Critic Reviews:

Carried mostly by strong performances from the leads and some well-written dialogue, The Righteous won’t be for everyone. And honestly, that’s about all you should know going into it. The film’s appeal lies in the sense of dread as secrets of the past and present are slowly revealed, right up until the unsettling climax.


With some tragic twists throughout its storyline and an ending you’ll be thinking about long after the credits roll, O’Brien proves he knows how to write up a full-length movie. His directing skills are on point, just as every actor making “The Righteous” for what it is: a solid horror film leaning on its dramatic side, but with a shock factor you won’t see coming.


O’Brien creates some riveting two-player verbal duels, and he throws lot of ideas at the wall, even if they feel less purposely ambiguous and more stubbornly unclear. [...] What we do know is that when you long for spiritual punishment, you don’t get to choose how it’s delivered.
