Ratings

MPAA Ratings

  • Rated: PG-13 (Violence, Profanity, Adult Content)

Tentacle Ratings

A rough measure of how "Lovecraftian" the work is:

  • SS___ (Two Tentacles: Barely Lovecraftian; could be a very loose adaptation)

The daughter is apparently dragged under a giant hill by an ghastly alien race, and returns changed in some horrific way....

Note: This rating is not intended as a measure of quality, merely of how closely related to Lovecraftian "Weird" fiction the work is.

Reviews

Review Links:

  • David Nusair at the Reel Film Reviews (2.5/4 Stars) (link) - "...the irritatingly ambiguous conclusion - which leaves far too many unanswered questions on the table - ultimately cements The New Daughter's place as a well-intentioned misfire."
  • Andy Webb at The Movie Scene (3/5 Stars) (link) - "...if you like European style horror movies then "The New Daughter" might be up your street as it has that slow styling. But as I said it does make it laboured for those more use to quicker paced horror movies."
