries to shake up the blueprint, though it’s not wholly successful along the way." ★★½ BloodyDisgusting.com

" ...a rich and haunting tale that is as much an epic horror tale as it is social commentary. This spellbinding cinematic tale is a complex visual and narrative experience that feels like it could be based on a bestselling novel from a master of the genre. Lord of Misrule is a film worth going to the cinema to experience." Tumblr.com/FearsMagazine/

"For viewers newer to folk horror cinema, Lord of Misrule should offer plenty to keep them captivated. More seasoned fans of the subgenre will find much of the film familiar and perhaps even derivative at times, but it does serve up enough positive qualities to recommend it to this group for a watch, as well." ★★★½ GruesomeMagazine.com

"The female lead is good, but some of the elements involving somewhat gender-stereotypical actions and reactions just didn’t work for me. Or to put it plainly; They made me immediately think: "A man must’ve written this!" which is never good [...] It doesn’t ruin anything for the story overall, but it did make me stop and take notice." ★★★ HeavenOfHorror.com

"...Lord of Misrule doesn’t do enough with its potentially interesting historical situatedness. Like everything else in the film, it’s all surface, no depth [...] My disappointment was compounded because I thought Bell’s The Boy was an innovative film, weaving gothic horror with (unexpectedly) slasher traditions. There is no such innovation here – just paint-by-numbers folk horror." HorrorHomeroom.com

"Lord of Misrule blends the folk horror, possession, and murder-mystery genres in a way that lessens the impact of all three. While the film’s invented version of British folklore gives it some interesting texture and imagery, it lacks a strong point of view." IGN.com

"The pain of losing a child has to be unbearable, let alone the mystery of not knowing exactly what may have happened to them. Had Lord of Misrule mixed this notion better with its imagery and haunting elements, Bell would have elevated this "elevated horror" attempt. Instead, it underwhelms and meanders. By the time a visceral gut punch occurs, the momentary excitement does not make up for a misguided mishmash of genre ideas..." JoshAtTheMovies.com

"With its literate and well-crafted screenplay and unrelenting atmosphere of terror, William Brent Bell’s Lord of Misrule takes its place beside [...] excellent folk horror pictures. A clever and well-designed film born of myths and folklore rituals, this is one of the creepiest horror films in some time." TheMovieRevue.com
