  • Clark Collis

    While this Blumhouse production may be a less ruthlessly efficient scream machine than, say, its corporate sibling "Ouija," it is much more atmospheric and benefits from a winning central performance from Snook.

    There isn’t a single jump scare in this thing. On the other hand, it would be nice if Jessabelle tried a little harder.

  • Bilge Ebiri

    It’s a strange spectacle: a horror film that spends as much time dismantling suspense as it does building it.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    The script’s by Robert Ben Garant, also behind last year’s scary-movie spoof “Hell Baby,” and this one teeters right on the edge of laughable, with its V.C. Andrews-like series of goth twists.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Justin Lowe

    The too-infrequent scare techniques, however, are mostly by the book, rarely developing sufficient dread to heighten the film’s rather unremarkable climax.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Jessabelle serves up a murky and underwhelming cauldron of Southern-fried voodoo-horror claptrap.

    Variety Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    Director Kevin Greutert, who cut his teeth on the Saw series (editing the first five and directing Saw VI and Saw 3D), whips up some generic Louisiana atmosphere, but his PG-13 shock effects are ineffectual, and he’s eventually given over entirely to a story that twists into melodramatic knots. The takeaway from all this: Sometimes less is more.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    An ineffective, derivative, and awkwardly executed mash-up of ghost flicks and voodoo movies.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Sheila O'Malley

    Steeped in Southern Gothic melodrama, Jessabelle is interesting in some of the small details, and in its strong sense of the Louisiana bayou atmosphere, and then it completely falls apart when it starts being a horror film. Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    Jessabelle is depressingly rote.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Greutert's savvy enough to sprinkle some white folks among his houngans and mambos, but Jessabelle still plays out as Haitian traditions ruining the life of a nice-ish white lady.

  • Inkoo Kang

    Unfortunately, it's just when Jessabelle looks like it might transcend its haunted-house trappings that the Southern Gothic clichés rear their tortured, screaming heads.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Nick McCarthy

    Rather than commit to exploring Jessabelle's existential crisis, the filmmakers opt to pile on the clichés straight until the rotten denouement.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    There are few scares here, but plenty of mild grossness. The absurd ending ties up the mystery in a way that’s sure to annoy both supernaturalists and realists.
