Lamb (2021) | Reviews

Refusal to explicitly define the supernatural elements in play means they're uncanny throughout, retaining power to unsettle through to the film’s closing moments.

A film that proves just how far disbelief can be suspended if you're in the hands of a director - and a cast, and an SFX/puppetry department - who really commit to the bit.

Lamb plays like a quiet, often bleak folk tale that’s tonally all over the map but approached with an infectious earnestness.

Lamb is certainly audacious and eerie enough to establish a competent genre filmmaker with vision to spare.
