Critic Reviews:

What does not work is the film’s mundane energy and failing to evoke mystery at every step. The over-simplistic storytelling tames your drive to discover. Even the wandering spirit has a strategy in place and that’s preposterous. You do not feel terrified as much as you’d like.

As a director, who is remaking his own film, it takes true courage to replicate it shot-for-shot. One might imagine there would at least be some improvement or refinement in the storytelling. Director Jay K lives up to the popular abbreviation: just kidding.

..."Dybbuk" is a remake of a Malayalam film, "Ezra." A remake implies both a commercially successful original and a decent watch. But had “Dybbuk” released in the movie halls, it would have been a lost force, beginning with a title that no one will understand until it is explained. The film ends up as just another banal horror movie.
