Reviews: Gaia (2021)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: It’s an unnerving and very well performed genre film that doesn’t need to do a whole lot for it to get under your skin. Whether this will connect to a mainstream audience, I kind of doubt it, but I can imagine horror fans embracing this, and appreciating it for what it is.
  • Brent McKnight @ The Last Thing I See
    • Excerpt: Transformative eco-horror with a lot on its mind, the distinctive visuals and off-center mood are enough to smooth over most of the rough spots and make this well worth watching.
  • [New] | Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage
    • Excerpt: Bouwer utilizes a memorable aesthetic that personifies nature while also reducing humanity to its base yearning for satisfaction.

    • Excerpt: Making its mark on the eco-horror field, Gaia forgoes deep character development to focus on larger themes of man vs. nature, all underscored by a chilling sense of unease. The hallucinogenic visual effects are often stunning as is the expert creature design. Carel Nel as a crazed survivalist really pops.
