A melodramatic beginning,police stuff, and fantastic overtones (good scene the insects in Helen Shaver face); but Schlesinger loses ellegance in the conventional intrigue.

Miika's Movie Diary - 2018 (171 movies items)

"11.10, PC Tässä on välillä joitain ihan tunnelmallisia kohtauksia, mutta The Believers tökkii siinä, että tällainen voodoo-kulttikauhu ei loppujen lopuksi ole kovinkaan kiinnostavaa. Jäin kaipaamaan enemmän gorea ja voodoo-sekoilua, jota Jimmy Smits tässä harrastaa."

TDcore's Horror Journal: 2018 (50 movies items)

" There aren't enough horror films about Voodoo and other such ancient beliefs in my opinion, and while this little flick isn't quite Angel Heart, I think it deserves to be more well remembered than it is. It's a more traditional thriller, and at first it seems to paint by the numbers. The fantastic performances keep things going until about the middle of the film when things begin to take shape and get interesting. There's some genuine tension and good old fashioned suspense, with some scenes"
