Reviews:

” …Belzebuth will inevitably divide audiences. There will be people who find the film’s premise too distasteful. There will be people who dismiss this film as yet another run-of-the-mill possession movie. However, Belzebuth is a fresh take on an old subgenre and uses its violence in a way that doesn’t feel like an attack on the viewer.” Dax Ebaben, Bloody Disgusting

“There are some effective moments in the climax typical of exorcism movies, with the variant of being located in a narco-tunnel between Mexico and the United States, as well as supposedly terrifying moments that are more laughable than several gags from El crimen del Cácaro Gumaro (that talking Christ figure!)” Eric Ortiz Garcia, Screen Anarchy

“A mix of elements from the likes of Seven, The X-Files and Deliver Us From Evil, Belzebuth starts out as a fairly straight, if horrific police thriller. The supernatural elements start to creep in and by the halfway mark it’s firmly in the horror genre. It works up some creepy atmosphere and jump scares. One scene that should have been a highlight, the investigation of an abandoned church, is badly hurt by some terrible effects.” Jim Morazzini, Voices from the Balcony
