The further Holy Spider leans into courtroom parable, the deeper it sinks into mediocrity, placing bets on beaten tropes that have been done more efficiently elsewhere – and with the required subversion blatantly amiss here.

What others think

There is a definite implausibility factor here, but the movie’s final act[...] is nicely managed.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
This is a repellent film in many ways, but its maker appears to be very conscious of that fact.
David Jenkins Little White Lies
The obvious justification for such relentless, suffocating unpleasantness is a sort of it-is-what-it-is-realism.
