About the Movie

This eerily seductive mind-bender is a dark, dreamlike descent into the depths of the unknown. Ten-year-old Nicolas (Max Brebant) lives in a remote seaside village populated only by boys his age and adult women. But when he makes a disturbing discovery beneath the ocean waves—a dead boy with a red starfish on his stomach—Nicolas begins to question everything about his existence. What are the half-remembered images he recalls, as if from another life? If the woman he lives with is not his mother, then who is she? And what awaits the boys when they are all suddenly confined to a hospital? The long-awaited new film from the acclaimed director of Innocence is awash in the haunting, otherworldly images of a nightmare.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's an impeccable, creepy and genuinely transporting movie. – Glenn Kenny, New York Times, Nov 24, 2016

Fresh: The movie capitalizes on our natural impulse to supply sinister explanations for those things left deliberately vague onscreen, encouraging auds' imaginations to personalize according to their own worst-case scenarios. – Peter Debruge, Variety, May 12, 2016

Fresh: After only two features, Hadihalilović has proven decidedly adept at skeeving you out with painterly but menacing spaces, not to mention the upsetting proximity of guileless children to controlling grown-ups. – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Nov 24, 2016

Rotten: The hermeticism of Evolution can also seem like a dead end, as Hadzihalilovic returns to the same voluptuously grotesque images and scenarios over and over again. – Melissa Anderson, Village Voice, Nov 22, 2016

Haunting

So creepy, stuck with me for days - some of the most beautiful and original horror since early Cronenberg. Don't miss it.

Not like what you think...

It's been explained as a subtle horror, not really for scares, but for the mind... but I don't think it reaches for that at all. Its most certainly not like The Witch (not in plot, and/or genre). It's just weird, and your not sure if it means anything more than what you see onscreen. It could be too smart of its own good, or really has no meaning at all. I know, this doesn't help, but if you watch it, you might have the same questions I might have as well.

Horrible

The worst movie I have ever seen!! A complete waste of 7$
Do NOT rent this movie!!!!
Also it's in French which Apple does not show anywhere on the previews!!
