9th Life of Louis Drax, The (15)

Mystery, Thriller

A psychologist who begins working with a young boy who has suffered a near-fatal fall finds himself drawn into a mystery that tests the boundaries of fantasy and reality.

The critical consensus

Alexandre Aja's dark drama swings between creepy fantasy and run-of-the mill procedural.

***(*)(*)Angie Errigo, The List, 30/08/2016

Horror film-maker Alexandre Aja turns in a tonally odd supernatural thriller which hits its stride when creepy stuff starts to happen.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 01/09/2016

Confusing narrative and tonal shifts suggest Aja is meant for horror only.

**(*)(*)(*)Poppy Doran, Little White Lies

The film’s characters are more gullible than credible and its plot isn’t exactly full of surprises.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 02/09/2016

Director Alexandre Aja successfully swaps horror for fantasy in a quirky thriller that owes much to Pan’s Labyrinth.
